Wisconsin Doctor Suspended for Falsifying COVID-19 Vaccination Records

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Feb 27, 2023 | 0 Comments

A Wisconsin physician is back to work following a 30-day suspension for falsifying his COVID-19 vaccine status. The man falsely claimed that he and his family were vaccinated at his clinic. When false records were uncovered, he stated that he developed natural immunity to the disease. The Wisconsin State Medical Examining Board suspended the doctor's license for 30 days. He was also ordered to pay a fine and complete a professional ethics course.

A Deep Division

There's no denying the impact that COVID-19 has had on our country. Everyone has their own opinions on how serious the disease is and what steps should be taken to prevent transmission. There is serious debate over the effectiveness of social distancing, masks, and vaccines. Unfortunately, misinformation and disinformation have run rampant online. This has only further divided our nation.

Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are held to high standards. They hold a high degree of public trust. They also have an ethical responsibility to provide care that benefits their patients. Their decisions must be grounded in science and standards decided upon by the medical community. Fail to abide by these standards and professional consequences may result.

Fake Vaccine Records

Many businesses and government agencies require individuals to be fully vaccinated before entering properties or traveling. At the beginning of 2020, many individuals began selling fake vaccine cards and records that falsely state that the bearer was indeed vaccinated. The FBI has stated that it is illegal to buy, create, or distribute fake vaccine records. Given the high-stakes nature of this kind of violation, the fallout for the Wisconsin physician could have been far more serious.

Of course, a month's suspension is really only the start of the consequences for this doctor. His name has been publicized, his reputation tarnished, and he may struggle to find new opportunities in the future. For these reasons, it's important that anyone accused of falsifying vaccine records seek legal representation as soon as possible.

Making Things Right

During these challenging times, it's important for healthcare providers to understand their rights. Violating policies comes with steep penalties, including fines, the loss of license or certifications, and even imprisonment. As these crimes are relatively new and the pandemic is so unprecedented, many individuals are being lost in the crossfire.
