Following receipt of the Guidance Statement from the MCNZ and DCNZ we wrote back to the Medical Council, specifically addressing Dr Curtis Walker, the Chairperson, asking for clarification about the statements in the Guidance, particularly as to what “anti–vaccination” entails.
We suggest that evaluation of risks and benefits are part of the doctor-patient discussion. NZDSOS posed ten specific questions and provide scientific references to our concerns and ask for an urgent response.
We did not hear back.
A copy of this letter was also sent to Chris James, Group Manager of Medsafe.
