EL CENTRO –Roy Dorantes says he is prepared to file suit against the city, El Centro Regional Medical Center and hospital CEO Dr. Adolphe Edward over public comments the latter made that the local filmmaker believes mischaracterized the circumstances under which he received the COVID-19 vaccine a week ago and thus damaged his reputation.

Dorantes said a letter of intent will be delivered to the three parties today demanding a public retraction and apology from Edward over comments he made during Thursday’s COVID-19 press conference organized by the Imperial County Public Health Department.
