Dental Practice Threatened After Advising Extra Charge for Unvaxxed

A Palmerston North dentist has been bombarded with threats – including to burn the practice down – after advising it wants all patients to be vaccinated, and will charge those that aren’t a fee for use of PPE.

Vivian St Dental put up the notice a week ago, and the practice spokeswoman, who only wanted to be identified as “Erin”, says they’ve had several threats since.

The notice says the business will require all adult patients to provide proof of vaccination from December 1 and that “unvaccinated patients may be seen at the last appointment of the day with full PPE gear, only for emergencies and will be charged accordingly an extra fee.”

    PPE has been required since 1980’s because of HIV/AIDS. This information is personal medical information. This dds is looking to reduce his patient flow and increase his prices for Jabbed patients. Makes no sense. He may go out of business. In the 80’s doctors tried to increase fees because of PPE and it didn’t work. Patients went to doctors that didn’t have bigger fees. This is the price of doing business.
    It’s the manufacturers that are sucking everyone dry that’s your government. Talk to the dental lobbyists.
