New legislation will be drawn out to clarify the framework surrounding the mandatory vaccination of civil servants, Greek government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni said on Thursday.
Peloni was responding to a question on an earlier statement by Interior Minister Makis Voridis who said that the existing Civil Service Code is enough to send a non-vaccinated employee to the disciplinary board and no new laws will be required.
“Mr. Voridis referred to the current framework for civil servants. The mandatory [vaccination] is a special framework — a new framework will be submitted that will regulate these issues,” she said at a regular press briefing, adding that employees will not be fired for refusing to comply.
