Dr. Bob Sears, a California pediatrician and known critic of compulsory immunization laws, faces the loss of his medical license after the state medical board accused him of improperly excusing a toddler from immunization. Dr. Sears is a very high profile pediatrician who has openly supported the Vaxxed movie and written several books on Autism and has openly supported a parent’s right to delay a child’s immunization schedule and exclude immunization, if necessary. From the story in the LA Times:
The Medical Board of California contends in legal documents released Thursday that Sears committed “gross negligence” and deviated from standard practice when he issued a letter in 2014 prescribing no more immunization for the child.
In the six-page accusation, the medical board faults Sears for failing to obtain a detailed history of a 2-year-old patient’s immunization before writing the letter and instead relying on the child’s mother, who described how the boy lost urinary function and went limp in response to previous immunizations.
