The socialist and related group’s bill to make vaccination against Covid-19 compulsory was rejected on October 6 in the Senate.
Examined this October 6 in the Social Affairs Committee, the socialist group’s bill concerning compulsory vaccination in the general population against Covid-19 was finally rejected.
The elected officials concerned proposed an amendment by rapporteur Bernard Jomier submitting a fixed fine of 135 euros in the event of refusal to submit to the vaccination. After three verbalizations over a period of 30 days, this fine would be increased to 1,500 euros for repeated offenses. Vaccination is the “only way to achieve sufficient collective protection” and “to transform the epidemic into a low noise phenomenon with possible seasonal resurgences, while reconciling the imperative of public health protection and treatment. equality of our fellow citizens ”, insisted Bernard Jomier in the conclusion of his report.
“We must continue to increase vaccination coverage, without going to this obligation”, explained at the end of the meeting the president of the commission, Catherine Deroche (LR), who prefers to continue to “convince”. Reacting after the rejection of his amendment at the microphone of Public Senate, Bernard Jomier felt that everyone should take their responsibilities in the face of the epidemic. If he recognizes that “the answer is not simple”, this general practitioner regrets not having received any counter-proposals, after the rejection of his text. “If the alternative is to continue the health pass until July 2022, even with a review clause in February, I fear that this will be ineffective in stopping a winter wave”, he added. lamented.
