Covid and vaccinations in Italy. The appeal of the Head of State Sergio Mattarella is to get immunized. The concept of “health as a public good”, he says during the academic year of the University of Pavia, allows us to underline the “call to social responsibility and moral and civic duty of vaccination. This is the tool that the scientific community has delivered to us with great speed to defeat the virus and which is allowing us to overcome the economic and social consequences “of the pandemic.”Freedom cannot be invoked to escape vaccination, come license to endanger the health and life of others“says the Head of State.” Those who pretend not to get vaccinated, with the exception of those who cannot do it, and to lead a normal life, attending shared places of work, education and leisure, actually force all senior citizens to limit their freedom , giving up a prospect of normality in life “, he stressed.
Threats and violence against categories such as doctors and journalists, says the Head of State, are “a serious alarming phenomenon, must be firmly opposed, sanctioned with due rigor to protect those, who are the vast majority of citizens, have adopted responsible behavior by warning a common duty of solidarity “.
