You may not be a criminal but imagine still being placed on a registry? Not because you committed a criminal act but because you refused to accept the vaccine? Well Spain has created a registry for those who have and will refuse the vaccine to share with other European countries.
And to make matters worse, just like offender registries here in the U.S., the list will be accessible to employers during background checks as well as to the public. Even though Salvador IIIA says it won’t be. In 1947, offender registries were created for criminals initially in the state of California for law enforcement eyes only but made public in 1996. The general public did not realize it was a preview of the things to come.
In an interview with La Sexta television on Monday, Mr Illa emphasised that vaccination would not be mandatory. (At Least not yet)
“What will be done is a register, which will be shared with our European partners… of those people who have been offered it and have simply rejected it,” he said.
“It is not a document which will be made public and it will be done with the utmost respect for data protection.”
He added: “People who are offered a therapy that they refuse for any reason, it will be noted in the register… that there is no error in the system, not to have given this person the possibility of being vaccinated.”
