US midwife fined $300k for faking vaccine records for 1,500 children after giving them ‘homeopathic pellets’

A midwife in New York who reportedly gave 1,500 children homeopathic pellets rather than the vaccinations required by the state has been fined $300,000 by the state's health department.

The midwife was identified as Jeanette Breen, who operates the Long Island-based Baldwin Midwifery.

Ms Breen reportedly gave the pellets as an alternative to required vaccinations and then proceeded to falsify the children's immunisation records, according to the New York Department of Health.

The midwife reportedly began giving the pellets during the Covid-19 pandemic, specifically during the 2019-2020 school year. The majority of the affected children live in Long Island, according to the Associated Press.

The health department said that the false records have since been voided, and that the families will have to ensure their students are up-to-date with their shots before they can return to school.

“Misrepresenting or falsifying vaccine records puts lives in jeopardy and undermines the system that exists to protect public health,” State Health Commissioner James McDonald said in a statement.
