I am writing to protest against the possible vaccination mandate in Northampton.

One of the reasons my family moved to this valley about 30 years ago was to respect individual differences. We wanted to live in a place where all people could feel safe and be treated kindly.

Medical and philosophical differences are no less worthy of acceptance than differences of race, sex, or sexual preference. Some people have had vaccine-related injuries and should not take an investigational vaccine. There are also doctors who recommend that patients with specific medical conditions avoid it.

People have their reasons. They should not be made to feel like second-class citizens for these reasons and their inherent right to make a medical choice. During this time, the vaccine does not even stop the spread.

A vaccinated person can spread it just as easily as an unvaccinated person. Additionally, hospitals have patients who are fully vaccinated people with COVID.

Yet people certainly have the right to take it. Or not to take it.

Regardless of a person’s choice, dividing society based on race, gender, sexual preferences, or health status promotes hatred, scapegoats and violence. Let’s not lose the beauty we have created here in the Pioneer Valley.
