A registered massage therapist in Vancouver was recently reprimanded for using his clinic’s database to send an email to patients criticizing the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and mandatory vaccination for health professionals.

According to a newly released public notice from the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia, Ian Glass sent a “lengthy email” from his work email address to about 205 people in January 2022, mostly his patients.

“The email primarily contained criticism of a proposed mandatory COVID-19 vaccination requirement for health professionals, but also included two statements regarding the efficacy and safety of COVID-19 vaccines,” the notice said.

In October 2021, the province announced a plan to make vaccination a condition of licensing for everyone from dentists to registered massage therapists.
