It’s a well-kept secret that Mainers only discover when they need access to emergency care: that our emergency medical system is in a serious state of need. From Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the hospitals, and even in long-term care facilities such as nursing homes, a series of compounding issues has been ignited by politically charged Covid-19 vaccine mandates. Mandates that in the end, have helped no one.
The basis of the argument is that having fully vaccinated providers will protect patients and communities, and that is more important than having more staff, with more experience, continuing their careers serving patients and communities. Health Choice Maine believes that lack of emergency medical care and reduced hospital services are much larger threats to the safety of every Mainer.
