Physicians who post COVID-19 vaccine misinformation may lose license, medical panel says

Becker’s Health Review – by Jackie Drees

The Federation of State Medical Boards warned July 29 that physicians and other healthcare professionals could be at risk of losing their medical licenses if they spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation on social media, online and in the media.

FSMB, a nonprofit that represents all U.S. state medical boards, said any clinicians who create or spread vaccine misinformation or disinformation risk disciplinary action by state medical boards, including suspension or revocation of their medical license, according to a statement emailed to Becker’s Hospital Review.

“Due to their specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore have a powerful platform in society, whether they recognize it or not,” FSMB said. “They also have an ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual, scientifically grounded and consensus-driven for the betterment of public health.”

In July, President Joe Biden called out social media platforms like Facebook for allowing vaccine misinformation to spread on its services, claiming that disinformation about the vaccines is “killing people,” according to CNBC.

FSMB’s statement comes as the country grapples with an uptick in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. As of July 29, national cases are up 439.7 percent from the lowest average in June 2021, and just 49 percent of Americans are fully vaccinated, The New York Times reported.

About 97 percent of hospitalized COVID-19 patients aren’t vaccinated, according to the report.

  1. Well, now at least some of these Credentialed Phd’s and MD’s may realize that (They are at fkn War)… Yes, it is and has gone too far…. Shut up you fkrs or we’ll take your license to print money…

    I hope they choose humanity and freedom and continue to spill the beans. They should let these Non profit grifters know; in No uncertain terms, after this is all done, they will all be brought to justice under the peoples hanging ropes..

    1. “Shut up you fkrs or we’ll take your license to print money…”

      Who ever gave them a license or any other kind of authority to print worthless fiat currency? Who ever even authorized their existence in our country? No one! We were guaranteed interest-free currency. The global cabal of thieves and their minions will return every bit of the wealth they have stolen from us!

  2. The plan is to eliminate access to medical care. Of course many docs will go along to get along not realizing by remaining silent they are only aiding the enemy
