Health Organisation punishes docters after HPV-vaccination boycott!
Rotterdam- State health docters and nurses in the South of Holland, refused to vaccinate girls in the age of 13 to 17 years to vaccinate them with the HPV-vaccine. They refused, because they found there was not enough prove of the effectivity and the change of side affects was to big, says Jan van Eijck, Manager Health organisation in NB.
The National Health-Organisation threatened with dismission, but that seems to be impossible according to the law. Now they’re looking for an other way to punish, sanction these doctors and there assistants. It’s not known what sanctions are now taken.
Within the national organisation for doctors, there were several doctors who refused to vaccinate, says director van Bolderen. He won’t say how many. This is the first time , that doctors refused to give vaccinations.
Quote: If docters don’t agree with a medicine, they must be allowed to refuse. However: When someone working for the Health-department and instructed to do vaccinate, they’re supposed to do their job, No questions asked.
According to KNMG-advocate Johan Legemaate their’s a lot of room to refuse. There’s to much discussion about this vaccine.
The HPV-vaccine had an image-problem from the start. Less than 50 % came to get their first shot.
