Anti-vax chiro banned from hosting med students

An anti-vaccination chiropractor has been “permanently terminated” from his role offering placements for medical students at the University of NSW. 

Coffs Harbour-based chiropractor Jason Parkes has previously used Facebook to disparage pharmaceuticals as “snake oil” and vaccinations as the “biggest medical sham since bloodletting”. 

He has also given public support to the anti-vaccination campaign group, the Australian Vaccination-Skeptics Network.
