Man Can’t Get Heart Transplant Because He’s Not Vaccinated Against COVID

BOSTON (CBS) – David Ferguson is speaking out passionately on behalf of his son DJ. He says the 31-year-old is fighting for his life at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and in desperate need of a heart transplant….

…The family says he was at the front of the line to receive a transplant but because he has not received the COVID-19 vaccination he is no longer eligible according to hospital policy. Ferguson says his son refuses to get the shot.

“It’s kind of against his basic principles; he doesn’t believe in it. It’s a policy they are enforcing and so because he won’t get the shot, they took him off the list of a heart transplant,” Ferguson said…

…Dr. Arthur Caplan is Head of Medical Ethics at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. He says being vaccinated is necessary for this type of procedure. “Post any transplant, kidney, heart whatever, your immune system is shut off,” Caplan said. “The flu could kill you, a cold could kill you, COVID could kill you. The organs are scarce, we are not going to distribute them to someone who has a poor chance of living when others who are vaccinated have a better chance post-surgery of surviving.”

This is tragic and avoidable, but for whatever reason, this anti-vaxxer would rather make the choice to die than  have a safe and free vaccine. I just don’t have words for how sad and stupid this is.

    Fuck that moron and good riddance. Too many oxygen thieves who are given attention by our worthless media strut around thinking that their foolish emotions are the equivalent of sound facts and scientific theory.

    It’s not like spare organs grow on trees. There are generally a few tissue type matches for any available hearts, lungs, etc, so choices are made every time about who gets to live or die. This dumb shit saved someone else by giving up his chance.

    One of my aunts was literally picking out her burial plot when she got the word that she had 12 hours to decide if she wanted to receive a pair of lungs.

    My ability to empathize is sorely strained by people like Ferguson. This is the kind of situation that can make even the most bleeding heart types say, “good riddance”.

      This is really sad. I feel sorry for this young man. He didn’t even get a chance to learn more about life. His parents are to blame. They raised him on “basic principles “. What is that?

      I am a bleeding heart type and this is sad.


  4. Politics is not spelled “p-r-i-n-c-i-p-l-e-s” and science is not Santa Claus, you don’t get to “not believe in it”. Father Ferguson is an even bigger moron than his (soon to be dead) fool son.

  5. They honestly and deeply believe that the rules simply do not apply to them, don’t they.

    “I want this, so I naturally deserve this, no matter what someone else says! It’s my RIGHT!”

    Dad, save your anger for the people who convinced your son that the vaccine was evil, not the fucking doctors trying to save his worthless life.

    An interesting dilemma might be, the donated heart belonged to a doctor who performed abortions.

    Having principles is grand. Being willing to die for those principles shows determination. It isn’t like the rules were unknown. Choices have consequences. His dad can express his admiration for his principles and determination on his tombstone.

    Is it now possible that if we ignore them, and their principles, they will go away??

    this is pretty much becoming the mockery we used to say, where we told them that we would hate the most if they ate bleach or drank their own urine, or refused reasonable medical procedures. Now, I am not sure how we should feel about them being willing to do so, and dying because….

    Eagerly and desperately accepting the potential life-saving benefit of one very complex aspect of medical science while defiantly rejecting another much simpler one, aay-dee-oss muchacho.

    “It’s his body. It’s his choice,” Ferguson said.

    So technically it’s not his body ergo it’s not his choice…

    The largest percentage of the population understands that life is made up percentages, every second of every day. And given that we understand that democracy is the best use of dealing with the percentages of life. We also understand that the freedom it provides is choice, whether to do something or not. It is not the freedom to force your choice on everyone else. Your choice is your freedom, I say again. It is not your choice to be able to force your choice on anyone else.

  13. I also want to add my opinion that the hospital policy (Brigham and Women’s/BLI) is wrong, if not illegal. They have a dying patient and they should treat that patient as best they can and as a priority (over others not dying). Between oaths (to give the best care) and laws, that this patient did not get vaxxed should not be germane as the patient is not encumbant by laws or oath to receive the best care. If the patient (massive mental midget or not, poor or wealthy) is next in line/up for treatment, he/she should not be denied the best care.

      I recently read a sad story about a young girl who was scheduled for surgery. “No food the night before”, the doctors said.
      But she wanted her breakfast.
      Her parents could not say no to her.
      On arrival for the surgery the parents stated that they had complied with all the requirements. In other words, they lied and claimed she had not eaten since the night before.
      The child died because of this.
      This situation is not analogous, but my point is that there are reasons for most of the requirements that involve the actual health and welfare of the patients. If this idiot won’t get vaccinated he is an unknown (to me) percentage more likely to die from the effects of the operation. This would not only be deadly to him within an unknown (to me) time after the operation, it would also take the chance of further life away from another patient.
      “We are aggressively pursuing all options,…” said the dad, but the simplest option they are totally ignoring. Get the vax. Is that so hard?

      • It just seems ethically wrong in a case like this (I said seems, because maybe I haven’t thought it out thoroughly) that a hospital isn’t adapting to provide the best care to the patient as the patient presents/is. For some brain-dead twits, political belief is akin to ferverent religious beliefs with the latter traditionally respected in a care plan. The vaccine lessens risk for the patient (and then others), it doesn’t eliminate (risk) so, it seems the disqualification/denial is based on slight odds, not “life or death”. It’s just too easy to say “ha ha moron” (because it is ironic and he is, as is his dad) and leave it at that without also scrutinizing Peter Bent/Boston Lying In/Brigham’s & Women’s (or whatever it’s calling itself these days). I just think the policy is wrong but, it is what it is and given that, the father and son are tools and fools.

        I would jump into discussion/debate mode, but the whole issue is just too grey. You might not want to get me started. Also, too.
