From the editorial board of the Miami Herald:
Getting the COVID vaccine is not a “personal choice.” It never was, really, but the onslaught of cases fueled by the delta variant has removed any doubt. And yet that’s not what Florida’s governor would have you believe.
On Friday, Gov. DeSantis actually uttered these incredible — and incorrect — words about the vaccine: “It’s about your health and whether you want that protection or not. It really doesn’t impact me or anyone else.”
Doesn’t impact anyone else? Talk about a profile in selfishness. Too bad we can’t ask the thousands who have died since vaccines became available if they wished everyone around them had gotten vaccinated. If that’s not enough reason, spare a thought for healthcare workers.

New in Opinion from @HeraldOpEd: Spare a thought for healthcare workers. We called them heroes a year ago, banged pots and pans at the end of their shifts, sent them lunch and dinner.
Now, 18 months in, they’re exhausted. https://t.co/rtGwk1lmZE
