Sudbury letter: Coordinate, designate, vaccinate

Article content

It seems that everyone is trying to make this vaccination too complicated.

I’ve had three sets of vaccinations this last year with no help from anyone except a very competent nurse. Just tell me the time place date and I’ll be there.

In the 2016 census for Sudbury, there were 4,080 seniors 80 to 84 years, 3,835 who were 85 years or older, for a total of 8,915. Let’s say 10,000 today, give or take a few.

There are 62 pharmacies in the district; that would make 261 per pharmacy. Let’s say a 10-hour day, three nurses doing their job, equates to eight an hour, not an arduous task.

I’m taking a giant leap in assuming someone in the country, province, city can identify us …if they know how many, they must know who we are.

Everyone would be notified by mail, internet, dog team, whatever.

This is the way I would vaccinate the public, at least the seniors. The others are not my concern.

You would be notified of the time, date and place — no need to respond unless you couldn’t make it.

Too many people are involved for a rather simple job.

How can the whole country or province vote in a day?

Instead of wasting our time on the everyday TV soap opera, let’s get serious.

Coordinate, designate, vaccinate. No problem.
