Tennessee physicians who create or spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation could now face disciplinary action, including suspension or revocation of their medical licenses in the most extreme cases, according to a new policy from the state medical board that oversees doctors.

The policy was adopted by the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners — a 12-member board that's appointed by the governor and responsible for disciplining physicians who violate practice standards — at its most recent meeting, on Sept. 21.

"Spreading inaccurate COVID-19 vaccine information contradicts that responsibility threatens to further erode public trust in the medical profession and puts all patients at risk," the policy states.
