John created the topic: MANDATORY VACCINATION
Dear CSC:


SECTION 12 of RA No. 11525 states that vaccine cards shall not be required as a mandatory additional requirement for employment. It also states that vaccinated individuals are not considered immune from the COVID-19 virus.

(A) If a government agency requires unvaccinated employees to be vaccinated otherwise they may be required to submit a "negative" RT-PCR test result or to comply to additional conditions or be subjected to restrictions, not being required from, or imposed to, vaccinated individuals, will such mandate valid as far as RA No. 11525 and CSC laws, rules and regulations is concerned?

(B) Will it not result to discrimination againts unvaccinated employees?

(C) Is there a substantial distinction between unvaccinated and vaccinated employess with respect to delivery of government service to the public considering that vaccinated employees are also not considered immune from the COVID-19 virus?

(D) Furthermore, can mandatory vaccination be impose to government employess in the absence of a law imposing the same?

Thank you!

Atty. John
