Regarding “Messenger: From St. Louis to Sedalia, vaccine tourists blaze a trail out west” (March 16): I am already tired of hearing how well Missouri’s balanced coronavirus approach has worked. It is working so well that I have not been able to get a vaccine appointment for my 81-year-old neighbor — unless we want to travel 150 miles.

This is what happens when people in charge don’t have a solid plan. I’m sure when Gov. Mike Parson inoculates his herd of cattle, he does not run through the field in his muck boots chasing the cattle with a syringe; he has a plan. I think the citizens of Missouri deserved a better plan.
