FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York Chiropractic Council Statement on Vaccine Mandates
NEW YORK, NY. – August 24th, 2021 – The New York Chiropractic Council supports freedom of choice in healthcare. Medical mandates for procedures such as vaccines are inconsistent with an individual’s freedom of choice, as such mandates violate personal rights and individual autonomy. The Council therefore supports an individual’s right to either choose a medical procedure or not. Accordingly, the Council stands with the International Chiropractors Association's long standing stated position against medical mandates and for the protection of informed patient consent and the preservation of personal choice in healthcare decisions.
