A decree, published in August 2021, made it mandatory for all municipal public servants to be fully vaccinated against the new coronavirus, as a measure to face the pandemic.
The prefecture informed that the server can be exempted from vaccination, if there is medical justification, supported by a certificate and confirmed by medical expertise.
However, according to the municipality, anyone who refuses to receive vaccination, without just cause, commits a health infraction, which may result in the application of administrative measures, including those of a disciplinary nature provided for by law.
“The disciplinary administrative process is conducted by the Disciplinary Administrative Process Commission of the Municipal Attorney General’s Office, for investigation, observing the contradictory, the full defense and due legal process”, informed the city hall.
