Letter: Are we really this stupid?

Published: 7/30/2021 7:00:08 AM

Unless you have a valid medical reason for not getting vaccinated, how can a significant minority of Americans (even in New England) appear to be so stupid as to not get vaccinated?

I am a strong advocate for individual rights, but choosing not to get vaccinated because of some misperceived “right” is not only ignorant of the science, but also putting others, including your family and your children, at risk of serious illness or worse. Come on, people. Think about others for a change!
