Greece Extends Vaccine Mandate for Health Workers

ATHENS – The obligatory vaccination of staff in private and public healthcare facilities has been extended until December 2022, according to a regulation included in a Health Ministry draft law for the approval of a new Stavros Niarchos Foundation donation to the Hospital of Sparti.

Also extended, until June 2022, was the mandatory requirement to present a certificate of vaccination or illness for those employed in the public and the private sector, the operation of the vaccination centres, the provision of vaccinations against the novel coronavirus by the National Health System, the national campaign for vaccination against the coronavirus, the integration of private doctors in the national vaccination programme, the deadline for hiring supplementary medical, nursing and support staff, the measure for staff transfers and the compensation of private clinics whose beds were requisitioned to cover the emergency public health needs due to the surge in COVID-19.


ATHENS - With no trace after 12 years of a retired Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff who vanished while hiking on the island of Amorgos, volunteers arrived in Greece from California to help in the search and baffling mystery.
