So many articles of late have covered the opinions of the unvaccinated in relation to the requirement that health care workers and state employees get vaccinated.

As one of the millions of Oregonians who have gotten vaccinated, I would like to express my opinion that those who have voluntarily chosen to continue to be agents of illness and death should not be in contact with the public, or, especially our children, no matter their past service as public employees. Their disregard for the health and safety of our community members is disqualifying.

If these public servants are truly public servants, they will do what is right for the health and safety of the rest of us and get their vaccinations. If not, we do not owe them employment.
