Immunization certificate has already been approved by the Federal Senate with the approval of two proposals; contrary to the matter, Congresswoman Bia Kicis speaks of ‘preserving the rights of the population’
A Constitution and Justice Commission gives Chamber of Deputies will discuss the legality of vaccine passport against Covid-19. Two proposals have already passed the approval of the Federal Senate: the digital card and the certificate of immunization and health security. The president of the CCJ, deputy Kicis Beer (PSL), talks about preserving the rights of the population. “Forcing people to be vaccinated, going over fundamental rights and guarantees, including international treaties, human rights,” said the congresswoman, who participated in a public hearing of the Chamber’s Social Security and Family Commission. Author of the initiative, Deputy Chris Tonietto (PSL) intends to prevent the progress of the texts approved in the Senate. “The Constitution has been torn apart. Our principles, which are constitutional rights, are being violated”, he said.
The hearing was also attended by doctors and health experts. The professor at the University of São Paulo, Paulo Zanoto, disagrees with the models being discussed in the National Congress. “Adults are being treated like children and exposed to a state-led attitude. This is absurd”, he stated. Parliamentarians in favor of the vaccine passport did not participate in the discussion. In São Paulo, the mayor Ricardo Nunes published a decree establishing the requirement of proof of vaccination for all events with more than 500 people from this Wednesday, 1st. Initially, the measure would also be valid for shops, bars and restaurants.
