HUMAN RIGHTS AND ETHICS IN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. THE PHENOMENON OF "VACCINATION AT THE SINK" IN ROMANIA
The increase in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases (Covid-19) at various stages of the pandemic, as well as the success of several waves, have highlighted the need to take action to ensure the safety of human health and to adapt the strategies so that the measures taken are as effective as possible. This paper aims to address key issues regarding the ethical challenges generated by the distribution and administration of the anti-Covid vaccine and from the perspective of fundamental human rights, considering the right to health. The work ends with a case study from the Romanian space regarding the violation of ethical and legal norms in the administration of the vaccine by "vaccination at the sink".
