Re: UK doctors re-examine case for mandatory vaccination

Yes. Some doctors examine the case for mandatoty vaccination.
Most doctors swallow, hook, line and sinker, the "guidance" from on high.
Do most doctors counter the arguments of those who urge parental freedom? No, they don't.
At least I have not seen a single counter " rapid response" to my rapid responses.
That leaves the medical students - the doctors of tomorrow. Do THEY discuss such things?
