While the government is preparing a bill to make vaccination against Covid-19 compulsory for caregivers, 96 doctors have signed a forum to call for compulsory vaccination for health professionals. “Because it is an ethical duty to protect the vulnerable people for whom they are responsible, all caregivers must be vaccinated”, is it written in a text published on July 4 by the Sunday newspaper (subscribers article). Among the signatories, the infectious disease specialist Karine Lacombe, the emeritus professor of diabetology at the CHU Pitié-Salpêtrière André Grimaldi or the head of the infectious diseases department of the Tenon hospital in Paris, Gilles Pialoux.
The signatories call on the government to make vaccination compulsory for “any person who, in a public or private prevention or care establishment or body, or housing the elderly, carries out a professional activity exposing him or her persons for whom they are responsible to risks of contamination”. They ask the executive to ensure that this “decision be effective before the beginning of September”.
