Alabama doctor refuses to treat unvaccinated patients
A doctor from the American state of Alabama launches a harsh statement via Facebook, saying that he is not willing to treat anyone who hasn’t got vaccinated for COVID-19.
The doctor’s name is Jason Valentine, and he’s a physician at at Diagnostic and Medical Clinic Infirmary Health in Mobile.
Dr. Valentine motivated his decision by saying, according to The Independent:
Unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine, and some end up severely ill or dead. I cannot and will not force anyone to take the vaccine, but I also cannot continue to watch my patients suffer and die from an eminently preventable disease.
People didn’t hesitate to react to the Facebook post. The majority of people who saw the post seem to agree with the decision, judging by the number of “likes”.
