AB 2098 is California’s COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation Bill and it defines “misinformation” as “false information that is contradicted by contemporary scientific consensus contrary to the standard of care.” The issue with this is that throughout the duration of the pandemic we have seen the “contemporary scientific consensus” change with high frequency.
If AB 2098 becomes law, doctors will no longer be able to make personalized recommendations to their patients. As Naturopathic Doctors we value personalized healthcare because we know that every body is different and has different needs. Doctors, who know their patients best, should be able to make recommendations, without fear of repercussions.
