Markus Söder: Vaccination gives security and creates freedom

Berlin - Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) has again advertised vaccination against the corona virus. “Vaccination gives security and vaccination creates freedom. You protect yourself and others,” wrote the CSU politician on Twitter on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, he had already announced that he wanted to adopt further restrictions for unvaccinated people in his state. In the future, only those who have been vaccinated and recovered should have access to shops and outdoor restaurants. This does not include purchases for everyday needs. He also advocated the exclusion of spectators from sporting events.

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD) considers compulsory vaccination to be inevitable. Despite all the advertising, not enough people would have volunteered to be vaccinated against the corona virus. The consequence is the excessive fourth wave of infections. "Many who have had themselves vaccinated, who can now be boosted and stick to the rules, are totally frustrated," explained Schwesig.

Vaccination refusals could face a fine
The FDP member of the Bundestag and physician Andrew Ullmann is also calling for a vaccination. The liberals see themselves not only as a party of freedom, but also as a party of responsibility, he said on Deutschlandfunk. As soon as there is a threat of overloading the health system, it will be "over with voluntariness".

The designated Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann (FDP) meanwhile gave an outlook on what vaccination refusals have to expect when deciding whether to vaccinate. There was "a broad consensus among constitutional lawyers that it would not be permissible to force people to be vaccinated," he emphasized to the editorial network in Germany. A violation of the vaccination requirement would probably be treated like an administrative offense and punished with a fine.
