San Marino. Thirty unvaccinated health workers to return to work
“Suspended for four months now, we are thirty health workers belonging to a defined category, during the so-called first wave, even of heroes”.
Thus opens the open letter sent by trensa San Marino health workers who have refused vaccinations and who now find to return to work. “Already then we looked at this definition with distrust – they continue -, we only did our job. Today, having chosen not to vaccinate, we have fallen to the rank of non-people to whom it is possible to deny even the right to carry out one’s profession. Among us there are those who have serum because they have already developed the attributes, those who did it for reasons related to their health conditions – reasons that have not been kept in the slightest consideration – and those who are still simply opposed to inoculating a vaccine. The price of our fidelity to our human dignity and convictions was that of having to give up our profession which is mission and also the fruit of years of hard study and work. We would have wished for our dedication not a reward but the opportunity to be at work to make our contribution – which in a small country like San Marino really makes a difference – to face not only the pan demia but also the serious inefficiencies that certainly do not help people to leave behind a hard period to get out of which also and above all closeness is needed. To be at the side of the weakest and do our job, we health professionals have repeatedly proposed to work in compliance with safety measures, adequately wearing PPE and subjecting ourselves in good faith to periodic checks that immediately demonstrate our health condition, by exhibiting a negative antigen test every 48 hours at the expense, a possibility that, although cited by the same decree that suspended us, was promptly denied by the ISS managers. The climate is one where those who make an objection are not considered: their point of view is not discussed but only opposed. We therefore want to get back to having a say and for requests to be the subject of a public debate. It is not possible to think that our fellow citizens are indifferent to a problem that affects everyone and that if not solved seeing will harm everyone “.
