LENOIR, N.C. — I continue to have conversations with people who will not get a COVID vaccine. I don’t understand.
So, I do not know how to respond. However, Dr. Paul Klotman, President, CEO and Dean of the of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston does. I encourage you to watch this week’s video from him if you are still undecided about getting the vaccine. The first 11:10 is devoted to the situation in India. It is worth watching as a cautionary tale for us. Then, at 11:11 in the video, Dr. Klotman turns to the situation in the United States. The facts are stunningly disturbing, considering where we could be as a nation since supply of the vaccine exceeds demand in the United States.
The earth is not flat and the vaccine is saving lives. Both are absolute facts. Just like gravity. Ignore the last law, and you will fall. The same is true for a nation that chooses to ignore science.
Note: An earlier version identified the Baylor College of Medicine as the Baylor College of Texas. Sorry for the error.
