State Rep. Randall Greenwood is among the fortunate people who have recovered from COVID, thanks to the efforts of those who cared for him in the hospital (see Sun Journal, “Wales lawmaker out of hospital after COVID-19; still speaking out against vaccine,” Nov. 17).

Many others have not been so lucky.Based on his own “research,” he worries about the potential side effects of the vaccine. But he was willing to trust the science of ventilators, other medications and treatments he received, costing tens of thousands of dollars. His hospital costs will be paid by all of us through his taxpayer-funded health insurance.While vaccinated people are being hospitalized with COVID, they are the minority. Unvaccinated people are consuming scarce health care resources and causing delays in care for those with serious conditions.
