It's brilliant of Sangamon County public health officials to let 65-plusers get vaccinated if they bring an 85-pluser with them, and after their vaccines wait together the required 15 minutes. They'll become linked for life. It's like the driver's ed rules that require teenagers to spend so many hours of behind-the-wheel training with their parents – more time than they've spent together for years. Next they should open up vaccines to anybody who brings in an oldster, or any unhealthy person. How about any wealthy country can get vaccinated if it brings a poor country with it? Give peace a shot. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
