LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Vaccination information

2019 Letters to the editor stock

We have been told that during uncertain times, we must trust the science. Certainly, the newness of COVID was, and continues to be, a test, and sometimes, advice changes as new things are learned. Also, we had to re-learn that the best decisions are made when the relevant data becomes available for our analysis. In the spirit of these lessons, I would like to share some information regarding COVID vaccinations.

Percentage of Adults Fully Vaccinated as of June 8, 2021: Chicago = 51.0%; Wisconsin = 45.6%; Michigan = 43.1%; the United States = 42.1%; Illinois = 41.2%; Ohio = 41.2%; Kentucky = 39.3%: Indiana =36.4%.

By the way, the percentage of unvaccinated people who have either been hospitalized by the virus or died from it stands at 98%.

I think that knowing these statistics can assist anyone who is unsure about whether or not to get vaccinated. It is also a situation where not making a decision is really making a decision. I hope this helps.

Terry Ferrari, Dyer
