To date, the debate has not been resumed in France. This summer, the Academy of Medicine ruled that reintegrating unvaccinated nurses would be “a mistake”. “In total, almost 0.3% of hospital professionals, both nurses and non-nurses, have been suspended since autumn 2021, according to the Fédération Hospitalière de France, which indicates that their reinstatement would not make up for the serious staff shortages at the hospital,” according to the institution .
But in reality, France is not the last country to maintain the suspension of its unvaccinated staff. At his side we find a European country: Greece. If the rule could be further developed in the coming weeks, the country is still inflexible on the issue. In early October, Health Minister Thanos Plevris said on the radio, conveyed by the press: “Unvaccinated health workers have no place in the health system because they don’t believe in science”. If there were to be a reintegration of nursing staff, this would primarily affect “administrative staff”, according to the minister. For the time being, no decision has been made and the suspension deemed constitutional is in effect until December 31, 2022.
