LETTERS: Why are Canada’s younger seniors not valued?

Editor:

India’s COVID vaccinations and protocols are for health caregivers and first responders initially, but the second group includes people over 50 years old.

In many U. S. states, it is age 65 and up. Here in B.C. we put our younger, but still vulnerable, seniors at more risk by vaccinating those 80 and over first.

We have all been told that the most vulnerable should take precedent. Why the age discrepancy? Do we not value our senior population as much as other countries?
