BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – In the struggle for a general corona vaccination, Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called for a careful discussion. “Such an extraordinary measure also puts our state in an extraordinary duty before its citizens. In short: compulsory vaccination means compulsory debate,” said the head of state on Wednesday in Berlin. There is still a dispute about the schedule and the procedure for the deliberations in the Bundestag. Additional vaccination doses are available for vaccinations until the beginning of February. The number of new infections skyrocketed.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz is hoping for a quick consultation in the Bundestag about compulsory vaccinations. “In any case, I consider it necessary and will actively work for it,” said the SPD politician on Wednesday in his first government survey. Not to be vaccinated is not a personal decision, but has consequences for the whole country. Most recently, clinics had to cancel operations to make room for corona patients. “There is no decision that you make for yourself, and that is why compulsory vaccination is also important.”

The coalition of the SPD, FDP and the Greens is planning a free vote without parliamentary group specifications on mandatory vaccination. Greens parliamentary group leader Britta Haßelmann said on ZDF on Wednesday: “We are in talks with other members of other parliamentary groups in order to determine the key points.” After an “orientation debate” in the Bundestag in the week from January 24th, she reckons that Parliament will “be confronted with several group motions very quickly”.

The cabinet launched the legal framework for the planned new corona quarantine rules on Wednesday. This should apply in the future: “Anyone who is boosted no longer has to be in quarantine as a contact person in the event of an infection,” said Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD). This also applies to the Omikron variant. Booster vaccinations make double sense: “It makes everyday life easier. And it protects against infection or serious illness.”

The federal and state governments had basically agreed the new regulations last week. A corresponding ordinance, which the cabinet has now decided, is intended to determine which general exceptions there can be from quarantine as a contact person for infected people and from isolation as self-infected people if you have been vaccinated or have recovered. The ordinance is to come to the Bundestag this Thursday, and the Bundesrat will deal with it on Friday. It is expected to come into force on Saturday. Ultimately, the rules are then implemented by the federal states. / Sam / sk / sku / mfi / höz / DP / eas
