Will the kovid 19 vaccine become mandatory for all categories of the population?
Judging by the development of the situation, we are getting closer to this decision at the European level.
Austria was the first to “pull its leg”, where this measure has already entered into force. The disobedient are expected to be fined as much as 3,600 euros. In some other countries, the vaccine is mandatory for certain categories of society. Slovak Prime Minister Eduard Heger announced these days that his government will propose mandatory vaccination of the elderly. Earlier, some of the countries, as early as this summer, such as France, Italy or Great Britain, introduced the obligation to vaccinate health workers.
Where vaccination is not mandatory, it is increasingly taking the form. In France, for example, the PCR test is now valid for only 24 hours, which means that unvaccinated people would have to be tested every day in order to be able to enter a restaurant, cinema, museum, train … And the test costs 44 euros.
More and more countries are introducing direct segregation of the population, between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. Slovakia, Austria and the Netherlands have already introduced measures in that sense. Official Bratislava has announced that unvaccinated people, even with a negative test, will not be able to enter stores that are not essential.
Such decisions often depend directly on the number of infected. The more complicated the health situation, the more EU countries resort to stronger measures, which, according to some, go beyond democratic frameworks. As the virus progresses, it seems that the moment is approaching when vaccination will be ordered.
Acceptance of vaccination is also a cultural issue. Surprisingly, the Mediterranean, which otherwise has a reputation for being less obedient than northern Europe, is a “good vaccine student.” 88 percent were vaccinated in Portugal, 84 percent in Malta, and 80 percent in Spain. In, say, French Brittany, as many as 96 percent of people were vaccinated. Some environments are far more skeptical. Germanophone areas, for example. In the whole of Germany, the average vaccination is below 70 percent, and in some “landers” it is only around 50. This ratio has moved beyond the borders of this country, so the percentage of vaccinated in South Tyrol, where many Germans live, is much lower than the rest of Italy.
Also, Eastern Europe is significantly less vaccinated than the West. This is even visible in the now unique country, Germany, where the eastern parts are obviously far more suspicious of the vaccine than the western ones. All this is directly maintained on the number of seriously ill and deceased.
In the French overseas territories, in Guadeloupe and Martinique, the number of completely vaccinated barely exceeds one third, while in the continental part of the country it exceeds 76 percent. In recent days, Guadeloupe and Martinique have been the scene of sharp clashes between the fiercest protesters against sanitary passports and the mandatory vaccination of health workers. Those who are against the vaccine are also protesting in Western Europe, as, for example, in Belgium and the Netherlands.
The fight against the vaccine has made great strides on the political scene throughout the EU. Far-right parties are particularly at the forefront of skepticism about the vaccine. All this is becoming a key democratic issue in today’s world. The vaccine is mandatory in countries such as Indonesia, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan or Micronesia, which can often be heard to be champions of democracy. It turns out that health can only be achieved with a firm hand. However, this obligation also applies to the Vatican, while the French region of New Caledonia is preparing to do the same, thanks to the acquired great autonomous rights.
Some see the unanimity and dictates of the authorities in the pronounced measures, and especially in the obligation to vaccinate. They insist on the right to decide for themselves what to do with their own body.
Others emphasize the collective obligation, emphasizing that the rights of some end where the rights of others begin:
– Unvaccinated, not only put pressure on the health system by occupying hospital beds, but also represent a reservoir for creating more resistant variants of the virus, which will, in the end, thus become resistant to the vaccine.
Those who oppose vaccination point to examples of growing uprisings in the world. Those in favor of the vaccine emphasize that the number of protesters is far smaller than those who have been vaccinated voluntarily. They add that until now, during the great pandemics, throughout history, in the last century, vaccination was mandatory, for the salvation of humanity.
The ball is now primarily in the field of power of the most developed countries in the world. This, obviously, cannot be continued. The pandemic is taking too long. Many will agree that they will have to choose between consistent respect for personal freedoms and a pandemic approach. Stretching between these two terms indefinitely will be most conducive to the virus.
The fateful words of the German Minister of Health, Jens Span, sound like a warning, who said “that in the end, everyone will be vaccinated, cured or dead”.
MANDATORY THIRD DOSE
SUSPECTS draw attention to the fact that in France, despite the fact that nearly 90 percent of those older than 12 received the vaccine, the fifth wave of the corona is currently “jumping into the sky”. Health Minister Olivia Veran points out that it would be much worse if they were not vaccinated. There are 10 times fewer vaccinated people among the hospitalized, so the minister said that it would be difficult to imagine how many cases there would be without the vaccine. He also cited the example that in Germany and France, in regions with more vaccinated people, there are proportionally fewer severe cases.
– Everyone will have to receive the third dose, regardless of the number of antibodies, by January 15, seven months after the second dose, otherwise they will not have a valid sanitary passport, necessary for a normal life – announced Veran.
Although there are far more skeptics about the third dose than about the first two, the terms for vaccination became overbooked at the time of the announcement.
