Letter: Bravo to Indiana’s vaccination system

Last week’s lead story on COVID [Indiana’s vax rollout gets mixed reviews, April 2] gave oversized emphasis to a point back in paragraph 15 about people who have argued they should have been closer to the front of the line.

During these recent months, I have asked folks I encounter about their experience with Indiana’s vaccination sites. Everyone praised the sign-up system and the excellent organization at the places where they got their shots.

One needn’t look far to observe performance well below “mixed reviews.” Illinois literally has no central system for scheduling appointments. Citizens have to call or email one site at a time. There isn’t even a state list of vaccine sites. You have to hunt for them on a computer.

I say “bravo” to Gov. Eric Holcomb and his team and to our health care providers and volunteers.
