IMA objects to ‘homoeo vaccine’

more-in

The attempt to experiment with the so-called “homoeo vaccine” on people in the name of dengue prevention is unscientific, irrational and dangerous, the Indian Medical Association has claimed.

In a statement here, the IMA said that there were reports that homoeo medicine for dengue prevention was being distributed in Karakulam and Vembayam panchayats in the district. Homoeo system of medicine was being shunned by many nations because of its unscientific basis. It was because of the campaigning of those propagating homoeo medicines that the immunisation programme was being defeated. The Health department should intervene so that the unscientific experiment is not taken forward, the IMA said.
