Hospital refuses to perform kidney transplant on 9-year-old boy because his father is unvaccinated

A 9-year-old boy is being denied a kidney transplant by a hospital because his father is not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Tanner Donaldson is a regular third-grader who loves to play basketball and lacrosse. However, Tanner was born with one kidney, and it only functions between 18-20% of maximum capacity.

"He was born with a birth defect called posterior urethral valves. It's a valve that blocks urine from exiting the body," Tanner's father, Dane Donaldson, told WEWS-TV.

The family is managing Tanner's condition right now, but at some point, he will need a kidney transplant. In 2018, both of Tanner's parents were found to be perfect donor matches to give a kidney to their son.

The family wanted to put off having the surgery as long as possible since transplanted kidneys from a live donor only last an average of 20 years.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Now, the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital is refusing to perform the operation because the father is unvaccinated. The Donaldsons received a letter from the hospital in November notifying them that all donors and organ recipients must be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to get a transplant surgery.

Donaldson doesn't want to get the COVID-19 vaccine because of religious reasons, and because he is concerned with side effects.

"It was a little bit thrown down our throat. I mean, it was everywhere we turned," Donaldson said of the COVID-19 vaccine. "I couldn't shop at a grocery store without hearing it over the loudspeaker. So the more it became the more just studying it, what's involved in it, is there informed consent? Do I get to see the ingredient list?"

Plus, Donaldson was already infected with COVID, and so he believes he has immunity from his prior infection.

Donaldson believes that the hospital is being hypocritical since the hospital will do transplants of organs from a deceased person who isn't vaccinated.

Donaldson told the Epoch Times, "I asked them in that car accident victim, would you vaccinate him on the way to the hospital to rip his kidney out, and they said, 'No.'"

"A live donor is the best donor for kidneys, but they’ll take a kidney from a deceased person not vaccinated, it makes no sense," Donaldson explained.

Donaldson said he is willing to sign a waiver freeing the hospital of any liability should he or Tanner get infected with COVID-19, but the hospital won't budge on its vaccine mandate.

The father hopes that the Cleveland Clinic will change its policy or give him an exception.

"I don't know what we do today. You know, I gotta think somewhere out there, that cooler heads would prevail and we could, you know, I'd love it still to be at the Clinic and us come around and have some type of dialogue and say, ‘Okay, you know, let's look at your case,'" Donaldson stated. "We're trying to put plan B in place. The number one thing I can do is keep him as healthy as possible and I can remain and keep my health the best I can. But it's stressful. There's no doubt about it. You know, it just is."

Tanner, who was born at the Cleveland Clinic and has received treatment there for all nine years of his life, will likely need to go to another hospital to receive the procedure.

The Cleveland Clinic informed WEWS-TV that they can't comment on individual cases, but issued a statement:

In 2021, Cleveland Clinic developed COVID-19 safety protocols for transplantation and living donation to minimize the risks of possible COVID-19 exposure during the pandemic.

At this time, Cleveland Clinic's safety protocols for solid organ transplantation require COVID-19 vaccination to be an active transplant candidate or living donor. Vaccination is particularly important in these patients for their safety.

Living donation for organ transplantation has been a life-saving treatment, but it is not without risks to the donor. For the living donor, reducing the risk of a COVID-19 infection around the time of their surgery and recovery is crucial. Individuals who are actively infected with COVID-19 have a much higher rate of complications during and after surgery, even if the infection is asymptomatic. We continually strive to minimize risk to our living donors, and vaccination is an important component to ensure the safest approach and optimal outcomes for donors.

For the transplant candidate, in addition to a major operation, medications taken after an organ transplant weaken a person’s immune response. Serious complications of COVID-19 are most likely to develop in those individuals who have weakened immune systems, as their body has a reduced ability to fight and recover from infections. The FDA-authorized vaccines have been determined to be safe and effective and are the best way to prevent severe illness and death from COVID-19, especially when administered prior to transplantation.

The health and safety of our patients is our top priority. As the pandemic evolves, we will continue to evaluate our safety protocols.

Horowitz: The very concerning data from Scotland

“The vaccines are incredibly safe. They protect us against Omicron; they protect us against Delta; they protect us against COVID." Those were the words of fully vaccinated CDC Director Rochelle Walensky while testifying before the Senate Health Committee with two masks on her face on Jan. 11.

Scottish data shows that the COVID-19 age-standardized case rate is highest among the two-dose vaccinated and lowest among unvaccinated! It further shows this trend of negative efficacy for the double-vaccinated persisting for hospitalizations and deaths. Something is very wrong here, and together with other data points, it raises concerning questions about the negative effect of waning antibodies, constant boosting, and the consequences of a leaky vaccine with narrow-spectrum suboptimal antibodies against an ever-evolving virus.

Every Wednesday, Public Health Scotland (PHS) has been publishing a weekly report on COVID data juxtaposed to vaccination rates. Table 14 of this week’s “Public Health Scotland COVID-19 & Winter Statistical Report” lays bare in plain English (and math) a rate of negative efficacy for the vaccine:

As you can see, while the overall Omicron wave seems to be receding in Scotland, age-standardized case rates per 100,000 people were the lowest in the unvaccinated cohort every week for the past four weeks. Thus, it’s not just the fact that the unvaccinated accounted for only 11.5% of cases the past two weeks, but even adjusted for age-stratified vaccination rates (PHS already does the math for you) the unvaccinated had the lowest infection rate out of the four cohorts – especially during the peak of Omicron. Furthermore, we see that even the triple-vaccinated clearly have no efficacy against infection, although they have some degree less negative efficacy than the double-vaccinated.

Here is a linear presentation of the depth of the Omicron wave by vaccination status, where you can see that the unvaccinated had the shallowest wave:

This also coincides with the latest data from the U.K. Health Security Agency of the entire United Kingdom. This data now shows higher rates of infection among the triple-vaccinated in all but the youngest people.

Triple-Jabbed Over-30s Have Higher Infection Rates Than the Unvaccinated, UKHSA Data Show\u00a0\
— Andrew Bostom, MD, MS (@Andrew Bostom, MD, MS) 1642700314

Full stop right here. Any public policy measure – from vaccine passports to discrimination – cannot be justified under the science, even if one’s conscience is OK with apartheid. In fact, clearly this shows that, especially with Omicron, the vaccinated are the super-spreaders. Before we get to hospitalizations and deaths, the notion that the unvaccinated are somehow responsible for the continued spread of this virus is completely contradicted by the data. Some might suggest without evidence that the unvaccinated possibly have a higher rate of prior infection; however, Omicron seems to attack even those who already had previous versions of SARS-CoV-2.

Now onto hospitalizations and deaths. While the vaccines clearly provided some degree of protection for some people for several months against severe illness (while possibly causing even more spread), the Scottish data paints a concerning picture of the long-term consequences of the mass vaccination. People like Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche have been warning that if you mass-vaccinate with a leaky, narrow-spectrum (only recognizes spike protein) vaccine in middle of a raging pandemic, the virus would get more virulent over time.

This concern manifests itself at two time periods when the antibodies are “sub-optimal.” There is a period of a few weeks after the jab when the antibodies are strong enough to bind but not strong enough to neutralize, and then at the back end (estimated at four to six months for the original shot, but likely much shorter for the booster), a period when they wane. The media and public health tyrants like to focus your attention on a snapshot of time, but ignore the totality of circumstances that the shots are creating negative efficacy before and after, while using accounting gimmicks to mask the problem.

Remember how the lockdowns were hailed as a success for a number of countries that initially did well, while Sweden now has the lowest rate of excess mortality in Europe in 2021?

\u201cSweden now has a lower death rate than countries that went down the full lockdown route, including the UK, France, Spain and Italy\u2026 Economic recovery has been brisk\u2026 Sweden has not caused damage to the life chances of its children.\u201d\u00a0\u2026
— Prof. Freedom (@Prof. Freedom) 1641237709

Just as with lockdowns, the mass vaccination needs to be judged after all nine innings of the ballgame.

With that said, let’s take a look at tables 15 and 16 – the acute COVID hospitalization and death rates, respectively:

What is clearly evident both from the hospitalizations and deaths is that the double-vaccinated are now worse off per capita even against critical illness, and that pattern appears to be accelerating. Again, this evidently shows a pattern of negative efficacy even against critical illness over time as the shots wear off, increasingly quickly with Omicron. Why is there no desire to study the source of this negative efficacy and whether the fact that the vaccine is non-sterilizing, wanes quickly with sub-optimal antibodies, is narrow-spectrum, and is increasingly out of synch with the changing virus is going to make the pandemic worse in the long run?

Some will look at the chart and conclude that the boosters are amazing. But first it’s important to recognize that even the boosters don’t stop transmission at all even in the short run, and then, based on the latest hospitalization data, appear to wane just like the original shots. Relatedly, you will notice a pattern: the unvaccinated and two-dose cohorts always appear worse and the one-shot and three-shot cohorts always appear better. This is where the most important part of the data set comes into play.

You see, all cases during the first 21 days after the first shot are counted in the “unvaccinated” cohort, while the first 14 days after one receives the 3rd shot is counted among the two-dose cohort. See the definitions from Appendix 6 of the report.

We know from numerous studies (see here and here) that people are actually the most vulnerable to COVID during the first few weeks on the upswing of the antibodies, when T cells are likely suppressed. This is why the health departments smartly count them in the unvaccinated pile. Hence, for all these months, all the cases and deaths from those made more vulnerable from the first shot – which is caused by the mass vaccination, not the unvaccinated – are counted against the unvaccinated. Over time, as the shots waned on the back end, the truth became evident. Now they are starting the cycle all over again by making the two-dose group look even worse than they are by dumping all of the cases caused by the initial take-up from the third dose into the cohort of double-vaccinated.

It’s the ultimate pandemic Ponzi scheme. Just wait another two months and see what the fourth-shot group looks like relative to the triple-dosers, as the immediate vaccination causes an even greater spike in cases. In other words, you have to look in totality where we are headed rather than manipulating a snapshot of time.

What this report shows is that just 18.5% of the hospitalizations in Scotland were unvaccinated, but even that number includes numerous people within 21 days of the first shot, which is clearly a very vulnerable time. It’s akin to telling someone in a foxhole to run across the field of fire to get to a bunker that might be safer, but he runs an even higher risk of getting cut down before reaching the bunker. Then, after a few hours, the bunker will get overrun by the enemy and you have to run through a new field of fire to get to the next bunker.

Likewise, when a therapeutic lowers symptom severity through immune suppression, it’s a flash in the pan. Eventually, that mechanism of action will come back to bite you in the proverbial arm. And this is even before we get to the long-term concern that multiple shots will create permanent immune suppression by creating original antigenic sin, a position now articulated by the European Medicines Agency and top Israeli immunologists.

Just how prominent is the infection rate within the first 14-21 days of getting the shot, thereby completely distorting the epidemiological data and ultimate perception of efficacy of the shots? Although we don’t have data from the U.K. or U.S. on the timing of infection relative to vaccination period, Alberta, Canada evidently publishes some of that data. According to U.K. researcher Joel Smalley, who screenshotted the chart from the Alberta government’s website before it was taken down, roughly 40% of cases, 47.6% of hospitalizations, and 56% of deaths among the vaccinated occurred within 14 days of vaccination! Here is the graphical presentation that was on the website, according to Smalley. The top chart represents cases, the middle is hospitalizations, and the bottom is deaths:

Alberta, like many governments, counts the first 14 days as unvaccinated. In Scotland, they are counting the first 21 days after the first dose as unvaccinated and 14 days following subsequent doses in the cohort of the previous numbered dose. Obviously, we can’t mix the Alberta time-based data with the overall Scottish data, but common sense dictates that a bunch of cases from the immune suppression period of the initial vaccination are being blamed on the unvaccinated, and the perception of the booster shots is also likely being ameliorated at the expense of the double-jabbed cohort. For example, in Alberta, it appears that roughly 60% of the hospitalizations in the vaxxed cohort got COVID within 21 days of the shot, which in Scotland, would all be counted as unvaccinated cases. Thus, they deliberately chose the cutoff date for designation of vax status after the inflection point where they see the most COVID cases post-vax!

This deep dive into the data from Scotland should serve as a Rosetta stone for the macro observations we have seen from day one. We are seeing the most vaccinated nations and states being hammered with more cases than ever in a way that defies anything we should expect to see from a safe and effective vaccine. Here are just a few of the many examples:

I mean. When you compare case rates and vax rates for the past 3 weeks you'd think that the line wouldn't look like this. But it does. That trend line should be going in the other

Dr. Fauci recently told Bloomberg news that “there are some inherent ‘non-believers’ that no matter what you say, they give you a real problem.” He’s right. It takes a true religious level of adherence – like a believer – to continue supporting his narrative, despite the plain facts before our every eyes.

MSNBC anchor rages over NYC restaurant's policy of not letting in family over unvaccinated 4-year-old daughter

MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin took a New York City restaurant to task after it reportedly refused to allow his family entry due to his 4-year-old daughter's unvaccinated status.

At the time of this reporting, vaccines are not available for children under the age of 5.

What are the details?

In a lengthy Twitter thread, Mohyeldin wrote, "Today my family was denied eating indoors at a restaurant because, wait for it, my 4 yr old daughter was with me and they dont serve ‘unvaccinated’ people. I tried to explain theres no CDC guideline requiring children under 5 get vaccinated. But the restaurant didn’t care."

— Ayman (@Ayman) 1641331323

Mohyeldin, pointing to NYC restaurant Buvette, said that he even has a letter from the family's doctor testifying that the child recently had COVID-19 — but it made no difference to the restaurant's management.

"Don’t get me wrong, restaurants have the right to apply their own health standards but at least ground them in public health policies and science," he continued. "Restaurants have suffered so much in this pandemic so its sad that when you try and help by dining out that you get turned away. And just to be clear, everyone else with me was vaccinated, boosted and/or had covid (me). My 4 yr old daughter has a letter from her doctor stating she recently had covid. But they didn’t care and only offered us to sit outside even though they were seating customers indoors."

During a later exchange with a Twitter user, Mohyeldin argued, "If public health officials want to shut down restaurants to avoid the spread & hospitalizations, thats their call. But why is a restaurant banning unvaxxed kids when I literally cant get her vaxxed. Where is the science and data that backs up that decision? Or is that irrelevant?"

Twitter user Ryan Glasspiegel responded, "Is the vaccine even allowed for children under 5 yet?"

Mohyeldin responded, "It's not. that's exactly the point I was trying to make. What science, data, or public healthy policy or guideline is this grounded in? I couldn't even get my 4 year old vaccinated if I wanted. Everyone else with me was vaxxed and boosted."

The restaurant did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Jordan Peterson blasts COVID vaccine mandates: 'F***ing leave me alone!'

Famed psychologist and author Jordan Peterson blasted the government's hysteria over COVID-19 vaccines.

What are the details?

In an interview with Dave Rubin, Peterson said that he believes the U.S. is quickly moving to a state of totalitarianism due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"The thing that surprised me the most, probably, was how rapidly we stampeded to imitate a totalitarian state in the immediate aftermath of the release of COVID," he said. "You know, if you think it through a little bit, no one really knew how serious the virus was going to be, and so it was an unknown threat. And so you could imagine a herd of animals or a school of fish, for that matter, because this kind of phenomena is universal throughout the animal kingdom."

He continued, "The cost of overreacting to a threat is generally minimal compared to under-reacting to a real threat. Overreacting to a hypothetical threat is cheap compared to under-reacting to an actual threat, because if you under-react, you could die, whereas if you overreact, you generally just get fired for a minute."

Peterson then explained that a panicky herd mentality is often the biggest threat to humanity.

"So a herd will stampede because the most neurotic member of the herd jumps first, and then they'll instantly follow them," he said. "And that's kind of what we did in the early stages of the pandemic. The Chinese acted first — now, unfortunately they are a totalitarian state — and we all followed. And that's excusable in some sense because we didn't know what sort of threat we were facing."

Peterson added that what soon followed could only be chalked up to what he said is a breakdown of rights.

"My father isn't vaccinated; he decided not to, partly because they were telling him he had to," he explained. "In any case, it's extraordinarily annoying to see this happening, and to then find out that there's nothing behind it except the most instrumental and cowardly random polling is extremely disheartening and also maddening and also angering; all of those things at once."

Peterson later lamented vaccine mandates.

"You know, Canadians who aren't vaccinated right now cannot leave the country," he snapped. "Like, what the hell? Why is that? And I'm — look, I got vaccinated, and people took me to task for that, and I thought, 'All right, I'll get the damn vaccine.' Here's the deal, guys: I'll get the vaccine; you f***ing leave me alone!"

“Did that work? No. So, stupid me, you know?" he groused. “That's how I feel about it. It's like, well, now I have to get tested for COVID when I come back into Canada. I have to get tested before I leave Canada. Now, that might be — the latter issue, that's an issue with the Americans, so that's outside of the Canadian purview, but the restrictions to get back into Canada are even more stringent. It's like, why did I get the vaccine then if you're not going to leave me alone?"

Country superstar Travis Tritt blasts 'wing nut cancel culture' after singing 'Star-Spangled Banner' during Braves game: 'Thanks for allowing me to pay tribute to America'

Country legend Travis Tritt lashed out at "wing nut cancel culture" after social media users and news outlets alike appeared to question why Tritt would perform at Game 6 of the MLB's National League Championship Series on Saturday night after going viral for canceling shows at venues requiring COVID-19 vaccines.

What are the details?

Early Sunday morning, Tritt tweeted, "So the wing nut cancel culture tried to pressure the Atlanta Braves into forcing me not to sing the National Anthem at Game 6 of the NLCS. I'm so thankful that the @braves did not cave to this pressure and refused to be bullied. Thanks for allowing me to pay tribute to America."

So the wing nut cancel culture tried to pressure the Atlanta Braves into forcing me not to sing the National Anthem…

— Travis Tritt (@Travistritt) 1635048852.0

Earlier on Saturday, a USA Today report questioned the move: "On the night of one of their most important game [sic] in 20-plus years, the Atlanta Braves have chosen to wade knee-deep into the culture war of the moment and bring COVID-19 politics into the ballpark. ... [F]or the Braves to choose Tritt as the performer for this particular game, after this particular week, can only be interpreted as a middle finger to the segment of its fan base that stands on the side of science and an endorsement of the kind of misinformation that keeps the COVID-19 pandemic going strong."

A report from Fansided added, "By allowing Tritt to sing for their organization, the Braves are sending the wrong message for MLB — a league whose success is predicated on a successful COVID-19 policy and heavy reliance on the COVID-19 vaccine."

A Washington Post report added, "The Braves chose Tritt because he is a big fan of the team. Most teams bring out their most high-profile fans this time of year. But the choice is somewhat puzzling because it seems to court unnecessary controversy, given Tritt's stance against vaccination mandates."

Travis Tritt Sings National Anthem At NLCS Game 6 In Atlanta

Last week, Tritt raised eyebrows after announcing that he would cancel shows at venues requiring fans to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and more.

“I'm putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated," Tritt said in a widely circulated statement. “Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately. Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause. I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning."

Following the outcry, Tritt told Fox News' Tucker Carlson that he felt compelled to "stand up for freedom" and noted that vaccine mandates only served to divide people.

“[F]reedom for all of those people to be able to go out and do what they enjoy doing and enjoy a concert without being harassed," he explained.

Horowitz: Heavily vaccinated state accounts for 65% of India’s COVID cases after rejecting ivermectin

The Indian state of Kerala has 3% of India's population, and 67% of its inhabitants have at least one vaccination. One would expect Kerala's COVID cases to be so low as to be invisible in a chart of India's very low overall cases. Yet this state of just 33 million people accounted for 65% of all of India's cases on Thursday, and even more in recent weeks. It has essentially been the only state experiencing a surge in recent months. It also happens to be the Indian state that has rejected ivermectin.

I have written several columns on the miracle of Uttar Pradesh, India's largest state, which has essentially eradicated COVID with the universal use of ivermectin. In general, most of India experienced very few COVID cases since the large spring wave because there is a great deal of immunity built up. However, Uttar Pradesh, despite its population of 240 million people, has been averaging fewer than 20 cases over the past few months for its seven-day rolling average.

This is India at large:

Now compare to Uttar Pradesh, which has a flat line rather than just a low churn.

Now let's compare this to the state of Kerala, which has removed ivermectin and other proven therapeutics from its treatment protocol and has gone all in on the ineffective remdesivir.

As you can see, unlike anywhere else in India, Kerala kept experiencing a robust spread for months and has only finally begun to turn the corner. This relatively small state of less than 3% of the Indian population has been responsible for the overwhelming majority of cases for months.

So, let's review the statistics again.

Uttar Pradesh:

  • largest state of 240 million people
  • roughly 20 cases a day
  • 193 active cases — 33% with one dose of vaccine (and near zero when cases were going down in the spring)
  • universal ivermectin use


  • 33 million people
  • 65% of all current cases in India
  • 186,000 active cases
  • 67% with at least one vaccine
  • banned ivermectin

"The protocol clearly says antibiotics like Azithromycin or vitamins are not indicated for COVID-19 patients," said R. Aravind, Head of Infectious Diseases, Thiruvananthapuram Government Medical College, of the Kerala revised protocol in early August. They removed ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine but retained remdesivir as part of the treatment protocol. Well, Kerala's case rate is about 8,000 times greater than that of Uttar Pradesh, which liberally uses ivermectin and focuses on early and preventive treatment. Rather than following the example of Uttar Pradesh, Kerala is increasing restrictions on human freedom. Why treat people when you can just control them?

The lesson for the U.S. is unmistakable. The more we vaccinate, the more cases skyrocket. Florida is reporting that the majority of people coming in for monoclonal antibody treatment are vaccinated, with an even greater percentage of seniors getting sick already having gotten the shots. What this means is that in the coming weeks, the percentage of serious cases among the vaccinated will likely increase to parity with their share of the population, as the immunity wanes. The only choice now is treatment. Unfortunately, the Biden administration is now rationing the monoclonal antibody treatments. Whether these effective (but expensive) treatments are truly in short supply or Biden is just playing political games is yet to be determined, but what is clear is that we need cheap, generic drugs to be used early and often, as in Uttar Pradesh.
