Doctors who question vaccination are being 'forced out of medicine'

English doctors who may be ambivalent about vaccines are being weeded out of the profession by the 'revalidation' process, where they have to renew their licence to practice

English doctors who may be ambivalent about vaccines are being weeded out of the profession by the 'revalidation' process, where they have to renew their licence to practice.

Around 8,500 doctors have already left the profession after failing to meet the requirements of the process, and this includes doctors specialising in environmental medicine and others who may hold any 'alternative' views.

Under the requirements, doctors must "protect your patients, your colleagues and yourself by being vaccinated against common serious communicable diseases where vaccines are available." Doctors who are unable to demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated are being forced to leave medicine.

One doctor, who wishes to remain anonymous, told WDDTY: "I fear this will drive many doctors who are not sure about the benefits of vaccines undercover or out of the profession. This will also not serve patients' rights to a balanced opinion of vaccines, as the doctor, whatever their opinion, will be now forced to be only positive about vaccines if they want to keep their licence to practice as a doctor and keep working."
