Greece tells people over-60 to get their Covid vaccination or face monthly $100 fine | ITV News

Greece is running out of patience with those who are unvaccinated against Covid-19, but they are not going quietly.

Medical professionals who are unjabbed have been suspended and face the prospect of being sacked if they fail to comply with rules which say they require vaccination.

Protests have been held against the latest government rulings but there is little sympathy in the country for those holding out, who claim its leaders are exaggerating the impact of the pandemic.
