No privileges for fully vaccinated citizens, says Greek gov’t spokesperson

Greek government spokesperson dismissed a minister’s statements that the government was mulling plans to ease restrictions for people who are fully vaccinated.

“the debate for privileges exclusivelt for those fully vaccinated make no sense unless vaccination platforms are open for all age group,” spokeswoman Aristotelia Peloni said on Monday.

A day earlier, Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis had said that those who have completed their vaccination will be able to visit gyms as of May 17.

His statements were understood as a step in the direction of privileges for inoculated citizens.

At the briefing on Monday, Peloni said that official announcements regarding the end of sms citizens need to send to leave their homes, the curfew and the inter-regional travel are scheduled for upcoming Wednesday, May 12, 2021.

Greece officially open its doors to international tourists on May 15 and this early decision means automatically also the lifting of restrictions for the residents of this country.

    5 more days until ministers stop talking shite.
    Correction….5 more days until ministers stop taking shite about restrictions for Greek citizens whilst tourism is open.

  2. It is not a question of “privilege” in being vaccinated but a matter of SAFETY for all citizens. Neither is it all about oneself. Think about the safety of OTHERS.

  3. I don’t understand the concept that releasing vaccinated people from restrictions is a privilege? Being able to go about your normal daily life is not a privilege it is a right. That right has been temporarily revoked because of the risk posed by COVID-19. I completely support that action. If a vaccinated person or someone who has recovered from COVID no longer poses a risk then their right should be restored. Waiting until everybody is vaccinated makes no sense. The government needs a return to normal economic activity as soon as possible but must continue to protect against the virus until more people are vaccinated. Allowing people who no longer pose a significant risk to become more economically active makes perfect sense.
