Compulsory vaccination for over 50 years in Italy

The decision is imposed on everyone over the age of 50 who does not work for vaccination, and those over 50 who work must obtain a vaccination passport. This is the first time in Europe that a country has required the vaccination of people under the age of 50.

Those who do not follow the new rules may be fined €100 from 1 February.

Those who have not been vaccinated himself, or contracted an infection, in the future will not be able to go to work. But even those who have recovered from the infection should get the vaccine no later than six months after recovery.

This is effective from the time the law enters into force until June 15.

The government also decided that anyone wishing to visit banks, shopping centers and shops must present a “green passport” stating that he received two or three injections, was infected or tested negative for the covid-19 virus.

We do this for hospitals To carry out its mission and to be able to keep schools and stores open, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said according to Republic.

We want to slow down the infection curve and encourage Italians who have not yet been vaccinated to do so, working particularly with age groups whose risks are greater than their need for hospital care.

Of Italy’s population of 59 million, about 28 million are over 50.

And Italy recorded, on Wednesday, 190,000 new infections during the past 24 hours, which is a record number since the beginning of the epidemic. 138,000 people have died as a result of the Covid-19 virus since the epidemic hit Italy in February 2020.
