He said that the government is making vaccinations mandatory through enactments.

He pointed out that the compensation for all economic expenses of the relatives for the purchase of medicines, intensive care and the funeral should be granted.

The leader ratified the motion to repeal Decrees 4640 and 4641 – which require vaccination cards to be presented for travel and access to public and private facilities – and the resignation of Health Secretary Jeyson Auza, otherwise they will take pressures such as roadblocks.

“We ratify and we are very sure to call for the repeal of Supreme Decree 4641 and the resignation of the Minister of Health. It still stands because he made a mistake in several things,” said Siñani.
