Default Canada: family being evicted from Ronald McDonald House due to vaccine status

B.C. family being evicted from Ronald McDonald House due to vaccine status

A young Kelowna family says it is being evicted from Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Vancouver where their 4-year-old son is fighting leukemia because they don’t have COVID shots.
“My wife Lindsey was crying on the bed,” Austin Furgason told True North on Tuesday night. “I told her, I’m going to go ask the manager about this because this isn’t even real.”
“I said, this couldn’t be real.”
RMH is a charity that provides families with a place to live while their children fight serious illnesses at nearby hospitals. They have locations around the world.

Furgason provided True North with a copy of the policy given to his family by RMH on Monday.
“Beginning January 17, 2022, everyone five years and older who are working, staying or visiting our facilities (both the House at 4567 Heather St. Vancouver and at the Family Room in Surrey Memorial Hospital) must show proof of full vaccination (two doses), in addition to completing our existing screening, unless an Accommodation has been sought and has been explicitly approved and granted by RMHC (Ronald McDonald House Charities) in writing,” it reads.
The notice, signed by Senior Director of Family Services Leslie Louie, adds that families already staying at RMH have until Jan. 31 to get their first COVID shot....

This is clearly the right thing to do. Good for them.

Omicron remains an unknown, but there's a fair amount of empirical evidence that the vaccines reduce the transmissibility of the virus.

Quote:
We evaluated data from 194,362 household members (which represented 92,470 households of 2 to 14 persons per household) of 144,525 health care workers who had been employed during the period from March 2020 through November 2020. The mean ages of the household members and the health care workers were 31 and 44 years, respectively; a majority (>96%) were White. A total of 113,253 health care workers (78.4%) had received at least one dose of either the BNT162b2 (Pfizer–BioNTech) mRNA vaccine or the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (Oxford–AstraZeneca) vaccine, and 36,227 (25.1%) had received a second dose.

The primary outcome was any confirmed case of Covid-19 that occurred between December 8, 2020, and March 3, 2021. We also report results for Covid-19–associated hospitalization. The primary time periods we compared were the unvaccinated period before the first dose and the period beginning 14 days after the health care worker received the first dose.


Cases of Covid-19 were less common among household members of vaccinated health care workers during the period beginning 14 days after the first dose than during the unvaccinated period before the first dose (event rate per 100 person-years, 9.40 before the first dose and 5.93 beginning 14 days after the first dose). After the health care worker’s second dose, the rate in household members was lower still (2.98 cases per 100 person-years).

Well then it's NOT a vaccie, is it?...

From 2017, so we don't have scientists and doctors politically reinventing definitions...

VACCINES: WHAT ARE THEY AND HOW DO THEY PREVENT DISEASE?

Quote:
Vaccines work because of a remarkable property of the human immune system: Once infected with a particular pathogen, your antibodies get to work. “’Memory’ cells develop when you get sick with a new virus so you don’t get the viral infection again,” said Van G. Wilson, PhD, associate dean for research and graduate studies and professor of microbial pathogenesis and immunology at the Texas A&M College of Medicine. “The second infection is dealt with quickly, before you even feel sick.”
This is in direct conflict with what is happening to "vaccinated" people right now...So they're not REALLY "vaccinated"...

one study and an extremely small percentage benefit.
While we all know that in highly vaccinated areas around the world we see cases exploding among the vaccinated.
Vaccine failures/breakthroughs are common.

And Even Facaui, and the head of the CDC, and "Dr" Bill Gate all admit that the vaccines DO NOT stop or slow transmissions.
So there's ZERO% rational reason to expel sick children and their families.

Kicking out the "unvaccinated" is not protecting ANYONE.
It's harming families and CHILDREN that are in need of the help the houses are set up to provide.

It's still bizarre to me that people on the left are HAPPY to instate Medical Apartheid systems just a few years after most angrily declared that health care was a human right for everyone(!). And that UNIVERSAL health is a RIGHT! And most endorsed Chiropractic and various alternative medicines/treatments.

But now they are ready to deny hospital beds, alternative treatments, medical insurance and toss immunocompromised children suffering from cancer into the street. if they don't take a "vaccine" untested on immunocompromised children's already weak immune system.
It's gruesome.

SAME BOAT salt.
All can get it.
So why do you want to throw children with cancer out on the street for not having a vaccine that does NOT stop transmission and might FURTHER compromise their already weak immune systems?
