STUTTGART (dpa-AFX) – Baden-Württemberg’s data protection officer Stefan Brink considers a national vaccination register to be legally conceivable, but advises against its introduction. Even now, many people took to the streets and had the feeling that the state would control them, he said, according to a report published online on Thursday by “Spiegel”.
“If you take hasty steps, trust in our state could fall further,” the news magazine Brink quotes. “Centrally recording the vaccination status without the consent of those affected and possibly wanting to impose fines on this basis is an enforcement fantasy that can have a negative effect on the vaccination campaign.”
The vaccination status of all people in Germany could be recorded in a vaccination register in order to have a better overview. The German Association of Towns and Municipalities had suggested such a register in the corona pandemic. Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) and Federal Justice Minister Marco Buschmann (FDP) have shown themselves to be skeptical. Such a register already exists in Austria./kre/DP/mis
