© The Ohio Channel Dr Sherri Tenpenny. The Ohio ChannelA prominent anti-vax doctor from Ohio, who pushed the false claim that COVID-19 vaccines could make people magnetic, has had her medical license renewed, according to the Ohio Capital Journal.
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny is an osteopathic physician who has spent years making unproven or exaggerated claims about vaccines.
Her license, first issued in 1984, was due to expire on October 1. It was renewed by the State Medical Board of Ohio on September 16.
Jerica Stewart, a spokesperson for the Board, confirmed to the Ohio Capital Journal that Tenpenny’s license was automatically renewed until 2023.
“A recent renewal does not prevent the board from taking future disciplinary action,” she said, according to the Ohio Capital Journal.
Tenpenny attracted nationwide media attention in June after she falsely told Ohio House Health Committee that the coronavirus vaccine could potentially make people “magnetized,” Insider reported previously.
“You can put a key on their forehead. It sticks. You can put spoons and forks all over, and they can stick because now we think there is a metal piece to that,” she said.
Tenpenny also falsely said that COVID-19 vaccines contain particles that connect a person to 5G mobile data networks.
The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) named Tenpenny among 12 anti-vaxxers responsible for spreading 65% of false information about vaccines in March this year.
The report caught the attention of President Joe Biden in July, who said: “These 12 people are out there giving misinformation. Anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it.”
Tenpenny’s Twitter account was permanently suspended in June after the company said her COVID-19 vaccine claims violated its misinformation policy.
Insider reached out to Tenpenny for further comment but did not hear back in time for publication.
Stewart said the Ohio board renews medical licenses automatically to keep up with the 92,000 practitioners in the state.
She told Insider that the complaints it receives about physicians are usually confidential, although if a licensee is disciplined by the board, the action is public record. She did not comment specifically about Tenpenny’s renewal.

  1. This quote I found on a search engine. "The Hippocratic Oath is an oath taken by new physicians to protect all life, to hold in highest regard one's teachers, to recognize one's limitations, and to renounce self-interest in the treatment of patients. Certain values inherent in the Hippocratic Oath are echoed in modern views of professionalism." All I can remember is first do no harm or something like that. Why has Tenpenny not been disciplined. Why wasn't her renewal targeted for possible denial. What she is doing and has been doing is no secret. if she is prone to giving out misinformation wouldn't one want to look at or at least talk to her patients to determine if she has shown incompetency in other areas of her profession. People's lives are in her hands. And folks wonder why most people don't trust doctors. If the Ohio board for licensing is the only defense against inept doctors, then God Help us all everywhere.
