For almost a year there has been discussion of the vaccination obligation, whether it is unconstitutional or counterproductive. Today in Italy the vaccine is mandatory only for certain categories of workers and the possibility of extending it to everyone is not currently being discussed. Because?
Why, as the Minister for Public Administration explained Renato Brunetta acting as a spokesperson for the Government: “There is no need“. The Italian situation is, in comparison with its European neighbors, one of the rosiest.
The same Angela Merkelworried about Germany, she hinted that if her country were in the Italian situation there would be no fear of a fourth wave. Precisely to counter this in Europe we have returned to talk about vaccination obligation starting from 2022, in particular from February.
Will there be a mandatory vaccine for all workers?
Periodically we return to discuss the issue of the vaccination obligation, the legal value and so on. For many European citizens it is a cause for fear, for others it is the much agonized definitive solution to the pandemic.
The opening of Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, is a significant step in this direction, already concretized by some countries such as theAustria and Greece, where it will come into effect on February 16.
It has also been discussed in Italy, especially with regard to all workers. At the moment, however, from 15 December, the vaccination obligation will be extended only to all health personnel, law enforcement agencies and school staff.
Compulsory vaccine: the decision of Italy
It was the spokesman for the choice of the Draghi government Renato Brunetta that, interviewed on the Corriere della Sera, confirmed Italy’s “no” to the vaccination obligation for all workers.
According to the Minister, there would be no need for vaccination, but for convincing as many people as possible to get vaccinated. Which, from the post-announcement data of the so-called “super green pass”, seems to be actually happening. For example, for the third doses there was a real boom in bookings (400 thousand), due to the opening for all age groups starting from December 1st.
Even some no-vaxes have convinced themselves to get vaccinated, at least with the first dose, in view of the restrictions introduced from tomorrow, December 6 and the now approaching Christmas season.
The reasons of Italy against the vaccination obligation for all workers
L’vaccination obligation in Italy it already exists and as we know, starting from December 15 this measure, foreseen for health personnel, will also be extended to school personnel and law enforcement agencies.
“At the moment the vaccination obligation is in the background, we are not in difficulty like Germany”, Brunetta reported, recalling the words of the former chancellor Angela Merkel on the rosy Italian situation.
Not extending the mandatory vaccine to everyone was a decision dictated by the current Italian situation, in which thanks to the introduction of reinforced green pass you will be able to enjoy a normal Christmas, at least for the vaccinated.
In conclusion, Minister Brunetta wanted to reiterate how “compulsory vaccination would not improve performance”And would only have produced fines that probably would not have been paid. Not to mention that it could have ended up making all those who go down to the streets to demonstrate against the green pass even more discontented, in a period in which gatherings are strongly discouraged. Ultimately bubble the mandatory vaccine come useless.
