Rationing health care should be a scary side effect for the unvaccinated
A few weeks ago, I met several friends from my MBA in Health Administration program for brunch. We have stayed close since graduating and talk regularly. It took only a few minutes before we were engaged in a conversation about unvaccinated patients, rationing of care and ethical issues.
Should unvaccinated COVID-19 patients be placed at the back of the line to receive care?
At this point it is evident that unvaccinated individuals have made a choice to forgo getting the shot. Mass vaccination sites shuttered in June due to a decline in demand and walk-in appointments are available at local pharmacies like Walgreens. Eighteen months into the pandemic, and nearly a year since vaccinations became available, nobody outside the scientific community — not even Nikki Minaj — is still “doing their research.”
