Dr. Jason Valentine posted the sign on his door, effective October 1, and says it's already getting results, with more patients asking to be vaccinated.
An Alabama doctor is taking a bold stance in the efforts to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19.
Dr. Jason Valentine, a physician at Mobile’s Diagnostic and Medical Clinic Infirmary Health, posted a photo on his Facebook page showing him posed next to a sign that says “effective Oct. 1, 2021, Dr. Valentine will no longer see patients that are not vaccinated against COVID-19.”
Since posting the sign, Valentine wrote that three unvaccinated patients asked where they could get a vaccine.
“No conspiracy theories, no excuses. Just where do they go,” he added.
Valentine had a blunt answer for those who asked him about his decision.
“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.
