    Since the vaccine has been readily available locally for almost two months, most of the people who are now dying from covid are people who refused the vaccine. Yes there is a small percentage of people who are allergic or very ill and have been directed by their doctor not to take it. But how very sad to be dying now for something that is preventable and for which you rejected the vaccine. Two people died here in Escambia last week. It is your choice.

    Thanks, to all who wore the masks and protected themselves and others from this awfull virus. We can now go about our business without being masked.
    This vaccine has been in the works for 10 years + .

    Escambia County population is 318,000. 108,000 vaccinated. 7,000 in two week. 4 weeks to July. is 14,000 more. We will never reach herd immunity at this rate. 70% is 222,600 people. At 14,000 every two weeks, We will get herd immunity in 30 weeks and that is if wee maintain 14,000 every two weeks, which we will not!
    Lets get off our butts and get vaccinated.

    I’m very disappointed that there are people like you in our community that were lazy and selfish enough to put their own convenience ahead of protecting their community

    Memorial Day weekend is about remembering and honoring the people that made the ultimate sacrifice to defend their country.

    …and you can’t even make the sacrifice of wearing a piece of cloth over your face for 5 minutes when you go to the store to pick up groceries.

    Oh what a TRUE AMERICAN HERO. How did you live to be 66?

    Do you wear a seatbelt? Do you obey those OPPRESSIVE stop signs?

    My choice never abided by government rules? No drivers license? Stealing and assault? Either your a liar or an idiot. There are many rules you abide by. You may pick and choose which ones you abide by but never the less you do abide by some of them. Grandstanding is all your doing, crowing look at me! Get over it.

    I’m curious to know if this figure includes shots given at Pensacola Naval Hospital and the VA clinic.
