In Belgium, during the hearings in the parliament, the epidemiologist Marius Gilbert (ULB) offered a mandatory vaccination choice despite of the compulsory vaccination against the COVID-19 variant.
Moreover, the compulsory vaccination choice indicates that if the individual does not want to get vaccinated, then they have to visit a doctor of their own preference during a free consultation.
The epidemiologist mentioned, “If the rate of the vaccination against the Delta variant has been 100 percent, the significance of the vaccine is showing a declining trend which is not might be sufficient. This is the important lesson to keep in mind.”
Gilbert further stated that there is the majority of the people who are not willing to have the vaccination against the COVID-19 as well as they want to receive the benefits that the vaccines are providing. However, the compulsory vaccination choice can help the person who does not want to get vaccinated and will be required to have a conversation for the consultancy from the doctors of their choosing.
Along with this, it will provide the opportunities to the doctors to talk about the benefits of the vaccination so that they can make the person clear about the immunization, “By this way, the doctor can work on the risk of the single patient will take into consideration.”
He said, “In addition, there will be less load on the individual as well as their environment. By the medical environment, the maximum number of the weak citizens will be will came into the track.”
The Economist Mathias Dewatripont was invited to speak at the parliament, he liked the idea that was offered by the epidemiologist, “Like the way, we can get into the contact to the un-vaccinated people who have not much informed as well as the person who does not have the contact with the health system.”
