Some RN Patients Who Find Out Their Unvaccinated Doctors Have Been Suspended – New Brunswick | The Canadian News

A Fredericton man says the decision to suspend New Brunswick doctors who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 is clumsy and has left him without medical care.

Duncan Milne is diabetic and has borderline kidney function, but says he only learned that his doctor was suspended when the Fredericton hospital called to say his scheduled blood tests had been canceled.

Milne then tried to book the tests through his internal medicine specialist, but found that it had also been suspended for the same reason.

Dr. Ed Schollenberg, a registrar for the New Brunswick College of Physicians and Surgeons, says fewer than 10 of the 1,900 physicians in the province are not vaccinated, and the college suspended those without proof of a valid exemption as of 1 December.
