Letter to the editor: Incompetent plan

To the editor:

The county health department’s failed rollout of its incompetent Phase 2 COVID vaccine plan borders on negligence. They have had at least six months to plan for the delivery of the vaccine. Only incompetence would deliver a plan such as theirs. By their count there are 40,000 people in the county who are eligible under Phase 2. Why would you not implement a system to identify interested citizens and schedule appointments ahead of time? Every successful county/state health system nationwide has followed that plan. How many more Douglas County citizens will become ill and possibly die because of their incompetence in delivery of the vaccine?

Steve Byrn,
