Doctors Stand Up for Vaccination

10 September 2021 ASMS

ASMS supports an open letter written on behalf of doctors who want to present a united and evidence-based voice to the people of Aotearoa New Zealand in support of vaccination against Covid-19 for all eligible New Zealanders. For more information and details on how to sign up and take part, see below.

This is a grassroots initiative by a group of doctors. Doctors Stand Up for Vaccination includes public health physicians, GPs, ICU physicians, urgent care, respiratory and infectious disease physicians, paediatricians, emergency specialists, obstetricians, gynaecologists, surgeons and more.

They want to present a united and evidence-based voice to the people of Aotearoa New Zealand in support of vaccination against Covid-19 for all eligible New Zealanders.

They are urging all doctors to sign the letter and have also put together some FAQs which can answer some commonly asked questions patients have about vaccination.

To sign the letter, and to see all the details please go here.

You will need to provide your name, MCNZ number, qualification and specialty. That way each signature can be verified to ensure the legitimacy of the letter.
