Emergency meeting yesterday in the Regional Crisis Unit. Topic? The unvaccinated health workers, at least 3,000 in Piedmont, some of whom – requested by letter from the ASL to justify the refusal – have already appealed to the TAR.
They relied on the lawyer Daniele Granara. In summary, in the appeal, administrative judges are asked to suspend the vaccination obligation provided for by decree law 44 of 1 April 2021. Because “in contrast with the Constitution and the European Charter of Fundamental Rights in relation to the protection of the health of the individual citizen “. The appeal argues that vaccines not only “do not provide total coverage from the infection, but that they have risk profiles”. This would force the Public Administration, faced with an internal rule that conflicts with higher principles, “to disapply the provisions”. The Local Health Authorities, on the proposal of Antonio Rinaudo, Head of the Legal Area of the Crisis Unit, have relied on a single lawyer: Professor Vittorio Barosio. He explains: «No one disputes that vaccines do not guarantee 100% coverage and that in extremely limited cases there can be negative reactions, but the problem is to make a comparison between risks and benefits. All epidemiologists, without exception, certify that the benefits of vaccination are infinitely greater than the risks. This paradigm is even more valid for doctors who are in contact with the sick and could therefore put at risk the health of the people who instead for professional duty should protect “.
