The SPD and FDP in the federal government are against compulsory corona vaccination – at least a general one. The virologist Christian Drosten apparently has doubts that Germany can cope with the pandemic like this.
Berlin – The neighboring country Austria is now resorting to the general compulsory vaccination in an emergency. “There won’t be,” said Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD) categorically, regarding the introduction of a corona vaccination requirement in this country. “Because we don’t consider it necessary, because we also consider it difficult from a constitutional point of view.”
The number of infections in Germany in the pandemic is by no means much more encouraging. The positioning of the traffic light parties in the question of mandatory vaccination therefore led the virologist Christian Drosten to warn immediately in a tweet. “Nothing can replace an almost complete closing of the vaccination gaps,” emphasized the institute director at the Berlin Charité. “If you haven’t got it, you haven’t got it yet.” He linked a newspaper article about Maas’ statement.
“Boosters” could calm the incidence in winter, but with the current loophole, Germany would not get into the endemic situation, Drosten also wrote.
There is no substitute for an almost complete closing of the vaccination gaps. If you haven’t got it, you haven’t got it yet. Boosters calms down the incidence in winter, but with the current vaccination gap we do not get into the endemic situation. https://t.co/MehDrAWdoI

Dispute about the compulsory corona vaccination: Aschenberg-Dugnus goes to Söder
The FDP health politician Christine Aschenberg-Dugnus, in turn, criticized Bavaria’s Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) for being open to (partial) corona vaccination. Such a “threatening backdrop” does not help anyone. “Especially the countries with dramatic Corona numbers should concentrate on expanding the vaccination offers as agreed and implementing the new Corona measures,” she said image-Saturday newspaper.
In Austria, a new lockdown will begin on Monday (November 22nd), which will also affect vaccinated people and will last for a maximum of 20 days. In addition, everyone in Austria must be fully vaccinated against Corona on February 1st – otherwise, there is a risk of fines. The statewide 7-day incidence in the country was last over 1000.
New survey on general compulsory corona vaccination with clear results
