(Non) compulsory vaccination: what the courts think

In early October this year, the Ministry of Health approved a list of professions, industries, and organizations whose employees are subject to mandatory preventive vaccinations against COVID-19. The list includes almost all public servants.

Employers were forced to monitor vaccination and suspend the employees in the absence of it. If the employer doesn't comply with these requirements, they will be punished for violating the quarantine rules. In response, workers exercised their right to protection and began to go to court en masse after their suspensions.

In turn, the courts, like the Ukrainians, were divided into two camps: against and for vaccination. This section can be traced in this selection of court decisions with interesting positions on (non) compulsory vaccination.

Дуже слабо як для юриста. А юрист мав би оперувати не літературними воланнями на кшталт "з метою убезпчення інших людей...", а мусів би сказати всім людям прямо: усі постанови і накази легітимні, допоки ніхто не піднімає питання про хибу в самій основі, тобто: епідемії немає. Але скажені державні "юристи", підло підтасували цифри і проголосили стан пандемічної загрози. За що повінні сидіти в тюрмі, а всі їх статки мають буди віддані громадянам, що втратили бізнес і т.п.
