The investigations into a Vorarlberg doctor who is said to have issued vaccination exemptions without good reason have been discontinued.

The Feldkirch public prosecutor’s office reported this to the APA on Monday. The doctor from the Vorarlberg Unterland had been investigated on suspicion of falsification of evidence.

According to a spokesman, the proceedings were discontinued “for reasons of evidence”. No further details were given. The case became public at the beginning of the year when vaccination exemptions became an issue because of the announced (and suspended over the summer) vaccination against the corona virus. There were reports that people made a pilgrimage from doctor to doctor in the hope of being exempt from vaccination or turned to doctors who were known to be critical of vaccination.

Four procedures related to CoV measures

The Disciplinary Committee of the Vorarlberg Medical Association conducted four procedures in connection with the Corona measures at the end of 2021. A spokesman for the Vorarlberg Medical Association said on Monday that no information should be given about their content and result. In the meantime, no new proceedings have been opened, and the overall situation has “clearly calmed down” since the beginning of the year.
