Vaccination against a new type of coronavirus infection in Spain will be voluntary.
The Spanish authorities will make a separate list of those who refuse to be vaccinated against coronavirus. About this on Monday, December 21, writes El Economista.
At the same time, the publication emphasizes that no sanctions are provided for refuseniks, and vaccination against COVID-19, as the authorities assure, will be completely voluntary.
“The records will be kept so that the government can understand the reasons why people do not want to be vaccinated against coronavirus,” the article says.
The authorities’ statement came after the European Medicines Agency approved the use of the drug by Pfizer and BioNTech in EU countries.
The publication reminds that the vaccination campaign, like in the rest of the European Union, in the Iberian kingdom will begin on December 27. The first drug to receive approval from the European Medicines Agency will receive medical and social workers, as well as the elderly living in nursing homes.
Also, the country’s authorities plan to vaccinate even those who have had COVID-19.
“The fact is that several cases of re-infection have already been identified in the world, one of them in Spain, so the authorities do not want to risk it,” the government explains.
Recall that in Spain, people were forbidden to move between regions for the winter holidays, as well as gather in companies of more than ten people.
Earlier, Pfizer began the registration process for the COVID vaccine. Pfizer and Biotech aim to produce more than 1.3 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines during the year.
