Italy Makes Vaccine Mandatory For Over-50s And Bans Unvaccinated From Working
BritishHealthAllianceJanuary 6, 2022
Italy has made vaccination against COVID-19 mandatory for over-40s in the country, as well as banning those who are unvaccinated from various workplaces.
According to a report from an Italian news source ANSA, anyone over the age of 50 in Italy will be obliged to be jabbed against COVID-19 with the measure becoming effective immediately.
The measure was reportedly objected to by the Italian political party La Lega, which is currently part of the country’s ruling coalition.
Meanwhile, a ban on unvaccinated individuals in workplaces will soon be entering into effect.
This will be done through the implementation of the so-called “Super Green Pass”, which can only be contained through being vaccinated or having recovered from COVID-19.
Workers in shops, shopping centres, public offices, government buildings and commercial services will all be required to have a Super Green Pass.
The measure is immediately effective and will run until 15 June.
