Workers will have to show the “green pass”.

Italy is the first western country in which it is required to be vaccinated to go to work.

The Italian government approved this Thursday a decree that makes it mandatory for all workers to have a “green pass” the covid certificate, which shows that someone has received at least one dose of the vaccine or has had the disease.

If they do not agree to be vaccinated, the worker will have to undergo a diagnostic test – which must be negative – every two days, and which will be reflected in the “green pass”.

The measure is a novelty in Europe and is a one of the strictest in the world. Tajikistan and Turkmenistan are among the few examples where vaccination is mandatory for citizens over 18 years of age.
