HeadlineJan 18, 2022

The government of Greece on Monday ordered a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for people 60 years and older. Anyone flouting the mandate will face fines of more than $100 per month.

In Serbia, top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic has arrived in Belgrade after he was deported from Australia Sunday for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and lying on his Australian travel declaration form. France’s health ministry said Monday Djokovic won’t be able to participate in the French Open tournament in May unless he completes his vaccinations.
