“It is not a matter of forcing you to be vaccinated, but rather of sensitising you, persuading you, by presenting the benefits of this life-saving act, which in no way, obliges public employees to undergo vaccination, but rather urges them to do it in the interest of their well-being and that of society as a whole” part of the document reads.

Going by the release, the resurgence of the dreadful disease and it’s violent Delta Variant is cause of many deaths amongst people, a tragedy that needs as priority action, the intensification of the vaccination campaign for all personnels on the state payroll.
