Seven MPs from the coalition factions of the SPD, FDP and Greens have announced a first draft law for the introduction of general corona vaccination.
Berlin – The group is in favor of an obligation from the age of 18 and wants to work on a draft after the orientation debate planned for next Wednesday in Parliament, as stated in a letter published on Friday. It is available from the German Press Agency.
“On this important issue, we are expressly open and cross-party, because we want to bring about a democratic consensus for the best possible solution,” it said. The aim is a “sustainable, proportionate and at the same time targeted” solution. “Our motivation is primarily to be prepared in the long term for the coming autumn and winter season and to prevent the healthcare system from being overloaded in future waves of infection.”
The letter is signed by the SPD MPs Dirk Wiese, Heike Baehrens and Dagmar Schmidt, the Green MPs Janosch Dahmen and Till Steffen and the FDP MPs Kathrin Helling-Plahr and Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann. So far, a first draft of a group around FDP Vice Wolfgang Kubicki is known, which speaks out against compulsory vaccination. (dpa)
