The French Legislative Body Has Approved a Measure Mandating COVID-19 Vaccinations in Order to Enter Businesses and Restaurants
Department stores and shopping malls with a high risk of contamination, restaurants, sites that provide vital products and services, and some transportation services are among the restricted social venues.
The bill was enacted by the Senate in order to combat COVID-19 by enacting measures that combine societal aspirations for participation in diverse activities with the need to restrict viral transmission in France and account for the national effort in favour of vaccination.
The law, for example, extends the health crisis management system until December 2021, raises the penalty for failing to comply with limitations, and expands the use of solitary confinement for individuals who contract COVID-19. Similarly, the bill also mandates vaccination for people working in the health and medical-social sectors, with penalties for non-compliance.
The bill also provides compensation to the National Office for Compensation for Medical Accidents, Iatrogenic Diseases, and Nosocomial Infections for damage directly attributable to compulsory vaccination against COVID-19, as well as compensation to the National Office for Compensation for Medical Accidents for damage directly attributable to compulsory vaccination against COVID-19.
Conclusively, it is notable that the measure was passed by the French Prime Minister after the Senate voted 195 to 129 in favor of it and the National Assembly voted 156 to 60 in favour of it.
