Isn’t a shot better than risking COVID repercussions?

In response to Bart Anderson’s letter on 8-1-21, Mr. Anderson needs to do more research on COVID-19.

No, not everyone dies from the disease but there are repercussions. Just ask some of those who have had the disease, recovered and have what is referred to as “Long Haulers”.

Some have had lung transplants, some developed a heart disease, there are many repercussions for the recovery of some.

Children have died from the disease, maybe not in Mohave County but other places.

I would just like to remind the people of Mohave County, Benjamin Franklin said: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

Wouldn’t you rather get a shot than risk getting COVID and whatever repercussion might result from the illness?

Asking for the shot when they are getting ready to put you on a ventilator is a little late don’t you think?

I don’t know who needs to hear this but polio and smallpox never reached natural herd immunity.

They were eradicated ty vaccines.

Adults of today couldn’t attend school until they had their list of immunizations, as children.

Soldiers weren’t asked if they would like to have a vaccine, they were lined up and given shots down the line to assure good health.

So why not be a good soldier and get the shot to be safe as can be rather than sorry when you have no choice?
