TheKiffness asks a great question
Ethical question: Should hospitals have the right to refuse hospital beds to Covid patients who’ve refused to get the vaccine?
(Provided they’ve had the chance to get it, but didn’t) 🤷🏻♂️

Why? The vaccinated do not get hospitalized according to claims by the vaccinated so surely the hospitals should refuse hospital beds to the vaccinated claiming they are seriously ill.

No. But the burden of this pandemic now rests on the unvaccinated. On those who are eligible to get vaccinated, but choose not to. When thousands of people continue to die, when our beleaguered health workers face a continuous trail of death, those choices ceases to exist

We all pay RAF to cover people who don't have insurance, we also pay tax whilst most taxi drivers do not. Yet they allowed on the road.

No, deeply unethical and against the oath they take. pic.twitter.com/lXliDBvNWM

A doctor with a private practice has said that he will be refusing to treat covid patients who refused to get vaccinated, beginning 10/01/2021.https://t.co/Yp5aYsH8Ok

They can only do what's ethically right,this is the first time in my life that a so called illness or virus or whatever that gets dictated to by"governments"and not the medical phaternaty,so next time I need a cancer check up I'll insist that Dr.ramaposa does my consultation.

I have been a First responder for 12 years, I never judge a patient/person on what they have or have not had. If you judge a person on their vax/drunk or obese status, you can not preach eqaulity or freedom.

This for me is principle. So are we also excluding smokers, drinkers, junkies, hiv etc etc ? Poor compliance diabetics ? They were looking for it. Cmon people…..

Hypocratic oath "First do no harm" (Latin: Primum non nocere) is a part of the original Hippocratic oath.
Another equivalent phrase is found in Epidemics, Book I, of the Hippocratic school: "Practice two things in your dealings with disease: either help or do not harm the patient

Accidently hit yes but meant no. They shouldn't deny anyone. If the hospital's aren't ready by now then that is unethical.

You’re struggling to understand why some people are vaccine hesitant. The “let me help you” megathread:
Imagine you’re a normal person. The year is 2016. Rightly or wrongly, you believe most of what you see in the media.
