Our View: Vaccinate for 2022
December 30, 2021
The end of 2021 means the COVID-19 pandemic will have lasted nearly two years in Wyoming.
While the first signs of the pandemic didn’t hit the state until March 2020, its impacts were immediate. State basketball championships were canceled, followed by a closure of public buildings and schools as people scrambled to make sense of the disease this novel coronavirus caused.
Now, at the absolute end of 2021, more than 800,000 deaths in the United States have been attributed to COVID-19. It isn’t hard to see a day when that tally hits seven figures. We imagine that day will come in 2022.
