VLADIVISTOK, October 11. /TASS/. A doctor in Russia’s Far East who refused to provide a rabies vaccination to a patient bitten by a dog, advising her instead to go to church, has been fired, the local government’s press office announced Tuesday.
"The doctor who took it upon himself to act so brazenly was sacked. The hospital’s head issued a warning," the press service said.
Local media reported earlier that medics at the hospital in the Far Eastern town of Dalnegorsk refused to vaccinate a girl bitten by a stray dog against rabies citing the vaccine shortage.
She was told to go to church and pray "for the dog’s health" instead.
