This past weekend if you have been on social media at all, chances are high that you have seen the recent uproar about an article displaying the various options for receiving the flu vaccine.
The article in debate was published by Palmer College of Chiropractic and was sent out to their Alumni in their Gift Legacy eNewsletter.
Once this article hit social media, it immediately went viral within the chiropractic community… over 3500 shares and comments within one day.
The Circle of Docs team reached out to Palmer for an official response. As of this time we have not received one. Here is what is being circulated on social media currently:
[quote_box_center]Alumni, students and friends: A message has been sent out regarding the GiftLegacy eNewsletter article that went out yesterday. Please read this for an explanation …
The GiftLegacy eNewsletter sent out yesterday, Saturday, September 27, included an article, Savvy Living, written by Jim Miller containing information about flu vaccines.
Please know Palmer College did not endorse or promote this information being forwarded to you.
The GiftLegacy eNewsletter is a contracted service which includes educational, informative and helpful information for our alumni and friends. This particular article from Savvy Living was included in the eNewletter and sent from the contractor without our review and approval. We will contact the contractor immediately to underscore our need to always review the complete message that is sent to you, and that all content aligns with topics of our curriculum and our Identity documents, or we will discontinue our contract with them.
Thank you for your understanding.
