To the editor:

I am contacting you regarding the responses to your June 17 poll which posed the question: “Have you and your family and your close friends all received the COVID-19 vaccine?” I must say, I was surprised and then dismayed to learn that 59% of respondents indicated they have not yet received any doses of the vaccine!

If this is indeed true, then the citizens of Alexandria need more information regarding the demographics of these non-vaccinated respondents. For example, where do they shop? Do they go to the YMCA, the library, the movies, restaurants? Do they have kids attending the public schools?

The subject of this particular survey was far more serious than the usual lighthearted queries with far more significant consequences for all of us. COVID-19 is still with us even as most businesses have ended restrictions on the basis that that most citizens are vaccinated. As this survey suggests otherwise, I am hopeful that the Alexandria Times can address some of these concerns in subsequent articles.
