Peter Morrell claims that the 3 registers of professional
NMQ homeopaths in the UK formally oppose immunization:
‘It is significant that not one of these three bodies
supports the use of vaccination, and, indeed, they warn
patients that it can be a dangerous practice.’
I am aware of no such policy on the part of the Homeopathic
Medical Association (formerly UKHMA), of which I am a
member, and think it is unlikely that the other registers
would endorse such a policy.
