We’ve recently been made aware of a letter to the Your View column titled: Covid here to stay.
We find this letter to be completely unprofessional and disrespectful to patients. The writer of the letter, Dawn Davis, states she is a hospital pharmacist, but upon a google search, she comes back affiliated with Health Partners of Western Ohio. This person does not work for Health Partners. We are now receiving emails concerning this letter, and we would like to set the record straight.
Health Partners of Western Ohio is following the guidelines set by the CDC and backed by science. We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated for Covid-19 as the best line of defense against this pandemic. We are currently vaccinating people ages 12 years old and up for COVID-19. In addition, we recommend wearing face masks, frequent hand washing, and continuing to social distance/quarantine to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Health Partners began vaccinating our patients and the general public in January of this year and are proud that we have administered more than 32,000 vaccines to patients. We believe in the science and are happy to discuss the facts with patients as there is so much misinformation/disinformation out there.
CEO, Health Partners of Western Ohio
