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.”
