Melons: “Stop the obligation of vaccines for health personnel”



No vaccine requirements for doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals. The Meloni government abolishes the last remaining vaccination obligation. On June 15, the previous Draghi government had already abolished the obligation for workers over 50, schools, law enforcement and the security sector. From now on, the obligation as an essential condition for continuing to exercise one’s profession is completely lost, two months in advance. Initially, according to the schedule established by the Draghi government, the bond was to expire on December 31, 2022.

It is necessary “to allow 4,000 workers in the sector to return to work”, declared the Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni during a press conference. With the forfeiture of the vaccination obligation, in fact, the suspension of all no-vax health workers will also end, who can be regularly reinstated in the workplace. “The epidemiological picture has changed profoundly,” observed Minister of Health Orazio Schillaci. “The impact on hospitals is limited, infections are reduced and bed occupancy rates in regular wards and intensive care units remain stable. On the other hand, the problem of doctor shortages remains strong, a result of the poor programming of the last 10 years, which has led hospitals to resort to non-community doctors or tokens.

Vaccines, the obligation also falls in Rsa and reintegration structures

The vaccination obligation is also null and void for workers in the RSA, Hospices, EHPADs and EHPADs. Even those who are not self-sufficient. However, the obligation to wear a mask remains in health establishments. Signs of discontinuity with the past government are evident, right down to the decision to scrap the daily covid bulletin. Replaced by weekly update. “The weekly estimate provides greater certainty from a statistical perspective,” says Schillaci. Also specifying that the daily bulletin will not be classified but will always remain at the disposal of the competent authorities.
