California doctor critical of vaccines is punished for exempting 2-year-old boy from all childhood immunizations

From LA Times

In a decision that could signal how California’s fierce vaccine debates will play out in the coming years, the Medical Board of California has ordered 35 months’ probation for Dr. Bob Sears, an Orange County pediatrician well-known for being sympathetic to parents opposed to vaccines.

In 2016, the board threatened to revoke Sears’ medical license for wrongly writing a doctor’s note for a 2-year-old boy that exempted him from all childhood vaccinations. This week, the medical board settled on a lesser punishment.

Sears can keep practicing medicine but will be required to take 40 hours of medical education courses a year, as well as an ethics class, and also be monitored by a fellow doctor. He also must notify all hospital and medical facilities where he practices of the order and is not allowed to supervise physician assistants or nurse practitioners.

The doctor’s supporters expressed relief that he was not more severely punished, while critics were pleased that the state did more than simply reprimand him, as some had feared.

An MD accidentally vaccinates a 4mth old baby with Gardasil – Mother blamed for vaccine injuries and baby medically kidnapped

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

Doctors call it a “medication administration error.” During a routine check-up at her pediatrician’s office, 4-month old Aniya was accidentally given the Gardasil 9 vaccine, and she hasn’t been the same since.

Anita Vasquez of Victoria, Texas, herself a nurse, says that “doctors are in denial” that any of the medical issues that began after her daughter received the shot are related to the vaccine.

Aniya was a happy and healthy breastfed baby before her 4-month doctor visit. Her only illness was an ear infection which had been cleared up with antibiotics shortly before that fateful day of December 29, 2016. Since then, she has suffered numerous health issues and several hospitalizations.

RELATED ARTICLE:

Rather than acknowledge the possibility that the Gardasil 9 vaccine contributed to the decline in Aniya’s health, doctors and Child Protective Services have reportedly blamed the mother. Her desperate search for answers has led instead to her being accused of Munchausen by Proxy, or “medical child abuse,” and her baby has been seized by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS).

Anita told Health Impact News that her concerns about the vaccine have been dismissed and ignored by virtually everyone involved in her daughter’s care. DFPS refers to her “unfounded concerns” about the Gardasil 9 vaccine. She believes that they are trying to cover up the dangers of the vaccine.

This is any mother’s worst nightmare, and no one deserves this.
