I wholeheartedly support the decision by CentraCare and Carris Health to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for all its employees and clinicians.

I have no problem with employees who are unable to take the vaccine because of religious and medical reasons, provided they wear full personal protection equipment and get tested once a week.

The development of today’s COVID-19 vaccines was based on many years of research in the United States and abroad, and rigorous testing has found the vaccines to be safe and effective.

Many sources of reliable and factual information about COVID-19 and vaccine development are available to assist everyone in making rational and informed decisions about helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and its variants.
