Vaccines, seat belts

Watching and reading about COVID-19 vaccination issues in Elkhart County reminds me of the federal automobile seat belt laws that were passed in the 1980s. At that time, I certainly didn’t want to wear a seat belt when I was riding or driving a car. Now, 35 to 40 years later, I automatically put my seat belt on. I know I am better protected in case of an accident with it on. We have even gone a step further and now have air bags and child-restraint seats. These required safety devices are designed to protect everyone that is in an automobile accident. Even though the law passed at the time was unpopular, it was a law meant for the safety of the public.
