Alabama Doctor Says He Won't Treat Unvaccinated Patients


Dr. Jason Valentine, a physician at Mobile’s Diagnostic and Medical Clinic Infirmary Health in Alabama, has announced that he will no longer treat unvaccinated patients.

The doctor announced his decision in a now-private or deleted Facebook post in which he posed next to a sign that read “effective Oct. 1, 2021, Dr. Valentine will no longer see patients that are not vaccinated against COVID-19.”

AL.com reports that the doctor claims three unvaccinated patients asked where they could get a vaccine following his post.

“No conspiracy theories, no excuses. Just where do they go,” he said.

The doctor claims that he told patients who asked him about his new policy that he doesn’t want to watch them die from COVID.

“If they asked why, I told them COVID is a miserable way to die and I can’t watch them die like that,” he wrote.

Dr. Valentine also posted a letter that he is sending to his patients online.

“We do not yet have any great treatments for severe disease, but we do have great prevention with vaccines. Unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine, and some end up severely ill or dead. I cannot and will not force anyone to take the vaccine, but I also cannot continue to watch my patients suffer and die from an eminently preventable disease,” the letter said. “Therefore, as of October 1st, 2021, I will no longer see patients that have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. If you wish to keep me as your physician, documentation of your vaccination will suffice. If you wish to choose another physician, we will be happy to transfer your records.”

MedPageToday reports that “only about 36% of Alabama’s population is fully vaccinated against COVID, according to the latest data from the CDC. The state remains among those with the lowest overall vaccination rates in the nation.”

A group called Health Freedom Alabama has blasted Valentine for his decision.

“This is not only a flagrant disregard for the law but is an ethical violation of his Hippocratic oath to do no harm. SHAME on Dr. Valentine! We need to shut his illegal behavior down – NOW!” HFA posted on Facebook. “Act 2021-493 specifically prohibits a business from refusing goods or services based on immunization status. PERIOD.”

Act 2021-493 states that “an entity or individual doing business in this state may not refuse to provide any goods or services, or refuse to allow admission, to a customer based on the customer’s immunization status or lack of documentation that the customer has received an immunization.”

    I live and previously worked in the medical field in the Mobile area. Not sure who he is but I can pretty much guarantee his counterparts won’t be very happy with him. He will be shunned by the rest of the medical community. He might as well move to California now.

    Right. Or people who like to lay in the sun for a tan or just live in a sunny area.
    Skin cancer, Lung Cancer etc. are all horrible ways to die.
    Just another POS.

    Go watch Tony Hincliffe’s new comedy special, “Making Friends”, about Alabama. He pretty much says it all.

    Counterpoint: I refuse to be treated by an Alabama Doctor.

    This is probably the mature, educated way of looking at it – Alternatively I chose the low road and will point out the irony of how ugly this human being is and no I do not mean morally, I mean literally. Similar to an obese lard ass whale with a mask covering their entire face both have much bigger problems than any fing virus.

    Probably for the best. If a doctor cares more about politics than being a good doctor then I would not want to be his patient.

    @Trose, he’s a prog, so, he didn’t take the Hippocratic Oath, he took the Hypocrisy Oath. Quacks do political triage.

    Good on you. Commies aren’t worth the air they breathe.

    Blatant disregard for the hippocratic oath.

    Fuck em. My company stopped serving known leftist vermin. I’m in the middle of searching for tenants now and I’ve already flat out turned away anyone I even suspected of being a Democrat. Death to all vermin.

    I wonder if he will stop seeing patients who smoke, drink, or even speed.
