So here we go.Galicia may force to be vaccinated with fines of up to 60,000 euros for those who refuse
The Xunta's bill, approved this Tuesday, understands the refusal of the injection as a "minor infraction." That is, in most cases, people who skip this indication will have to pay between 1,000 and 3,000 euros of fine. However, the text leaves a possibility for this to become a "serious" infringement. This is where the sums can grow.
Galicia may force to receive the vaccine. The Government of Núñez Feijóo has managed to approve a new bill on Tuesday, which has been in the making since last November , and which establishes the legal framework so that, in case of need, vaccination can be forced.
The amendment has gone ahead with 41 votes from the Popular Party, which holds the absolute majority in the Galician Parliament . Instead, there are 32 votes against, specifically, the Socialist Party of Galicia and the BNG.
In this way, a new framework of measures is collected to deal with the coronavirus, among which multiple sanctions stand out for not wearing a mask, making a bottle or, as the text already warned, establishing the vaccine against the disease as mandatory.
With respect to this last section, in the document published by the Xunta, non-vaccination is classified within the section of "minor offenses". That is, not giving the injection , in most cases (and as long as the health authorities consider it to be so), will imply a penalty ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 euros . And it is defined as follows: "Unjustified refusal to submit to preventive measures, consisting of vaccination or immunization prescribed by the health authorities, in accordance with established in this law."
Now, despite the fact that this section in the vast majority of cases is considered mild, there is a point at which the penalty could be visibly higher . As stated in the text, in the section on "serious offenses", it is established that the refusal to undergo the injection could be included "when they may pose a risk or serious harm to the health of the population , provided that they do not constitute an offense. very serious". That is, under this assumption, not getting vaccinated would imply a fine of between 3,001 and 60,000 euros.
The problem is that at no time is it specified what type of actions would carry this greater penalty. Although in the "very serious" infractions section it can be read that a health worker who is not quarantined can achieve a very high sanction, with regard to non-vaccination the ideas are not so clear . Even so, the simple fact that refusing the injection involves any kind of legal reprimand is a precedent.
In this sense, as the law has so far, and as the Ministry of Health has defended on various occasions, the vaccine should not be mandatory. But the absolute majority headed by Feijóo in the Galician Parliament has given rise to this bill being approved this Tuesday. And, as in all these cases, the new measure will come into force in the next 24 hours , once it is published in the Official Gazette of Galicia.
