Detroit Three automaker employees left waiting for COVID-19 vaccines amid shortage

General Motors intended to let its global workforce know by late December about its plan for when a COVID-19 vaccine would be available and how GM would administer it to those who wanted it.

Now, nearly three months later, there are no vaccines available to GM and so no firm plan yet.

Similarly, across town, Ford Motor Co. in November bought 12 ultra-cold freezers globally to store vaccines. The freezers remain largely empty and any plan to administer the shots is on ice.

Only Stellantis, formerly called Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, recently secured 1,200 shots through Illinois’ Boone County Health Department and administered them to about a third of its workforce at its Belvidere Assembly plant. But it, too, hasn’t nailed down a plan to administer the shots beyond that.
