“Is the Italian Green pass compulsory? I have it and Salvini has it too. There is no position of mine against the Green pass and the Lega has approved an amendment, in my opinion correct, for the extension of the green pass from 9 to 12 months ”. He said it Luca Zaia today during the press point from the headquarters of the Civil Protection of Marghera after the split in the majority on the vote against the League in the Social Affairs Committee of the Chamber.
“I do not comment on a possible vaccination obligation – continues the Venetian president -, we need to see how it is structured. In Italy, theoretically, there are 11 mandatory vaccines, then there are those who don’t get them and still don’t get them. We have already lived this experience. I am not aware that other European countries have the obligation to vaccinate against covid. Coming to the obligation is a bit of a social defeat ”. Harsh words, those of the president of the Veneto region Luca Zaia in the aftermath of Prime Minister Draghi’s press conference.
“If a country finds itself adopting the obligation as a health plan it means that there is no awareness. In Veneto – he says – we have thrown our hearts over the obstacle and we have reached 80% of subjects vaccinated voluntarily. It is necessary to see how the obligation is interpreted: it seems to me that it is being talked about in relation to some professional categories. Doctors are obliged to get vaccinated, if they do not get vaccinated, a certain procedure is triggered. I imagine that the first step we will think about will relate to some professional categories “.
“I appeal to the government, to decide quickly for the third dose, as soon as possible” added Zaia, “on September 21st autumn begins and if it is yes for the third dose and for the frail, it means that we must do the focus on nursing homes, and for us there are 30,000 guests. I urge all those who do not belong to the fragile categories to do so now, because if the third dose starts, and from the words of President Draghi it will be, all the others go to the tail of the fragile ones ”.
