  • The Liberal Party does not - unlike its regional chair for health care in Stockholm - want to make it possible to fire people working in health care who refuse to get vaccinated against covid-19.

  • Only hours after such a proposal was put forward by Anna Starbrink, member of Stockholm's regional executive committe, the party's national secretary Juno Blom told Swedish Radio this is not Liberal Party policy.

  • Instead, the Liberals want to transfer those who are not vaccinated into other jobs, whilst trying to motivate people to take the vaccine.
