(re: “Just don’t believe the government,” Sept. 2)
The recent letter from a COVID-19 anti-vaxxer was not just wrong, it was dead wrong.
Not getting vaccinated could be deadly — for you and for someone close to you. Accurate information about vaccines is easily available to anyone who is willing to look for it with an open mind and a respect for facts rather than opinions.
Only a willful refusal to believe factual information can lead you to conclude that you shouldn’t get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Consider that today more than 95 percent of those who are hospitalized with COVID-19 are unvaccinated, and more than 95 percent of those who die from complications from COVID-19 are unvaccinated.
COVID-19 is an epidemic of the unvaccinated. Vaccines save lives.
