I was fortunate to receive my first COVID-19 vaccination last month (due to age and health issues). One of the few places I go during the pandemic is the supermarket, where I make the occasional trip. While chatting with the man behind the fish counter, I found out that he and his fellow grocery store workers have not been able to receive vaccinations. When I expressed surprise and dismay, he said, “Yes, we are just essential workers.”
This is wrong. We must protect those who take care of us.
