Sheila Annette Lewis is an Alberta woman with a chronic disease. She brought an application to the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, asking that the court uphold her Charter-protected right to conscience, bodily autonomy, and freedom to choose without coercion after being denied a life-saving transplant.
There is no written COVID vaccination policy by either AHS or the transplant team. Ms. Lewis was only verbally told by her doctors in November 2021 that AHS required proof of vaccination for transplant candidates.
That’s why we launched a petition, calling on Health Minister Jason Copping to rein in these doctors and their made-up vaccine policy. You can sign the petition right here.
