Highlights of August 19, 2021 Meeting
                          Our speaker was Dr. Williams who was introduced by Laura Charles who is heading our Vaccine
                           Committee.  Dr. Williams provided information on Covid 19 and on the closing of Tyler Hospital.
                           He provided the following information.  Those individuals that have not received the vaccine for covid
                           4 out of 100 will get Covid and 1.5 percent  of 100 will die.  Covid is 10x more contagious than the flu
                           Those  who have the vaccine 4 out of 10,000 will get a mild case of covid and 1.5% of a million will die.
                            He explained  that the mutations are not like the flu.  Therefore, continual yearly shots may not be
                            needed.    Boosters are a good thing to help with the Delta variant.
                            Regarding the closure of Tyler Hospital in Wyoming, he stated the ER will probably remain open    and labs  and testing will continue                                to take place.  This may prevent other physicians from locating in our area.  Doctors will no longer be able to treat patients when                                        hospitalized, which is a bad thing for the area.
