– : A note dated February 8 made vaccination mandatory for residents and staff working in the world’s smallest state. Penalties can theoretically be waived.
Many countries or regions have introduced compulsory vaccinations for certain types of populations:

– : The government announced on June 16 that it would make full corona virus vaccination compulsory for all working in English retirement homes, including non-medical staff such as hairdressers, beauticians and volunteers, who will have to be fully vaccinated by October if they wish to continue working there. Parliament has not yet approved the move.
– : On May 16, the mayor of Moscow ordered a mandatory vaccination of employees in the service sector if President Vladimir Putin opposes a duty at the national level. About 60% of them, or about two million people, should be vaccinated by August 15. Since then, other local companies, including St. Petersburg and its environs, have taken similar steps.
– : On July 1, the country ordered compulsory vaccination of most employees in contact with others. Those who refuse injections will be barred from communicating with customers or other persons.
– : The city of San Francisco announced on June 23 that it was asking about 35,000 employees, including police and firefighters, to be vaccinated against COVID-19. However, this requirement will not take effect until the vaccines are fully approved by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (FDA).
In addition, more than 150 staff at one of Texas’ largest hospitals have been laid off or resigned after refusing to be vaccinated against Govt-19. Some staff had complained against the hospital, but the complaint was dismissed.
– : The obligation has not yet been finalized, but the government is working on a bill to make it compulsory for caregivers to be vaccinated, while the vaccination rate for caregivers is 57% in nursing homes and 64% in nursing homes.

In some countries, the duty is not formal, but the restrictions for the undeclared are similar to a semi-duty:

– : From July 1, the province of Balochistan in southwest Pakistan has banned access to public services, parks, shopping malls and public transport.
