On New Year’s Eve, Rospotrebnadzor is preparing a present for us: fines for refusing to vaccinate. Head of Department Anna Popova said that the experience of different countries fining citizens for not wanting to be vaccinated is now being studied: “Let’s see how effective and applicable it is,” she said.

True, it is not very clear whether they are studying the experience of fining citizens for refusing to vaccinate as such, or are we talking specifically about COVID-19 vaccines? And this is the most interesting.

Because in Italy, for example, for refusing mandatory vaccinations, you are fined 500 euros. Yes, there are fines! Children are not admitted to schools and kindergartens. But we are talking only about mandatory vaccinations, like tetanus and polio. The COVID-19 vaccine is not included in this list. Accordingly, the population is vaccinated on a voluntary basis, with the exception of physicians. According to government decree, they must be vaccinated against the coronavirus without fail.

Let’s see what’s in France. There, vaccination against COVID-19 is mandatory for all paramedics, firefighters and nursing home workers. If a person working in these areas does not have a QR code confirming that he has been vaccinated, a negative test or a certificate of coronavirus, then for the first time he will be fined 135 euros, in case of a repeated violation – 1500 euros, and for the third time and they can plant. Note that they are punished not for refusing to be vaccinated, but for the lack of a document confirming that a person does not pose a risk of infection.

In Belgium, only one vaccination is required – against polio. Vaccination against coronavirus infection is exclusively voluntary.

In Germany, people are fined for refusing to get vaccinated against measles. For refusal without medical advice, you will have to pay 2500 euros. Vaccination against COVID-19 is voluntary. True, if a person is not vaccinated and falls ill, the employer will not reimburse his salary. In Germany, this measure is probably effective. But in Russia, many work on a contract basis or are self-employed. They don’t get sick leave at all.

In Singapore, for refusing mandatory vaccinations for children, parents can not only be fined, but also imprisoned. Vaccination against coronavirus infection, as in many other countries, is optional.

But in Indonesia, all citizens are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Failure to do so will result in a fine of approximately $357.

In some countries, for example, in Austria, vaccination against coronavirus infection is only planned to be made mandatory. The Austrian authorities put it on the national calendar from February 2022. And already faced with mass protests.

In general, if you start to study the international experience of vaccination against covid, then it turns out a lot of interesting things that are happening contrary to what is being intensively planted in Russia.
“What is accepted by Parliament is lawful,” reminds lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky.

“Anything can become legal if Parliament votes accordingly. I think that things like fines for not vaccinating should only be introduced by law. Another thing, we have a law that the drawbar, as you turn, it happened. Legal does not mean correct and effective. Doesn’t even mean it’s useful. In practice, the decision taken can be harmful and very harmful. The effectiveness of such a measure as fines for refusing to be vaccinated, in my opinion, will not even be zero, but will go into the red.

Agranovsky recalled that we still do not have objective statistics on the negative consequences of the use of domestic vaccines and on mortality. And for imported vaccines, it is.

– Rospotrebnadzor, of course, can study the experience of other countries. But it should be borne in mind that any new tightening of the screws will be perceived by the population as a mockery of them. So it would be better if he studied the negative experience of optimizing medicine. Look how many infectious diseases hospitals have been closed! People who should be in separate boxes lie in general wards and die from nosocomial infections. The arrival of the doctor at home for three days waiting. Getting sick in our country is a disaster.

Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Pavel Vorobyov I am convinced that coercive measures, such as fines, will only aggravate the situation:

“Introducing fines for refusing to vaccinate will only increase the cost of fake vaccination certificates, but will not encourage people to get vaccinated – rather, it will further discourage it. Because when raped, people resist.
To be honest, the appeal of our officials to world experience is frightening. You never know who they decide to take an example from!

Here’s the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte promised to imprison people who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. And he said that he would personally inject the vaccine into the ass of each arrested person. And in April 2020, he allowed the police to shoot to kill violators of the lockdown announced in the country. Duterte also became famous for threatening to introduce martial law in the country if one of the local politicians dares to object to him. And called Pope “son of a bitch” because traffic jams formed during the visit of the pontiff to the Philippines. True, he periodically apologizes for such pearls, and our leaders are not used to admitting their mistakes. Therefore, domestic excesses with distortions have much more serious consequences than similar measures in foreign countries.
