A B.C. doctor says he’s seeing an increase in patients asking for a letter that exempts them from the COVID-19 vaccine. However, there are very few legitimate reasons why people shouldn’t be vaccinated.
As the criteria is so limited, being asked to write a medical exemption letter for a patient who doesn’t meet the criteria amounts to fraud.
“Fraud is a crime. A doctor can be charged, fined, and potentially lose their license to practice medicine for fraud,” wrote the B.C doctor. The doctor also discussed vaccine safety, stating that COVID-19 vaccines are 94-per-cent effective in preventing severe COVID-19 hospitalizations and death. Which is far better than most medications and treatments that doctors give to patients.
The health centre will continue to see all patients, vaccinated or not, though he added that unvaccinated patients will be seen towards the end of the day.
This is not to be deemed as a punishment, but it“ensures they are not in the building when potentially other patients, such as children, are also in the clinic, but it is primarily meant to protect the unvaccinated.”
He ended the note with his continued hope that everyone will get vaccinated. Originally sourced by: https://globalnews.ca
