The South African Medical Association has condemned anti-COVID-19 vaccination sentiments expressed by some healthcare workers.
This after a prominent heart surgeon landed herself in trouble for her anti-vaccination views.
Sama stressed that this only fueled vaccine hesitancy.
Chairperson, Dr Angelique Coetzee says Sama cannot support doctors who give out anti-vaccination sentiment to their patients, which is contrary to WHO regulations.
The Netcare Hospital Group has last week dissociated itself from anti-COVID-19 vaccination comments made by renowned heart surgeon, Dr Susan Vosloo.
