Doctors condemn homeopathic vaccinations

Doctors have condemned the practice of offering homeopathic vaccinations instead of conventional ones, warning it could leave patients vulnerable to potentially fatal diseases.

A BBC Scotland investigation has found alternative practitioners who admit to giving patients a homeopathic medicine designed to replace the MMR vaccine. One also claimed she could protect against other diseases including Polio, Tetanus and Diptheria.
