“Dr Bonnie Henry confirmed that 41,064 British Columbians have received their first of two doses as of Thursday.”
Letter to the Editor
We very much appreciate Peace Arch News’ work in keeping us informed about the COVID pandemic and Dr Bonnie Henry’s helpful leadership.
Sadly only 0.5% of Canadians have been vaccinated so far. Are we willing to learn from other countries like Israel who have vaccinated over 15% of their population?
With previous vaccines, Canada made active use of their local GP’s and Pharmacists. Why are we largely leaving our GPs out in the cold? They are trusted experts.
Endless lockdowns amidst bureaucratic delays is no solution. Let’s be humble enough to learn from Israel’s COVID vaccination successes.
Rev Dr Ed Hird
