I realize many don’t want to hear my words. In regard to the pandemic in general and vaccines specifically, opinions have been formed and outlooks set. But I still have hope, and I will continue to use my voice to paint an accurate picture of the reality we are facing inside the hospital walls. Those of you who have decided to forego the COVID-19 vaccination are gambling with your lives. COVID-19 has not just gone away. It is here and, with the Delta variant, it is getting harder, folks.
