Illinois doctor Van Koinis may have faked vaccination records: sheriff

Authorities are investigating the medical records of a Chicago-area pediatrician who died by suicide after finding a note that raised questions over his vaccination practices, sheriff’s deputies said.

Dr. Van Koinis died in September, but the Cook County Sheriff’s Office said when investigating his death, there were “record keeping issues” that made it unclear which patients received vaccinations and which didn’t.

Investigators also found evidence to suggest Koinis did not vaccinate children at parents’ requests, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

“He was well known for being someone who was into homeopathic medicine, and from what we have determined, it was well known that people opposed to vaccination could go to him,” Sheriff Tom Dart told the Chicago Tribune.

Investigators believe parents would use falsified records so their children could attend schools that would otherwise require all students to be vaccinated, Dart told WBBM-TV.
