Coronavirus, Greece, Mandatory Vaccination, Vaccine

Greek authorities have reported that they will begin to fine some 300,000 people over 60 years of age for not having been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The fines, which are being processed by the Ministry of Digital Governance, will begin to be issued this Tuesday. At the end of the week, the fines will appear on the website of the Greek tax agency.

The law indicates that citizens over 60 years of age who have not been vaccinated before January 17 will be fined 100 euros per month until they are vaccinated (about $115), although the amount of the fine was 50 euros in January.

This will mean that 4,700 health workers will not be able to go to work until March 31 and will risk being subjected to a suspension of employment and salary until the pandemic ends. report
