Covid-19. Italy introduces compulsory vaccination for those over 50

Faced with sharply rising Covid-19 contagions, the Italian government is toughening its tone against the unvaccinated. Prime Minister Mario Draghi announced on Wednesday to introduce compulsory vaccination for all people over the age of 50.

“We want to slow down the contagion curve and encourage Italians who have not yet been vaccinated to do so,” the head of government explained during the Council of Ministers having adopted this measure, quoted in a press release.

Austria was the first country in the European Union to put forward a measure in this direction. The country announced in November the introduction of compulsory vaccination for all “in March 2022”.
