For the Association of Prison Officers (AAP), the vaccination strategy in Luxembourg's prisons leaves a lot to be desired.

The AAP questions why the government decided to only vaccinate prisoners and not the entire prison staff, especially seeing as both the prison management and the Ministry of Justice had voiced their support for this strategy.

The Association points out that inside a prison, a lot of people are confined in a narrow and closed spaced. The National Health Directorate's decision could be a "safety danger", according to AAP. A prison cannot simply close down if a lot of staff members are unavailable for health reasons.
