Father Removed from Heart Transplant List for Being Unvaccinated Gets Emergency Pump

The 31-year-old father who was removed from the heart transplant list at a Boston hospital because he refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine has undergone emergency surgery to be fitted with a mechanical heart pump. DJ Ferguson’s family has said he was first on the list to receive the transplant at Brigham and Women’s Hospital — but that he was no longer eligible because of his vaccination status. On Tuesday, the father of two received a mechanical heart pump — called a left ventricular assist device — that should keep him alive for up to five years, according to ABC News.
