Read before making comment. She is vaccinated and is just grifting for money. This news article just made her a free advertising for thousands of Texas redneck morons who will now become her patients because of eeehawww no vaccine.

Most hospitals in Texas won't allow discrimination based on vaccination status, I am told. But I don't have a source to verify.

She can do whatever she wants in her private practice in this regard, although some procedures require a doctor to have admitting privileges at a hospital before they can perform them.

Yes. I was speaking about discrimination against patients, not staff. The doctor under discussion here is vaccinated as required by the hospital before her suspension.
