Letter: Vaccines are our only way out of this

The vaccine mandates did not go far enough.

I would propose that if you choose not to get vaccinated then you shouldn’t get on an airplane, enter a grocery store, attend a sporting event … the list goes on.

This is not about “your” freedom — as Arnold Schwarzenegger so succinctly put it “screw your freedom.” If you want to be selfish and kill each other, then please, feel free to do so.

As long as this virus continues to run amok among the unvaccinated there is a possibility a new variant may emerge that evades the vaccines. This is all the more reason to get the damn shot. Maybe the unvaccinated can take a break from social media and Newsmax conspiracies and, yes, even Fox News, long enough for common sense to regain control.

Until everyone accepts the fact that vaccines are our only way out of this, then a return to normalcy, whatever that is anymore, is still a long way off.

Bill Owens, Sandy
