Georgiadis: All the Measures Aim to Not Disrupt the Lives of Vaccinated Citizens

November 10, 2021

ATHENS – Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis on Wednesday confirmed the possibility of additional restrictions for the unvaccinated, depending on epidemiological conditions, while speaking to SKAI TV on Wednesday.

Asked if the unvaccinated might potentially be barred from going to restaurants, bars and cafes or required to get tested every day, Georgiadis said that all these measures could possibly be applied if conditions worsen.

He ruled out a general lockdown, however, saying that the aim of all the measures examined by the government is to not disrupt the lives of vaccinated citizens, who may become infected but do not face the risk of dying.

He expressed satisfaction with the implementation of the new measures, saying they helped galvanise more people into getting vaccinated and led to hundreds of first dose vaccination appointments.

On making vaccinations mandatory, he said that, apart for people working in healthcare, no country in Europe has imposed obligatory vaccination, adding that a democratic state can’t force someone to get vaccinated.
