The Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals in Ohio recently announced that COVID-19 vaccination is required for solid organ transplants.
An unvaccinated Ohio woman with stage 4 liver cancer has had transplant surgery suspended because of this new rule.
The vaccine requirement is justified because it is for the safety of the donor and recipient. The woman refusing the vaccine is an anti-vaxxer.
Patients should have the right to refuse vaccination if they can guarantee staff safety with a negative COVID test, or it's the ultimate coercion.
