Doctor Says She Will No Longer Treat Patients That Are Unvaccinated

Videos by OutKick

Dr. Linda Maraccini is a South Florida physician vehemently taking a stance against unvaccinated patients — bypassing a priority for personal choice, and in favor of coercion to get the shot.

“I understand that people are free to choose, but to me, it’s a problem when it affects other people,” said Marraccini, in an interview with NBC. “When it comes to the safety of others, when it comes to the fact that it’s a global health problem and community health problem, at this point, I really say that this is where it draws the line in the sand for me.”

Dr. Maraccini added, “There’s been millions of deaths globally so that’s not something to ignore. People are getting to where everybody knows somebody that died from COVID. This is a problem that really everyone needs to help out with and it’s affecting our collective communal health.”

Critics have spoken out against Dr. Maraccini for taking a position that conflicts with the Hippocratic Oath among doctors: To always treat the sick, devoid of any bias.

“The Hippocratic Oath is very science-based,” claims the doctor. “I am following the science. I’m applying this to the benefit of the sick. Responsibility has to do with each individual. This is a global health issue, and everyone owns part of that responsibility.”

News of Maraccini’s refusal of service adds to the list of privileges stemming from disputes between vaccinated and the unvaccinated. With several of the nation’s key industries militantly in favor of mandatory vaccination, public opinion continues to skew toward exclusively servicing the vaccinated side.

Though vaccination remains the general recommendation for at-risk individuals when it comes to COVID, status of inoculation has exceeded recommendation and turned into an access pass for common living. Now, it is also a determinant in the discussion over citizens’ access to medical attention.

More than 60 percent of Florida has received a single dose of the vaccine.

  1. As I have said all along this whole thing is political not about health or the good doctor would take care of any person in need does she feel the same way about folks not vaccinated against anti biotic resistant TB, hepatitis, influenza, mumps, measles, diphtheria or just this covid thing we all know the answer shameful hypocrite .

    • Bingo. That’s why you hear so many referring to them as “the jab”, not a vaccine. The more I’ve read I’ve found that history has shown you can’t “vaccinate” against a cold virus (coronavirus) because it changes/mutates so often. To get around that fact of nature they’ve engineered this shot VERY differently than a traditional vaccine, which introduces a small amount of a dead virus into your system so your body can recognize it and fight it without suffering the impacts. That approach provides immunity against a single virus, but not against 100,000+ mutations of that virus like a coronavirus generates. That’s why so many are highly skeptical of this jab. This Covid-19 “vaccination” approach is not a proven approach with years of studies showing safety or efficacy like all other vaccines must spend 15 years proving before release to the public. In short, they have no idea what problems this shot will cause down people the road, so it makes you wonder WHY they’re pushing it so hard?

  2. Too bad reporters didn’t ask her about the Israeli study showing the virus skyrocketing in a country where most people are vaccinated. I wonder if once we have all the data and find that the vaccinated are the ones responsible for spread of variants if she’ll be okay with doctors refusing her patients, her loved ones and herself care because they’re vaccinated? I’m
    Sure THEN it will be unethical.

  3. The vaccination rate in Israel is about 80% of the population. The death rate from covid is about .0079% of the population. Deaths are 79.8/100,000 of the population.
    The vaccination rate in the USA is about 53% of the population. The death rate from covid in the USA is about .02%.of the population. Deaths are 197/100,000 of the population.
    Do those statistics mean anything to you? Israel has a much better survival rate than the USA, We are an educated population. We have over twice the number of deaths from covid as Israel. They have covid and so does the USA. Their survival rate is better. What is the difference between the two countries.?
    My son is an ER physician. He treats all comers so there is no bias. (Incidentally, I do not agree with the physician’s reasoning in the story. She signed up for this.) People come to the ER with covid every night. The overwhelming percentage of those people are unvaccinated. Unfortunately too many of them are too far gone and end up dying. Look at the ICU beds in your local hospitals. Full of covid cases. Do not have a heart attack, stroke or a car accident right now. There will be difficulty for you to be treated in the hospital. Be smart. Be informed. Make a good decision based on results not hearsay.
    I want my life to go on unimpeded by this pandemic. I am a health care worker and I am vaccinated. That does not mean I do not have to be careful. I have seen the rates sky rocket at a local university since the kids have returned to school this last few weeks. I do not have an answer for what is happening but I do know the vaccine is effective and helps prevent you from becoming sick. Obviously you can still come down with the disease. We know that. We also know that vaccinated patients do better with the new variants. I will get the booster soon. Just my two cents worth.
