Since the vaccination protection of a double vaccination is decreasing, politicians are thinking about shortening the validity of vaccination certificates. Is the booster obligation coming?
Hamburg – Vaccination protection, including a double vaccination, tends to protect against severe courses of infection with the corona virus, but it must still be up-to-date. Until when this is the case and when a so-called booster vaccination is necessary in order to be considered vaccinated, experts disagree.
One thing is only certain: the state relies on the booster vaccination to fight pandemics and wants as many people as possible to be vaccinated a third time so that they are protected against the virus for as long as possible.
24hamburg.de * reveals here whether this means that people without a booster vaccination will soon be considered unvaccinated.
The Standing Vaccination Commission of the Länder (Stiko) has now expanded its recommendation for booster vaccinations to all citizens aged 18 and over. Health Minister Jens Spahn would also like to be able to offer a booster vaccination to as many citizens from the age of 18 as possible. * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
