[fa icon="calendar"] Aug 21, 2019 6:30:00 AM / by VillageMD


The "anti-vax" movement is constantly in the news- most recently when the Mayor of NYC declared a state of emergency due to a measles outbreak. Even patients who are not "anti-vax" can have hesitancy about vaccines that create a dilemma for the primary care provider. In this episode we talk with Dr. Clive Fields, VillageMD's Chief Medical Officer, about how to have productive conversations with hesitant patients, how to report contagious diseases, deal with quarantines. We also cover the burning question of if you can terminate an anti-vax patient.
