LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Anti-vaxxers increasing risks for health-care workers

Hospitals filling up, surgeries being cancelled because of selfishness, says letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Ventilators should go to patients who did their part to combat virus, Letters, Oct. 6.

I agree with the letter writers who wrote that the anti-vaxxers should not be getting preferential treatment over those who have followed the science and gotten vaccinated. Our hospitals are filling up with anti-vaxxers, surgeries are being cancelled for people who need it, because of the selfishness of the anti-vaxxers. It’s a sad time for our hospital front-line workers when they have to start making decisions over who lives and dies.

Thank you to our health-care workers for their dedication through what I am sure is the worst time in their careers. You are all heroes and I hope everyone gives you the respect you deserve.

To the anti-vaxxers protesting outside hospitals, shame on you. Don’t go to those same hospitals when you get COVID, you don’t deserve to put those same hospital workers at risk.

C. Chemko, Nanaimo
