There is no compulsory vaccination in Germany. However, Jens Spahn explains that the course will be set during this time, how strong Corona will still have the country under control in autumn.
Berlin – To what extent will Germany have overcome the corona pandemic * this autumn? Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn makes possible renewed restrictions in the next cold season dependent on the progress made in immunizing the population. “We are now deciding how autumn will be, how winter will be thanks to the vaccination campaign,” the CDU politician told RTL and n-tv on Friday.
The 41-year-old made an appeal to the citizens’ sense of responsibility: “Each individual decides,” said the Union politician. If you are wondering how long you have to wear an FFP2 protective mask * in facilities such as local public transport, shops or at work, Spahn gave the indirect answer: With a vaccination rate of over 70 percent, only “basic measures” such as distance and Masks are needed, he explained.
Corona: equal rights for not vaccinated? “We can’t, we don’t have to”
With regard to further easing, it will play a role whether someone is vaccinated against corona or not. “We cannot and do not have to impose the same restrictions on someone who is vaccinated as someone who is not vaccinated,” said the minister.
Bavaria’s Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) had recently made a similar statement. He would also like to create vaccination options in unusual places and spoke about prospects with an increasing vaccination rate, for example for visiting clubs or bars.
Office colleague Bodo Ramelow (left), who recently amazed with a peculiar music video *, campaigned for an end to the corona measures. “Anyone who wants to can be vaccinated in the near future,” he said in an interview with the mirror. “We should return to normal in the fall – also with the recognition of variants that are spreading more aggressively.”
Corona vaccination: Almost 50 million German citizens vaccinated at least once
Nevertheless, compulsory vaccinations will not be introduced in Germany for the time being:
In the meantime, around 45 percent of the total population in Germany has apparently been completely vaccinated against the corona virus. According to the Robert Koch Institute, 736,361 vaccine doses were administered across the country on Thursday. This means that by July 15, around 37.7 million citizens would have received both vaccinations. 49.5 million people in this country have already received at least one vaccination, which corresponds to around 60 percent.
