CHARLES FELIX, CO-PUBLISHER

At the risk of repeating myself, PLEASE GET VACCINATED. Don’t wait for the horse to leave the barn and rely on monoclonal antibodies AFTER you’ve already gotten COVID (and potentially spread it to friends and family.) Don’t take that chance – the life you save may be your own, your families, your friends and co-workers.

I understand we’re all tired of COVID but none more so than the thousands of healthcare professionals in our Florida communities. They are bone tired. They are depressed and at risk both physically and mentally. And our emergency response must be support and compliance by getting our vaccines, our boosters AND wearing masks. Don’t leave home without them.
