WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A patient waiting for a heart transplant in the US city of Boston has been barred from undergoing surgery for failing to get the corona vaccine.

According to international media reports, the patient’s father David Ferguson said that his 31-year-old son is on the verge of death waiting for a heart transplant. He has refused to undergo corona vaccination in the hospital as it is against its basic principles.

“Hospital staff are pressuring my son to be vaccinated and if he does not get vaccinated, they will remove him from the list of patients waiting for a heart transplant,” he said.

A spokesman for Boston’s Bergham and Women’s Hospital, meanwhile, confirmed the patient’s refusal to accept a heart transplant, saying that corona vaccination must be completed for any type of operation or organ transplant.

The spokesman added that we have all the vaccines recommended by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) including code 19.

“We want the transplant candidates to make the operation a success as well as to rehabilitate the patient as soon as possible, as the human immune system weakens after such a major surgery,” he said.

Arthur Kaplan, a medical expert at New York University, told the media that any transplant destroys your immune system and then the corona virus can infect you, which is why non-vaccinated people are barred from transplanting. is being done.
