New Italian Government Plans to End Vaccine Mandate for Health Workers

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.6

Italy’s health officials announced that workers who refused to comply with the country’s vaccine mandate will be reinstated.  “A measure is being finalized that will allow the reintegration into service of health staff subject to suspension proceedings for non-compliance with compulsory vaccination before the expiry date of the suspension,” New Health Minister Orazio Schillaci said on Friday.  Under the former prime minister, Mario Draghi, vaccinations were mandatory, and fines were imposed to the unvaccinated, but these measures have now been removed by the current prime minister, Giorgio Meloni.
