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.
