Letter: Covid coverage was just what the doctor ordered

Dear Editor,

Thank you. I just finished reading your article "Covid comes knocking" and I deeply appreciate both your sensitivity and your fact-based reporting which lays out the relative risk of getting Covid when vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Breakthrough Covid is real, and as the disease continues to ravage the unvaccinated and more virus continues to persist in our community, breakthrough cases will increase, particularly as the vaccine protection begins to wane. And still, as you reported, the risk of serious harm is quite small if you are vaccinated. I haven’t seen such clear reporting and clarity of perspective anywhere. Thank you.

Thanks for your contribution to the community. Best paper in the region.

Erik Peterson,
