Connecticut's Department of Public Health has suspended the license of physician and surgeon Sue McIntosh, M.D. of Durham, CT, for providing fraudulent vaccine exemption forms through the mail related to COVID-19, according to a Connecticut State press release dated September 24, 2021.

The forms were provided by Dr. Mcintosh even though she had never seen a patient. In the press release, the DPH Commissioner stated:

 Her practice of medicine represents a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety of our communities. The suspension of her license should serve as a warning to other practitioners that this conduct deviates from the standard of care and is subject to serious discipline.

An article in the September 29 edition of the Washington Post states that an individual anonymously contacted the DPH with the initial complaint. That same individual claimed that McIntosh was mailing fake coronavirus vaccine and mask exemption forms to anyone who sent her a self-addressed manila envelope.
