Some 1,100 doctors and dentists are under suspension because they have not been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Some 290 got their suspension lifted because they went ahead and got vaccinated.
About 500 doctors have appealed their suspension and are being allowed to continue practice until a final decision is reached.
The federation’s web site lists the names of 363 doctors or dentists who have died of COVID-19.
According to the National Federation of Doctors, its president Filippo Anelli stressed Friday that those who aren’t vaccinated are a minority of the federation’s 460,000 members (less than 1%) and indicated “many are currently correcting their status” through vaccination.
