A Kaiapoi doctor caught handing out fake vaccine exemptions is no longer registered to practise medicine in New Zealand.
Footage of Jonie Girouard issuing bogus exemptions and coaching people on how to use them sparked an investigation into the North Canterbury GP in December.
Medical Council chairperson Curtis Walker said Dr Girouard was now unable to practise medicine in New Zealand, as she was no longer registered.
In December the council suspended the practising certificates of three doctors as it investigated claims they had shared Covid-19 misinformation.
Dr Peter Canaday, Dr Emanuel Garcia, and Dr Matthew Shelton are unable to practise, but have appealed the council's decision to the District Court.
The same month, Walker said the Medical Council had begun gathering information "with urgency" once the footage of Girouard aired on Newshub.
Hailing from the United States, Dr Girouard and her husband, Michael, have both worked as doctors for over 20 years, including as missionaries in Ecuador and Africa. »
