A Canadian medical doctor and professor at the University of Waterloo has written a letter to his academic superiors outlining his opposition to the school’s COVID vaccine mandate, which he believes is illegal.
The letter was penned by Dr. Michael Palmer, who is a board-certified medical microbiologist who teaches pharmacology at the university. He addressed the president and chancellor of the university, along with the dean of the faculty of science and the chair of the department of chemistry, to explain why he categorically refuses to comply with any of the mandates related to COVID-19 vaccines that the school is imposing on its employees.
He began by saying that he will not declare his vaccination status, although he acknowledged that it will be easy for them to guess his view on the matter as he goes on to state: “I will not let myself be injected with any of the ineffective and poisonous concoctions that are misrepresented to the public as COVID vaccines.”
It is not the first time that he has shared his view with the university. In August, he joined 50 other individuals affiliated with the school in writing an open letter rejecting its announcement that all faculty, staff and students would be required to get the vaccine or be denied access to school grounds.
Palmer isn’t the only medical expert and academic to take this view of the vaccines and related mandates. He also identified three prominent immunologists from the University of Guelph who have been brave enough to oppose the vaccines; he lamented the fact that the school’s leadership has been persecuting them instead of asking for their guidance.Canadian doctor and medical professor speaks out against COVID-19 vaccines and mandates – Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD
