The Osterholm Quote

"You can't wait out the clock on this [Delta variant]....You have a choice. Either get vaccinated and be largely protected, or not get vaccinated and run the risk of being hospitalized, in intensive care, or even dying. And even last but not least, because we can't vaccinate our kids right now, we want to bubble those kids as much as we can."
