If you are unvaccinated, the Covid-19/Delta variants are coming for you.

Here are bits of information you want to know:

Your vaccination is being shipped to countries in most need and want it.

Louisiana is at the bottom of the national statistics for people getting vaccinated. Covid-19/Delta is surging in Tangipahoa Parish and Louisiana.

National statistics show that Louisiana is near or at the bottom of most national statistics. Here is where we stack up on a national scale in these categories:

Health care — we are #48 out of the 50 states.

Education — #47.

Economy — #47.

Infrastructure — #47.

Opportunity — #42.

Crime and correction — #49.

Environment — # 50.

Fiscal stability — We are on the bottom (remember our parish and state representatives in Baton Rouge voted against raising your minimum wage.)

That’s enough information about where we stack up nationally.

Let’s not be at or near the bottom of the national statistics of unvaccinated people.
