In his first press conference since assuming the top judicial post in April, Gesmundo said that all justices had been completely inoculated against the coronavirus disease.

The justices were either in their 50s or 60s.

All members of the Court have been completely vaccinated. I think all of us have completed the second jab,” Gesmundo said.

Gesmundo also said that the Supreme Court wanted to ensure that the judiciary will continue to administer justice without sacrificing the safety and health of its personnel.

The national government prioritized the vaccination of senior citizens (A2) and individuals with comorbidities (A3).
