Let’s end COVID!

With contagious COVID-19 variants arriving, this pandemic makes me realize that we are all in this together.

None of us is safe until all of us are safe.

Now that the supply of vaccines is plentiful, it is up to us to make sure that the demand for them keeps pace. The goal is to reach herd immunity before COVID variants become more widespread and possibly vaccine resistant.

Locally, it is important to support the proposal of a community group called “Let’s End COVID!”

These volunteers recommend that our commissioners sponsor an immunization drive using a small fraction of the federal COVID relief money that is allocated to the people of Lycoming County.

I think we would also benefit from community physicians and other clinicians communicating about this as trusted messengers both publicly, as well as directly with their patients.

Let’s all pull together. We can do this!
