Letter: Island Drug deserving of our thanks, appreciation


Every day the Island Drug COVID-19 team faces crowds of mostly older citizens searching for vaccinations. Every day they deal with endless COVID-19 questions, delivery cancellations, schedule changes and stacks of pre-vaccination paperwork.

They control this chaos with lots of hard work, great skill, creativity and the patience of Job. I’m amazed at their resilience. I’d have run off screaming days ago.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for putting up with all of us and for the critically important work you’re doing.
