Conlon had his license suspended in February by the Medical Council ‘pending further investigation.’
Conlon has been practising in the Murupara area for 30 years. His license to practise medicine was suspended by the Medical Council in February as a result of complaints made about his views on the Pfizer COVID mRNA vaccine.
It has been revealed by New Zealand Doctor that the Medical Council renewed his license to practise without restrictions from May 20 until August 31 2022.
Murupara local Motuhake o Tawhiuau said the community was overjoyed at Conlon’s reinstatement, saying “We have great respect for his capability as a doctor, for his longstanding devotion to meeting our needs as part of this community. He attends events at this kura and the marae and is learning whaikorero on the marae, along with waiata and haka. He’ll come calling on patients after work, in his own time.”
