Vaccination obligation: the Codes association sides with “rebel” doctors
“We must listen to the protest of health workers: forward with action against the vaccination obligation”. This is the position of the Codes association, which protects the rights of citizens / consumers, on the quarrel concerning health professionals and the obligation to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
An imposition harshly criticized by the association, which has decided to challenge the provision and, at the same time, to launch a legal aid campaign for those who do not intend to get vaccinated.
“The suspension by law from the exercise of the health profession and from the performance of work for health professionals who do not want to undergo the vaccine is a disproportionate decision as well as serious – he declares Ivano Giacomelli, National Secretary of Codes – because on the one hand it denies the individual’s freedom of choice and on the other does not take into account the reasons that lead health workers not to get vaccinated “.
“This is not a no vax battle, but a critical position taken by professionals who, instead of being punished, should be listened to by the various Medic Orders.the. We are talking about vaccines approved at the end of a particular process, which we could define extraordinary compared to traditional procedures, and instead of taking them into account, considering the adverse phenomena that unfortunately continue to occur, it was decided to make the vaccine mandatory, putting health personnel at a crossroads: either you run the risk or you will be suspended “.
“It is simply absurd, as well as profoundly serious and unfair. For this reason we have decided to provide legal assistance to those who do not want to undergo the Covid19 vaccine, to those who ask to be able to choose freely in the face of more than legitimate doubts about vaccination, and for this we have decided to challenge yet another measure dropped from above which ignores basic rights, such as that of freedom of choice “.
