This se­nior puts younger peo­ple first

I ad­mire Dr. Bon­nie Henry’s com­mon-sense ap­proach to han­dling this pan­demic.

Hope­fully, she will ex­press her opin­ion about the pri­or­i­tiz­ing of the vac­cine.

As an 80-year-old, I ob­ject to hav­ing a higher pri­or­ity than peo­ple half my age or younger.

I have a prob­lem with the state­ment that chil­dren and ado­les­cents, im­muno­com­pro­mised adults and preg­nant women would be vac­ci­nated “as soon as it is fea­si­ble.”

I will not ac­cept this vac­cine un­til it is de­ter­mined that there are suf­fi­cient quan­ti­ties to vac­ci­nate all Cana­di­ans.

I’m sure many se­niors agree and will put the con­cern for the lives of our younger peo­ple and chil­dren ahead of their own.
