Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn believes that special rights should not be introduced in Germany for people who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus. Whereas the CEO of the World Medical Association, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, believes that the authorities can and should influence the vaccination process.
The Federal Minister of Health does not consider that vaccinated German residents should be given special rights. “Many residents of the country, showing solidarity, are waiting for their turn to be vaccinated, so that some at risk can be vaccinated first. Therefore, it is legitimate that those who have not yet been vaccinated expect the vaccinated to show patience and understanding, also as a sign of solidarity, ”Spahn said in an interview with the Funke media group. “The requirement for any special rights, until every citizen of the country has the opportunity to get vaccinated, should not be nominated.” Solidarity and mutual respect lead to the cohesion of the nation. “Together we are fighting the pandemic – and only together can we overcome it.”
Over the weekend, Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer also spoke out against the introduction of special rights for the vaccinated. Health expert Karl Lauterbach is of the same opinion. Such privileges are “impossible to control and difficult to justify,” he said. The expert does not exclude that those who have already been vaccinated could nevertheless infect others with the corona virus.
On the other hand, the CEO of the World Medical Association, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, believes that in the long term, granting special rights to vaccinated residents of the country is quite possible. “At present, when vaccination cannot be offered to everyone, such a settlement is out of the question,” says Montgomery, but later, when everyone will have the opportunity to get vaccinated and more information about the immunity present in those who have been vaccinated will be available. solutions are quite possible.
Montgomery recalled that some countries prohibit entry to people who have not been vaccinated against jaundice. Another example is the compulsory measles vaccination law introduced in Germany for admission to kindergarten.
