🇨🇾🇩🇪@COVID19Up: Hospitals in multiple countries reportedly declined (https://www.newsweek.com/3-year-old-reportedly-denied-heart-treatment-because-parents-were-unvaccinated-1674707) to treat a 3-year-old boy with a serious heart condition because his parents weren’t vaccinated against COVID-19.
Hospitals have faced criticism for prioritizing transplants for vaccinated individuals and some health care workers have expressed frustration in having to treat influxes in unvaccinated people. For a boy in Cyprus, the inoculation made it more difficult for his parents to find a hospital to treat him.
The boy was hospitalized due to his heart condition and hospitals in Cyprus were unable to perform the surgery. So, the health ministry arranged for the boy to be flown to Germany for the procedure.
The flight was intended to take place on Thursday (Jan. 27), but at the last minute, the Frankfurt hospital told authorities in Cyprus that the surgery wasn’t going to happen. The hospital reportedly cited the parents’ lack of a COVID-19 vaccine as the reason.
