My Take: By Gordon Lambie

My Take: By Gordon Lambie

I don’t know how to have a conversation about vaccine priorities that doesn’t just boil down to arguing about who should live and who should die.
I know that for many the stakes are not that high, but without being 100 per cent certain about how contracting COVID is going to impact a person’s life in the long term, isn’t the question of whether or not they get a shot essentially just playing the odds?
It is vitally important for the needs and experiences of vulnerable communities that are not being heard to be amplified, but I don’t believe for a second that I know better than our directors of public health who should be first in line. Unfortunately, the unpredictability of this pandemic means that even their expertise is not always going to be right, but I still trust that they’re doing their best.
