Greece To Fine Elderly $114 For Every Month They Remain Unvaccinated

Greece has announced the first vaccine mandate targeting the elderly portion of the population. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a televised statement that the Covid-19 vaccine will now be required by law for people 60 years of age and above abd will be fined $114 for every month they remain unvaccinated.

Greece To Fine Elderly $114 For Every Month They Remain Unvaccinated

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis cited the now required national “vigilance” as the emergence of the new Omicron strain has lamented the massive numbers of the still unvaccinated elderly in the country.

But even more surprising are the penalties for non-compliance, which will take effect next year. For each month, citizens over 60 years of age will be fined 100 euros ($114) and up if found without the vaccine, the prime minister said.

In Orwellian fashion Mitsotakis said “It is not a punishment,” but instead, “I would say it is a health fee.” He said that to avoid the fine, “Greeks over the age of 60… must book their appointment for a first jab by January 16,” according to his statement to the cabinet.

He emphasized the demographic situation: “Their vaccination is henceforth compulsory.” Lawmakers will approve it after the parliamentary vote, given that officials have started sounding the alarm over the overstrained health system lately.

The data also show that more than half a million people, who are over 60, have remained unvaccinated. The percentage of vaccinations in Greece is about 63%.

Mitsotakis referred to the ever rising numbers and claimed that while the new mandate “tortured” him, he still felt a “heavy responsibility in standing next to those most vulnerable, even if it might fleetingly displease them”.

Over the course of a year, the fine would sum up to a very hefty 1,200-euros. This is viewed as particularly steep for those over the age of 60 to afford to pay. As Forbes noted, citing Greek media figures:

The fine would represent a “hefty chunk” of the average monthly pension payment, which is about €730 ($830), the outlet reported.

PM Mitsotakis said further in the prepared statements: “Unfortunately, of the 580,000 unvaccinated of our fellow citizens over the age of 60, only 60,000 set up appointments to get vaccinated in November.” 

He added, “But it is mainly people over 60 who require hospital treatment and sadly lose their life. These deaths are unnecessary.”

Left wing opposition Syriza slammed the government for trying to shift the blame of its own failure of handling the pandemic onto the common citizens.

It said in a statement that Athens is now “targeting people over 60 with punitive and financially debilitating measures that haven’t been implemented anywhere else in the world.”

Of course, a fine that is to be assessed on a monthly basis enforced upon the older citizens is unprecedented. It is also unclear on just how the government authorities plan to identify the unvaccinated on a monthly basis.

However, it is very clear that if the drastic policy and law result in increase in the number of vaccinated among the target age group, the European governments would surely take note and subsequently roll out similar measures in their respective countries.

Meanwhile, over a dozen people have been forcibly taken to government isolation centers in Germany, while hundreds are being held in similar centers in Australia as Western countries continue to use mandatory COVID quarantine centers all in the name putting an end to COVID-19.

  1. Oh so, the rich can go unvaccinated? How very typical! Most educated persons, at this point, would have to be insane to agree to the deadly vaccine if they have a choice. The do have a choice, get vaccinated or starve. This plague has not damaged humanity nearly as much as the fascists cracking their choice-destroying whips have. I applaud anyone that stands up to the sham of the COVID vaccines. If the vaccine worked, and was safe, I would say it is a good thing. As it stands, the vaccine not only does not work, but it compromises the immune system by 75% or more, permanently. I would mention the graphene but mentioning it will more than likely get a person killed…..so I won’t mention it. oops lol

    Hey, here’s an idea…how about it the people that are subjected to the fines start a GoFundMe page? Then they can stay safe and not have to worry about the fines.

  2. So , what’s in the water over there in Greece – – every politician gets more bizarre from one to the next ! ……. …….shalom, al jenkins

  3. Fining every man or woman 60+ that’s going against their inalienable rights every man or woman no matter what their age is can not be bought,sold or Transferred. You can also add Coercion is anyone aware that are inalienable rights were sold to every State in every Country World Wide starts from your birth of living however the States register a baby on their BIRTH CERTIFICATE so that every baby then belongs to a Service Corporation. Look at your Birth Certificate, Driver’s Licence, Credit Card and most Bills is your Birth right name all in Capital Letters? This is Dog Latin commonly known as Dead Entity its why Ship Names all have Capital Letters and not sure in the rest of the world Australia has all street names in Capital Letters. Everyone was it ignorant to know better because none of us knew.

    Look at the Judicial System these Judges are working for the Service Corporation and the BAR is their Employer same as Prosecutors and Lawyers. Did you know that Lawyers or Liars do not Represent you they Re-Present you a play on words. If anyone ends up in Court do they address you as your Birth Right name or other legal Names which is not Lawful. You all need to look into Christopher James website https://awarriorcalls.com check out his videos on Rumble currently not one Court in Canada will allow him in their court rooms because he knows how corrupt they really are. I am looking forward to when Christopher is tending to have 100s of Police Officers who found out they now Policy Officers where they should be Peace Officers. Wait until destroys Covid 19 in a Public Court House using Jury of his peers the Prime Minister of Canada and everyone else involved in the Covid 19 Plandemic will be asked 4 questions and everyone will be No they will all be arrested and possibly some executed. When happens in Canada the rest of the World is next. I am glad on the right side with this one and will Not Comply to anything with the Covid 19 Plandemic Narrative!

  4. Law makers everywhere have been coerced by Big Pharma to accept that the only solution are their deadly shots. Greece should take hold of their health care like India and tell Big Pharma that their vaxxes are not the only way to get control of the mythical COVID virus. They signed their autonomy away.
