The ADN’s recent front-page headline story stated that 656 Alaskans tested positive despite COVID-19 vaccination. A more proactive headline would be: “158,000 Alaskans test positive for COVID-19; only 656 of them had been vaccinated.” For the good of your readers, you should be putting out a more positive spin on getting vaccinated. The statistics prove that the vaccine is highly effective.
