A Connecticut doctor gave up her medical license after an investigation found that she gave blank, signed vaccination waiver forms to anyone who mailed a self-addressed envelope.
About Business Insider:
An anonymous tip to the Connecticut Medical Examining Board led to an investigation by retired medical doctor Sue McIntosh.
They have “provided fraudulent vaccine exception forms by mail related to COVID-19 vaccines, general vaccines, COVID tests and medical resistance to wearing face masks,” the investigation said. Patients who received these forms only had to enter their name and date and then select a reason for a mask exemption, records show.
Supplementary documents from the state Department of Health said McIntosh also instructed patients to “copy and distribute as many forms as they would like”.
McIntosh needed to know she was going to get caught. She encouraged people to duplicate and distribute the blank forms.
Helping people defraud the system and endanger public health does not protect freedom. People do not have the freedom to get COVID and infect others.
This kind of sabotage from within is why the pandemic is still a problem in the US. As soon as Trump politicized the issue of masks, he prepared the nation for disease, death and failure.
America will never defeat COVID as long as Republicans continue to deliberately undermine public health.
