Stelzer appeals to vaccination skeptics: “Trust the experts”

“Trust the science and the experts,” was his appeal. Also, “now all those who have not yet had themselves vaccinated should make a contribution by reducing their social contacts and complying with the exit restrictions”.

“Since the outbreak of the Corona virus there has been a lot of talk about fundamental rights and freedom. That is good and right. But we also have to talk more about the responsibility of each individual for our fellow human beings and for the state as a whole,” said Stelzer. Citizenship does not end with paying taxes, one also has to think of others, “of children, the sick, of those in the health service who fight against Corona to the point of exhaustion”.
