Greek High Court OK’s Mandatory COVID Shots for Teachers, Students

ATHENS – Teachers and students in Greece can be required to get COVID-19 vaccinations, Greece’s highest administrative court, The Council of State ruled, upholding a ministerial decision from the New Democracy government.

That applies to primary and secondary schools, said Kathimerini, reporting that the court rejected an appeal by 62 parents and teachers who argued the measure is necessary to protect public health and safety.

The ruling, which is final and cannot be appealed, came as the pandemic is resurging again, the Coronavirus being spread by rabid and sometimes violent anti-vaxxers who either don’t think the pandemic is real or that vaccines are designed to alter their DNA or control their minds.

Only health care workers so far must be vaccinated as Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has backed off his promise to review extending the shots to other sectors as he has turned his attention toward restoring the economy.
