I think people should be taken care of no matter what decisions they make.

People who hurt themselves doing extreme sports should be given aid. Gun owners who accidentally shoot themselves should be attended to. Mass murderers who get sick in prison should be given medicine.

The number of covid hospitalizations are far greater than those engaging in dangerous activities like extreme sports and the like.

The argument for denying care to the unvaccinated is that they are potentially taking a hospital space (and care) from someone else that needs care- - resources are finite.

I generally agree with you that everyone should receive care, but in the situation where hospital space is limited, I'd favor turning away an unvaccinated Covid case in favor of a person injured doing extreme sports or by getting shot.

Taking vaccination status into account in the normal triage process is more reasonable, but I'm still ethically wary about saying one person deserves treatment more than another. Especially in this case where a lot of people are misinformed or ignorant, rather than just being too evil to deserve treatment.
