The education article, “Case by case, how OPRF faces COVID concerns,” [News, Sept. 15] leaves much to be desired. Twenty-one percent of students are currently unvaccinated, hesitant about the vaccine because of either too much information or not enough “buried underneath other facts.” This mindset seems to be acceptable to the school’s executive director of equity and student success. This “I’m OK, you’re OK” wait-and-see attitude will do nothing to bring about a quantitative change in accepting the vaccine. Oak Park’s Board of Health should provide outreach to this school community. Presenting their knowledge and skill will ensure that the unvaccinated get the informational support needed to accept the vaccine.
