After punishments for truant vaccinations were brought up, the head of the health insurance company took a different approach: He called for an end to the measure for vaccinated people.
Berlin – The nationwide vaccination campaign is in full swing, after all, the goal of herd immunity of at least 80 percent will soon be achieved. But it seems that vaccination is slowly coming to a standstill in the vaccination centers and general practitioners' practices. Thousands upon thousands of people cancel their appointment, especially the one for the second vaccination, or simply skip it.
Some experts and politicians are now calling for drastic consequences to take action against truants. They should be punished with a fine of 25 to 30 euros. The chairman of the board of the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, Andreas Gassen, wants to advertise "the advantages of a vaccination against the coronavirus" and therefore calls for an end to the corona measures for completely vaccinated people – in particular, the mask requirement should be dropped. * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
