Letter: Anti-vaxxers need to be held accountable

Editor,

It’s far beyond time to hold the anti-vaxxers accountable. In the U.S, it is the unvaccinated who are currently contracting the virus in 95 out of 100 cases. Getting the vaccine should no longer be a choice. Religious or political exemptions should not be accepted. Any person that refuses the vaccine and gets sick with COVID gives up his right to a hospital stay. He/she should stay home and fight it by themselves.

The people who need a hospital bed for real reasons out of their control should not be held back because a self-proclaimed anti-vaxxer is occupying one of the only beds that may be available.
