Greece Makes COVID-19 Jabs Mandatory for 60+ Years Old; $114 Monthly Fines Imposed on Refusers
Greece is the latest country to enact harsher COVID tyranny against its population.
Instead of proposing policies for all adults, the Greek government targeted a particular age bracket with the latest restriction.
Residents in Greece over 60 now face mandatory COVID-19 jabs or risk monthly extortion.
Unvaccinated Greeks 60 or above will have a 100-euro ($114) monthly fine as punishment for not subjecting themselves to a medical experiment.

Fines of €100 (£85) will be imposed at monthly intervals from mid-January on those who refuse, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said.
The money will go towards the Greek health system, which is struggling with a surge in hospital admissions.
About 63% of Greece’s 11-million population is fully vaccinated, but data show more than 520,000 people over 60 are yet to get the jab.
“Greeks over the age of 60… must book their appointment for a first jab by January 16,” the premier said in a statement to the cabinet.
“Their vaccination is henceforth compulsory.”
While parliamentary must still vote on the measure, it’s expected to pass without difficulty.
Greece has other active COVID-19 restrictions that also impact unvaccinated individuals of younger ages.
Evening Standard notes:
In a bid to curb infections, in November the government barred unvaccinated people from entering indoor spaces including restaurants, cinemas, museums and gyms, even if they had tested negative for the coronavirus.
It comes after Austria became the first country in the world to make vaccines mandatory for its residents.
Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced earlier this month that it would be compulsory for all Austrians to be jabbed from February 1.
How long until other EU nations mandate the COVID-19 jabs for the general population?
