After Italy became the first country in Europe to decide to make vaccination, negative testing or convalescent detection mandatory for all workers in the private and public sectors, the number of immunizations is growing.

According to Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, the government commissioner in charge of the vaccination campaign, a 35 percent increase in bites was reported Saturday compared with the previous week. 40.8 million – or 75.64 percent of Italians over the age of 12 – have been vaccinated.

The government of Prime Minister Mario Draghi had decided on Thursday to extensively expand the green passport. Anyone who can’t produce a certificate will no longer be allowed to go to work in offices, government agencies, stores or restaurants from Oct. 15. With the measure Draghi wants to put pressure on vaccination opponents and doubters.

Violations of the rules are to be severely punished: Those who do not have a green passport – which includes the EU Corona certificate – and therefore do not show up for work may be given time off without pay – in public institutions after five days, in the private sector immediately. In some areas, such as schools, the green pass is already mandatory. Employers who fail to carry out checks face fines of up to 1,500 euros.

The new decree will apply from October 15 to December 31. Until the end of the year, the Corona emergency is still officially in force in Italy.
