Spain’s Health Minister has announced on Monday that the country will maintain a record of everyone who refuses the coronavirus vaccine.
According to a report by the AP, Spain’s Health Minister Salvador Illa noted that the record is only to ensure that everyone was given the opportunity of receiving the vaccination and that there are no “system errors.” However, he also said that they will be providing access of the information to other nations in the European Union.
In an effort to alleviate privacy concerns, the Health Minister stated that the registry will not be made public nor will employers have access to it.
Currently, about one-quarter of Spaniards have said they won’t take the COVID-19 vaccine, down from around half last month, according to a report by Agence France-Presse.
Spain began distributing the vaccine on Sunday.
The country is also imposing a curfew between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. which is expected to remain in place until at least May.
