Christine Walker,

I am so sorry for your loss! I agree with you that both of your parents should have received the vaccine at the earliest possible time, although as a physician at Stanford I did receive my first my dose until 12/26/2020, which probably would have been too late for your father. Still, my sincere condolences.
