Retired doctor’s license suspended after state found she mailed fake vaccine exemption forms

A retired Connecticut doctor’s medical license was suspended after the state’s public health agency and medical examining board found she offered fake COVID-19 vaccine and mask exemptions without any exam.

The Connecticut Department of Public Health announced Sue Mcintosh’s license would be suspended after an anonymous complaint alleged the retired physician and surgeon authored fake exemption forms for COVID-19 vaccines, general vaccines, COVID testing and mask usage. The board said McIntosh sent out forms without ever seeing patients. McIntosh also encouraged people to distribute her forms to others, records seen by the Washington Post said.

“You may copy and distribute as many forms as you wish to anyone,” she wrote in instructions seen by The Post. “Keep blank copies for yourself for future use.” Records seen by The Post show that McIntosh would then sign off with her name and the phrase, “Let freedom ring!”

“These actions by Dr. Mcintosh are irresponsible and unacceptable,” DPH Commissioner Manisha Juthani said. “Her practice of medicine represents a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety of our communities. The suspension of her license should serve as a warning to other practitioners that this conduct deviates from the standard of care and is subject to serious discipline.”

The state’s medical board will review the allegations against her with a final decision on whether or not to revoke her license looming.
