To the Editor:

This letter is addressed to all people who choose not to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

I spent the last year and a half following all the instructions given to us by people in the health field. I wore my mask (still do), avoided crowds (still do), stayed indoors as much as possible and lastly got vaccinated. I only spoke to my friends via computer or phone and only met with my sister occasionally. I have endured speaking to my doctors via phone, which has been difficult as I am hearing impaired.

I finally volunteered at our local zoo for the first time in over a year. I hope next month to go back to volunteering at our local senior center. I plan to visit my friends who I haven’t seen in a long time. Also I want to get back to volunteering and fund raising at events for our local shelter.

As I listen to the news I am scared that I will never get my life back to some semblance of normality and my goals will be jeopardized by the increasing numbers of contagion that are taking place. According to the news a high percentage of the cases have been in people not vaccinated.

So what gives you the right to undermine my precautions for the last year!

So you are worried about long-term health problems? Well without a vaccination you may not have to worry about that as you may not be here! Is this a political ploy to thumb your nose at our politicians? Look at the percentages by party of those who are not getting vaccinated. It is time to forget about playing politics.

To conclude, you may not only be putting me (a senior citizen with health problems) under jeopardy but those you associate with. Your family and friends are at risk. Become educated and informed but ultimately please do me and the community you live in some consideration and get vaccinated.

You say that those of us who have not gotten vaccinated are playing politics. This whole covid-19 vaccination is politics. It's all about having us jump through more and more hoops until we are more and more like China or Communist Russia. Whatever happened to "it's my body my choice" like all the women who have been killing babies for the last 40 years? It's ironic too because I've seen more people who have been vaccinated with health problems as a senior than I have people who have gotten sick or died from covid. I also have allergy problems but my primary reason is it's my body my choice. Why didn't you go after all the women killing babies if you're going out to those not getting vaccinated?
