MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin took a New York City restaurant to task after it reportedly refused to allow his family entry due to his 4-year-old daughter’s unvaccinated status.
At the time of this reporting, vaccines are not available for children under the age of 5.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, Mohyeldin wrote, “Today my family was denied eating indoors at a restaurant because, wait for it, my 4 yr old daughter was with me and they dont serve ‘unvaccinated’ people. I tried to explain theres no CDC guideline requiring children under 5 get vaccinated. But the restaurant didn’t care.”
Mohyeldin, pointing to NYC restaurant Buvette, said that he even has a letter from the family’s doctor testifying that the child recently had COVID-19 — but it made no difference to the restaurant’s management.
