Italy Makes Coronavirus Vaccines Mandatory for Everyone Over 50

The bodies are piling up in the streets, folks.

We’re running out of gasoline to burn the corpses.

It’s time for more drastic measures.


Italy on Wednesday made COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for people from the age of 50, one of very few European countries to take a similar steps, in an attempt to ease pressure on its health service and reduce fatalities.

The measure is immediately effective and will run until June 15.

Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s government had already made vaccination mandatory for teachers and health workers, and since October last year all employees have had to be vaccinated or show a negative test before entering the workplace.

Refusal results in suspension from work without pay, but not dismissal.

Wednesday’s decree toughens this up for workers over the age of 50 by removing the option of taking a test rather than vaccination. It was not immediately clear what the sanction would be for those flouting the rule, effective from Feb 15.

You’ll be able to get around these mandates for a while, I’m sure.

But the loopholes will be closed.

A decision time is coming.

This is going to happen in every country.

And all of you are going to have to make very hard decisions.
