Doctors Demand Flu Vaccines for Detained Migrants



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Marie DeLuca, Emergency Medicine Physician, with Doctors for Camp Closure.


Days after ProPublica published a horrific video of an immigrant teenager dying of the flu through neglect in a detention center, doctors at the California-Mexico border were arrested for demanding they be allowed to vaccinate detainees.

The Guardian reported that “Licensed physicians arrived at the Chula Vista border patrol station in San Ysidro [, California] prepared to operate a free flu clinic for the detained migrants, but CBP would not let them inside, claiming it was not ‘feasible’ to provide the medical care.”
