Regarding “Heavy heart,” Nov. 19, Page 27:

In response to the intensive care nurse barred from his profession because of his beliefs that do not allow him to receive the COVID-19 vaccine: Why aren’t you adhering to Pope Francis’ urgings for all to get vaccinated, which he gave months ago?

Have not ICU nurses experienced COVID-19 patients who finally beg for the vaccine — in their last minutes of life?

You should be steeped in science a bit more than the average person. You would also have had a short course in the history of vaccines. Please re-think some of your ideas, and understand you could be a carrier, even without symptoms.
