To the editor,

Re: Vaccine bookings triple days after B.C. vaccine card announced, Aug. 25

We have people in this province who are criticizing the B.C. government on its mask mandate and the issuing of vaccine cards and guess what, requests for vaccines have tripled.

Maybe if these people were to have followed the rules in the first place, B.C. wouldn’t have these issues now with the COVID rate going up.
