The Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE) will ask the government chaired by Pedro Sánchez that the vaccine against Covid-19 be mandatory for workers in public and private companies.
The announcement was made during a conference attended by the president of Foment, Josep Sánchez Llibre and the vice president of the CEOE, Íñigo Fernández de Mesa.
So far, since the vaccination against coronavirus began at the end of 2019, the vaccine has not been mandatory in Spain. The latest data provided by the Ministry of Health headed by Carolina Darias indicate that 70,587,034 million doses of the Sars-CoV-2 vaccine have been administered in Spain, representing 93.3% of the doses delivered.
Fernando Simón, director of the Center for Coordination and Health Alerts and Emergencies, said in early August that the covid-19 vaccine was not required. ” The current coverage we have does not require any legislative act to force vaccination, “he said before reaching 70% of the vaccinated population. The figure is now almost 90 per cent.
The Minister of Health also ruled out that the vaccine against Covid-19 was mandatory. He explained that the goal was to continue vaccinating “the more people the better” to get more coverage.
