In response to the lawmaker from Androscoggin County who still refuses to get vaccinated, I have a few questions.
Who paid for the 12-day stay in the hospital? I am guessing it is his insurance coverage, which in turn drives up the cost of medical insurance for all of us. Could someone else have been in need of a ventilator, maybe an accident victim or a cancer patient? What about the doctors and nurses that helped him, could their time and effort have been put to better use?
He can say it is a personal choice, but it is far more than that. I believe he and others like him have put others at risk. Do what is right and get the damn shot.
