The College of Medicine and Faculty of Homeopathy have published a joint statement encouraging people to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
The statement comes after the respective organisations’ Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, appeared in a video for the British Asian Trust this week encouraging “people from every background to take up the vaccine” and praising the “superhuman effort by medical experts” to produce it.
Dr Gary Smyth, President of the Faculty of Homeopathy, and Dr Michael Dixon, Chair of the College of Medicine, published a statement on Friday, saying:
“We welcome the recent initiative from our Patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, encouraging an increased uptake of the COVID-19 vaccination.
“Both of our organisations advocate an integrated, sustainable and multi-faceted approach to healthcare, emphasising the importance of prevention and seeking to empower a healthier and happier population.
“Both organisations support the current public health measures in the fight against COVID-19 and, provided there is no medical contraindication, we encourage the public to take advantage of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
“These preventative approaches are important strategies to limit the spread of COVID-19 and assist all communities around the world to emerge from the current pandemic.”
