The corona police station does not recommend carrying out compulsory vaccination against Covid-19, according to the note sent Thursday evening to the members of the consultation committee and to the presidency of the House. Pedro Facon and his team argue instead for the establishment of a “crown certificate“, is it written in this document that Belga was able to consult.

This rate makes it possible to limit serious cases and reduce hospitalizations, recalls the police station.
