Government’s plans to get the ball rolling on whether the country will be going the route of mandatory vaccinations appear to have missed the deadline for the submission of one key document, which is supposed to inform a series of sectoral and national consultations from next week.

A number of people representing various members of the Social Partnership confirmed yesterday that the promised legal opinion on the controversial subject, which was to be prepared and submitted by August 6, had not been delivered.

According to one source who spoke to the Saturday Sun on the condition of anonymity, with tensions continuously rising each day that  passes without clarity on the issue, the harder it is going to be to achieve consensus eventually.

“We checked our emails right up until the end of business today [yesterday] and nothing came in. I made some calls to few other members of the Social Partnership and they did not receive anything either. I am a bit disappointed that we did not get that opinion today because that document is going to inform our talks going forward if we have any chance of achieving success,” the source said. (CLM)
