Dr Paul Nisselle: I'm close to being broken...

I saw a patient recently who wanted a vaccine exemption certificate. When I asked why, she retorted in high dudgeon that surely I know that if you’ve had COVID-19 you’re exempt from vaccination for six months. 

I pointed out that the regulations did not say that.

I also pointed out that the latest ATAGI guidance statement also said patients who’d had a COVID-19 infection, should complete their vaccination program as soon as they recovered from the acute infection within four months.

She said I was confused.
