Letter to the Editor RTSA

It is time that the unvaccinated be held accountable for their actions. I attended a funeral a couple of weeks ago for the wife of a cousin. Her death was not the story. The fact she had to die in a strange town and a strange hospital over 200 miles from home because that was the closest hospital with an ICU bed available, because of all the unvaccinated COVID-19 patients using the ICU beds in her local hospital and other hospitals. 

So she spent her last few days without having friends and family around her at the end of  her 10-year health battle.

Give the unvaccinated the freedom to choose, but when it affects others they need to be held accountable. I recommend the following: Unvaccinated be denied access to any medical or dental facility, especially if they have COVID-19; deny them unemployment benefits if they choose to leave their job rather that be vaccinated; deny them workers comp if they lose work time because they have COVID-19; deny them any future government benefits that may be paid out because of COVID-19. 

We are all responsible for the actions we take, and it is time that the unvaccinated accept responsibility for their actions and the rest of the community hold them responsible for their acts.
