Two Ontario doctors banned from granting medical exemptions to COVID-19 vaccine – .


TORONTO – Ontario’s medical profession regulator has banned two outspoken doctors from issuing medical exemptions related to COVID-19 vaccinations.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario announced the restrictions against Dr Mark Trozzi of Harrow and Dr Rochagne Kilian of Owen Sound on Monday morning.

Trozzi and Kilian have both been outspoken about COVID-19 restrictions in the past while expressing skepticism about COVID-19 vaccines.

Kilian, in particular, has already been a speaker at several rallies organized by the “Gray-Bruce Freedom Fighters” group and resigned her post as an emergency physician last month to protest against the Gray Bruce Health Services’ handling of the pandemic. .

Under the interim order announced today but released last week, doctors were not allowed to provide medical exemptions for COVID-19 vaccines, mandatory mask requirements for COVID-19, and testing for COVID-19.

Their practices will also be required to post information about the restrictions in their offices.

The college said it is issuing the interim orders under powers granted to it in 2018, which allow it to “suspend or impose terms, conditions or limitations on a member’s certificate of registration. when the college believes that the conduct exposes or is likely to expose patients to harm or harm.

No doctor has been referred to court with allegations related to the restrictions at this point.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Kieran Moore has previously said COVID-19 vaccines are safe and very effective, and medical exemptions should only be granted at a rate of around five people per 100,000.

He said the only two legitimate medical exemptions are an allergy to any component of the vaccine or an increased risk of myocarditis.
