Furore has erupted over the City of Sydney's listing of an anti-vaccination event planned.

Prominent anti-vaccination academic Dr Judy Wilyman was scheduled to speak at Monday's gathering which the City of Sydney had listed on the "What's On" page of its website.

The council has now removed the listing, at the request of Lord Mayor Clover Moore, but Liberal Councillor Christine Forster says the whole event should be scrapped if it's being held at a council-owned facility.

"They should not be holding a function like this in rate-payer funded facilities because it's not the right thing to be doing," Ms Forster told ABC radio.

"It's irresponsible, frankly, and I'll be saying so clearly as soon as I get into the office."
