The BBC is reporting that Spain's Health Minister has said that the Government intends to set up a register of all those who refuse to take the vaccine and will share it with other European Union States. Senor "Salvador Illa said the list would not be made accessible to the public or to employers." The report states that the Minister "It is not a document which will be made public and it will be done with the utmost respect for data protection." He added: "People who are offered a therapy that they refuse for any reason, it will be noted in the register... that there is no error in the system, not to have given this person the possibility of being vaccinated."
