The Italian Association of High School Teachers has asked the government of Mario Draghi to decide on compulsory vaccination for teachers and administrative staff of all schools in the country.
“In order for the schools to reopen in September, under conditions of complete security, the mandatory vaccination of all those who work in them must be decided. This way you will not need to maintain safety distances, which requires – in fact – very large spaces“, Underline the Italian high school principals.
On Thursday, their representatives will meet with the Minister of Education, Patricio Bianchi, to whom, as they said, “will present all their positions on vaccines and teachers».
By the end of the week, the Draghi government is expected to look into the matter and possibly make a decision. Most Italian commentators estimate that mandatory vaccination of teachers and school administrators is increasingly likely.
