Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis just announced mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for ALL Greeks above 60 years of age.
Those who DARE to refuse the jab will have to pay a 100 euro fine ($114 USD) every month.
60-year-olds and above, you say?
Sounds like those are ADULTS that can make their OWN decisions! You would think...
The vaccine mandate excuse came because of the pathetic new Covid variant, Omicron (an anagram for "moronic").
The fines will start on January 16, so Greeks have time to soak in the threat and let the fear, stress, and anxiety grow before giving in – which is exactly what their government wants.
"It is not a punishment," Mitsotakis said. "I would say it is a health fee."
The vaccination rate in Greece in this age group is about 83%, which sounds like a high number to me but I'm not a scientist (or an authoritarian dictator).
"I felt a duty to stand by the most vulnerable, even if it might temporarily displease them," the PM said.
It's all for their own good, you see!
Mitsotakis described the policy as "an act of justice for the vaccinated," and he hopes it is seen as an act of "encouragement, not repression."
Vaccine mandates, fines for not complying.
Sure, what could go wrong???
