Designed to protect all
Regarding the Sept. 2 Metro article “More legal tests over vaccine mandates”:
Born in Shanghai in 1936 at the Country Hospital in the French Concession to an American mother and British father, I was vaccinated against smallpox before leaving the hospital. At that time, many Chinese were dying in the streets of smallpox and other diseases.
It is difficult for me to understand why some Americans are now challenging vaccine mandates that are designed to protect them and all of us from the coronavirus. And at the same time, students and doctors from all over the world are coming here to study advanced medicine without political hesitations.
