Kudos to Debbie Swanson and her magnificent team at Grand Forks Public Health for the way they are managing the COVID vaccination program. I recently completed my shots at the Alerus site, and I really appreciated how well all the personnel (National Guard, police, etc.) combined to make the whole experience pleasant and efficient.
At a time when some folks are apt to think government is a problem, perhaps we should reflect that this vaccination program is being organized and conducted by mission-driven government employees who are passionate about keeping citizens safe and well.
Thanks to all of you – and well done!
