compulsory vaccinations are needed in democracies – The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the compulsory vaccinations can be considered necessary in democratic societies, in a historic ruling after a appeal presented by some Czech families against the vaccination obligation decided by the State.

“The measures can be considered necessary in a democratic society”, reads the ruling of the Court which confirms that the health policy of the Czech Republic has been consistent with “the best interests “of children and does not violate the right to respect for private life.

The legislation, at the center of the appeal, concerns “vaccines administered against childhood diseases well known to medical science, namely diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hemophilus infections of influenza type b, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, rubella and – for children with specific health claims – pneumococcal infections.

According to the experts the ruling could also have implications for any mandatory vaccination policy for Covid.
