Letter: 'Are you fully vaccinated?' is the most important, unasked question
Letter to the editor

Dear editor:

It was great to get back in the gym at the NOTL Community Centre on Saturday morning. Finally, at least in this country, we are seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

To enter the facility I was required to answer a few COVID-related questions:

Have you been out of the country in the past 14 days?  No.

Do you have any of the following symptoms ... ?  No.

Are you living with or have you come in contact with anyone with COVID-19?  No.

But wait, aren't you going to ask me another question?

The most important of all?

Are you fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

With a mountain of irrefutable evidence and as our governments justifiably exert immense energy reminding us that getting vaccinated is the key to getting back to normal and saving lives, why on earth is this not the first question to be asked?
