Canadian Hospitals Facing Unprecedented Demand from COVID Vaccine Skeptics for Unvaccinated Blood
Despite no scientific justification for using blood from unvaccinated donors, certain individuals have continued to make these requests, leading to further discussion on the matter.
Bioethicist Maxwell Smith from the Rotman Institute of Philosophy at Western University claims that much of the origin of this controversial request comes from misinformation about mRNA vaccines.
He emphasizes that inaccurate information about the shots was widespread before any mandates were implemented. People have believed that these shots can change their DNA or cause harm to them, leading some to think that unvaccinated blood is safer.
In response, The Ottawa Hospital and Alberta Health Services' Blood and Marrow Transplant Program stated that they hadn't encountered such requests. However, Smith believes it's essential to tread carefully in these cases to avoid giving validity to the request.
At the end of the day, it's important to remember to stay informed with the latest facts, research and science-based updates regarding any new vaccine mandates.
