No mandatory imprint through the back door
According to media reports, the SPD parliamentary group is examining a legal ban on privileging those vaccinated against corona. The legal policy spokesman for the CDU / CSU parliamentary group, Dr. Jan-Marco Luczak:
“For us as a Union faction it is and remains clear that there will be no compulsory vaccination. Also no vaccination through the back door. Everyone can and must be free to decide whether to be vaccinated or not. We do not want society to be divided into vaccinated and non-vaccinated people.
The discussion started by the SPD about a ban on privileging those vaccinated against corona is a phantom debate. At the moment we don’t have enough capacity to vaccinate everyone who wants to. As long as this is the case, the question of privilege does not arise, it is purely hypothetical and only unsettles people. Because it doesn’t do a club operator anything if he allowed access to eighty-year-olds who will be vaccinated in the next few weeks and months, but not to twenty-year-olds who are willing to celebrate and who have not yet had the opportunity to be vaccinated. The same applies to restaurants or supermarkets, which are unlikely to lock out the majority of their as yet unvaccinated customers.
Instead of unsettling people with premature and hypothetical discussions about constitutionally dubious bans, we should concentrate all our efforts on being able to make the vaccine available to many people as quickly as possible. “
