Dear Editor,

Wearing a mask is required, hand sanitizing, social distancing are all required and enforced for entering the Johnson County Hospital and Family Medical Center. I fully support these requirements as a necessary means of protecting other patients, medical staff and myself.

However, I was disgusted and shocked to find that medical staff and workers are not required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as it becomes available and that half of them refused. This is a flagrant disrespect of vulnerable people seeking help at the facility.

At the very minimum, I, as a patient, deserve to know if someone treating me or providing service has received the vaccine when offered. A badge, a patch, or otherwise advising me of their cooperation should be required.
