Yesterday, I received an e-mail from Jeff in Burnsville MN, raising a concern with his legislator about the timeline for Covid-19 vaccine. I am reprinting his letter, and the legislators response with Jeff’s permission. NOTE TO READERS. Constituent letters are aways effective. Best to write to your own representatives at whatever level: your state legislator, your congressperson, etc. These days, via e-mail is probably the best way to communicate.
Jeff’s letter to his State Senator and Representative Jan. 14:
I am writing this email to both my representatives together to ask why Minnesota is lagging in its distribution of its allocated Covid 19 vaccines. According to the NY Times as of January 13 only 32% of the allocation has been distributed. Michigan, North Dakota and South Dakota are all higher, I just saw the Governor of Kentucky say that his state’s 50%+ vaccination rate was not acceptable.
