The Bundeswehr is currently helping, among other things, in the flood areas in Germany. Now the demand for a corona vaccination for the soldiers is loud.
Berlin – The Armed Forces Commissioner Eva Högl calls for a corona vaccination for all Bundeswehr soldiers. “Since Covid-19 will keep us busy for the foreseeable future,” she advocates including immunization against the coronavirus in the catalog of so-called tolerated vaccinations, said the SPD politician spark– Saturday newspapers.
Bundeswehr Commissioner: “Many would like Covid-10 vaccination”
The “tolerance obligation” means that the soldiers are obliged to have certain vaccinations carried out to ensure that the troops are operational. So far, protection against influenza has been one of the “tolerated” vaccinations, but the Ministry of Defense only stipulates vaccination against the coronavirus for soldiers who go into action, as Högl explained.
During her troop visits, she experienced “a high level of willingness among our soldiers to be vaccinated,” said the military commissioner. “Many would prefer a Covid 19 vaccination today rather than tomorrow.” (AFP / frs)
