COVID-19: Spain must keep register of those who refuse vaccine, EU sub-plan

Spain is compiling a register of people who refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine and will share it with other member states of the European Union, the country’s health minister Salvador Illa told broadcaster La Sexta said.

The whole picture: Spain becomes the fourth European nation to surpass 50,000 deaths from coronavirus on Monday, after the United Kingdom, Italy and France, according to Johns Hopkins. This has been confirmed by almost 1.9 million cases. Illa said vaccinations are free and not mandatory. Data on those who refuse vaccination will not be made public “and this will be done with the utmost respect for data protection,” he added.
