University of Colorado Hospital Denies Kidney Transplant Unless Patient Gets Vaccinated


University of Colorado Hospital is denying a kidney transplant to a woman named Leilani Lutali on the transplant waiting list because Lutali has not taken the Coronavirus vaccine. The hospital is making this patient “inactive” on the kidney transplant waiting list. This outright coercion by the medical industry has alarmed many fair-minded citizens including tipster Israel Anderson who sent NATIONAL FILE this message written by kidney transplant coordinator Katie Hamann. It is shocking.

University of Colorado Health’s Kidney Transplant Coordinator Katie Hamann writes to an unvaccinated person: “The transplant team at University of Colorado Hospital has determined that it is necessary to place you inactive on the waiting list. You will be inactivated on the list for non-compliance by not receiving the COVID vaccine. You will have 30 days to begin the vaccination series. If your decision is to refuse COVID vaccination you will be removed from the kidney transplant list. You will continue to accrue waiting time, but you will not receive a kidney offer while listed inactive. Once you complete the COVID vaccination series you will be reactivated on the kidney transplant list pending any other changes in your health condition. If you have questions or concerns, please call me. Attached is a letter from the united Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). It describes services and information offered to patients by UNOS and the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network.”
