The controversies involving the covid vaccine continue. The latest news might upset some of you out there. Check out what happened below.

Daily Wire recently revealed that the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) deactivated a 23-year-old woman from the transplant list.

They noted that she had been waiting since June 2018 on dialysis for a lifesaving kidney transplant because she isn’t vaccinated against covid. The woman, Codie Samuelson, reportedly has six months to get listed for the transplant at another hospital or be removed entirely.

The publication notes that “Samuelson was born with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) and diagnosed at two months old with end-stage kidney failure. Samuelson’s father was the first to give her a kidney, but her body rejected it; it was the kidney from her mother that took, ultimately lasting her 18 years.”

It’s been also revealed that three and a half years ago, Samuelson’s body began rejecting that kidney.”

Samuelson has been on dialysis three times a week since then.

“Though she is considered high-risk for covid, Samuelson decided not to get the vaccine based on the advice of three of her nurses and her own medical concerns.”

CNN Health posted an interesting article about an individual who received the second gift of life. Check out the notes below.
The article begins by saying that ‘Double-masking, staying at home nearly 24/7 and rarely seeing people beyond his wife are still the way of life for kidney transplant recipient Andrew Linder, even after many in the United States are living as the pandemic has ended.”

The article also mentioned the fact that the health officials are recommending third and even fourth shots to boost Covid-19 resistance for people with certain conditions, but that hasn’t eased the fears of some immunocompromised people.
