Letter: Fight pandemic globally


I appreciate the great news that the vast majority of health care workers in our state are vaccinated (“Survey: 88 percent of Washington health care workers fully vaccinated,” Associated Press, Oct. 11) So many negative stories have been circulated, it is great to read this truth. Meanwhile, the sad truth is the low-income countries around the world are still hoping for vaccines. This matters because we will never be free of this pandemic and its variants until it is ended globally. If President Biden hears from us (call 202-456-1111), he is more likely to lead the way out of this dilemma by making vaccination technology accessible to all countries.
