Her condition is very serious.

  1. RE: Joshua45 It has nothing to do with how many times one is “vaxxed”. If someone had been treated for cancer, then the vaccination is canceled out. Just that people who get sick will take anything that is out there.

  2. Joshua45, the article states that she has cancer which means that her immune system is probably shot therefore unable to fight off a virus.
    The covid vaccine never claimed to prevent you from getting covid, rather prevent you from getting very sick with it.
    This is a different case because she is immunocompromised

  3. Joshua45, although I agree with your sentiment, that isn’t the issue now. Esther Pollard was there for someone who was literally moiser nefesh for the safety of am yisroel hayoshvim b’eretz yisroel and she needs our tefillos for rachamei shomayim. Jonathan clearly deserves at the very least that we help with a few kapitalech tehillim.
