‘Willing to Lose Everything’ Unvaccinated Anesthesiologis Escorted From Facility, Places on Upaid Leave

“Dr. Christopher Rake, an anesthesiologist with UCLA, learned this firsthand when he tried to go to work on Monday – even though he has not been vaccinated. He was escorted from UCLA Medical Plaza in Westwood by three people. ‘This is what happens when you stand up for freedom, and you show up to work, willing to work, despite being unvaccinated, this is the price you have to pay sometimes,” he says in the video. “What they don’t realize is that I’m willing to go lose everything…job, paycheck, freedom, even my life, for this cause.’”

Courage and conviction. He knows what is at stake. Dr. Rake has my full respect.
