There is a part of process of when there is not enough medical resources for all the patients. At that time they have to do what is known as triage.

Triage

At that point, it is who is most likely to survive, given treatment with the limited resources. They are put in a position of picking and choosing who will get attention first and who (if they are lucky enough) will get medical attention last, if at all.

This is everyone's business, these yoyo's that won't get a vaccine.

The loss of ambulance service means you could have an EMT on site with a heart attack patient that can't get to the hospital or a car wreck with seriously injured patient that can't be transported to the hospital, because all the ambulances are in use, waiting on the hospital to take the present patient in before it can be decontaminated for next use.
