    Galicia to be the first Autonomous Community to impose fines of up to €3,000 on anyone who does not vaccinate against Covid or refuses to take a PCR test

    The President of the Xunta de Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has submitted a proposal to the Partido Popular PP to allow those who do not vaccinate against coronavirus to be vaccinated as soon as the drug becomes available or who refuse to undergo a PCR test.

    The measure will be possible thanks to the reform of the “Lei de Saúde”, which now makes it possible to penalise those who do not comply with the new restrictions on coronavirus or who pose a threat to public health. In this sense, the proposal distinguishes three levels of infringements: the mild level, with penalties ranging from €100 to €300, the serious level, which entails fines ranging from €3,000 to €60,000, and finally the very serious level, which could be increased up to €600,000.

    The proposal, which was registered in the Galician Parliament on Thursday, contains a series of amendments to the “Lei de Saúde” which, in the case of vaccines, consider “unjustified refusal to undergo preventive measures consisting of vaccination” as “an infringement” as required by the health authorities.

    Similarly, sanctions are proposed for anyone who unjustifiably refuses to undergo “a medical examination or to carry out diagnostic tests which have been lawfully prescribed by health professionals or by health authorities for the purposes of detection, monitoring and control”.

    Approval of the proposal is subject to its evaluation in the Galician Parliament, in which the PP has an absolute majority. It is therefore very likely that the measure will receive the green light.

    Although this is news that will cause controversy, the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has said that the introduction of mandatory vaccination “is not recommended”.

    It is therefore expected that other Autonomous Communities will follow suit.
