He and his spouse had been knowledgeable by Johns Hopkins that each he and any potential donor can be required to be vaccinated in opposition to COVID to be eligible for a transplant. The said deadline is Jan. 1, lower than a month away.
Scott and his spouse have gotten three of his docs to jot down a letter of exemption to be able to preserve him on the listing with Johns Hopkins. Just a few of his docs agree that there isn’t any good cause for the mandate for such a process and a few of the docs themselves aren’t vaccinated, nor plan to be anytime quickly.
Nearly two years in the past, Scott was accepted into the Robert Wooden Johnson kidney transplant staff. They as-of-yet haven’t put the identical mandate into place, however the Pearson’s are fearful.
