Vaccination obligation: the national secretary of Assomed intervened by answering some questions regarding the French vaccination obligation, arguing that in Italy this duty has already existed for months and that only 0.2% of 130,000 Italian doctors are not vaccinated
Carlo Palermo, National Secretary of Anaao Assomed, spoke to the microphones of the broadcast “Italy has awakened”, Conducted by the director Gianluca Fabi, Matteo Torrioli is Daniel Moretti up Radio Cusano Campus, regarding the French government’s measure against unvaccinated health workers.
“On the obligation to vaccinate health workers to work, Macron followed in the footsteps of Italian law, ”said Palermo. “The medical employees of the National Health System not vaccinated ”, he continues,“ are 0.2% of the total. They continue to be confused with other health professionals. The few who do not do so are moved by prejudices that absolutely do not take into account the reality of the facts. We need to return hospitals to ordinary normality because there is also an epidemic of non-sick people Covid“.
“There France has followed the traces of our measures ”, added the Secretary of Assomed. “In Italy there is no vaccination obligation, but a suitability for service. The safety of care has become a constituent part of the right to health, so if a doctor does not want to get vaccinated has no obligation, only that it becomes unsuitable for the service, especially in the departments and services where it is in contact with the public. If a doctor or nurse is unsuitable for the service they should be moved to other duties where possible. If a declination to other duties is not possible, a mechanism similar to that approved by Macron is triggered: one suspension from service. I get a little angry when I read in the newspapers that there are 400 doctors who reject the vaccine, confusing health workers with doctors. Employees of the SSN unvaccinated are, as mentioned before, a small minority: 0.1-0.2% of 130 thousand ”.
Regarding the possibility of transmission of the virus even with the vaccine, Palermo declared: “It is the large numbers that give the certainty, that then there may be a remote possibility of transmission of the virus even with the vaccine there is no doubt, but this is not a valid reason to refuse it. . The vaccine must be done because we protect ourselves and others. We need to get hospitals back to ordinary normality because we can’t occupy hospitals forever with Covid patients. This is the vision we must have: not individualistic, but collective ”.
