I am, (name/or a Letter Carrier), who delivers for the U.S. Postal Service in one of the many communities in Massachusetts. The Governor is preventing me, as well as my sisters and brothers from the opportunity to receive one of the COVID-19 vaccines. We have been patiently waiting to be placed on that list, which has already been recommended by the CDC, yet other groups and organizations are now leapfrogging over postal workers who have bravely and diligently worked over the past year, and never stopped delivering service to our Massachusetts customers at the risk of their own health and well-being.
Please tell the Governor to do the right thing, and afford Letter Carriers the opportunity to protect themselves, their families, and their customers by placing us on the list to be vaccinated today!
I am a, (family member, friend, and customer, constituent), who is contacting the Governor’s office to express my disappointment that Letter Carriers in Massachusetts are being unfairly prevented from receiving one of the COVID-19 vaccines. For over one-year these men and women have continued to serve all the communities in this Commonwealth, in the midst of this global pandemic. These Postal Workers have been patiently waiting to be placed on that list, which has already been recommended by the CDC, yet other groups and organizations are now leapfrogging over them while they continue to put their own health and well-being on the line for their customers every day!
Please tell the Governor to do the right thing, and afford our Letter Carriers the opportunity to protect themselves, their families, and the communities they serve, by placing them on the list to be vaccinated today!
