Subject: Actually, my Doctor is very open to alternative or wholistic medicine.
In reply to: Not 's message, "Most doctors aren’t trained epidemiologists. Furthermore med school favors pharmaceutical and surgical treatments." on 09:33:51 08/12/21 Thu

She has in the past directed me to non-western treatents such as suppliments, acupuncture and CBD when she felt they could help me. She also encourages all her patients to get vaccinated and wear masks in indoor public settings. She got the vaccine herself and her family is vaccinated.

While most GP's are indeed not virologists. Neither are most of the naysayers spreading misinformation on the internet.

My doctor has a history of referring me to specialists when it is appropriate, and I feel certain she didn't come to her recommendations on Vaccines wholey on her own knowledge, but is drawing from the expertice of those she knows and trusts who are specialists in this area.

As far as I can see, those who specialize in virology are saying that people should get vaccinated to lesson risk of serious illness and to slow the process of this virus mutating and forming new strains.

So, my comment is unchanged, I'll listen to my doctor. That is not to say I follow blindly. Her recommendations on Covid vaccines and masks make good sense to me.
