The Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Hendrik Wüst, has reiterated the call for vaccinations to be compulsory from the age of 18.

Düsseldorf – A few hours before the federal and state consultations on the further course of corona policy, the CDU politician said on Monday in Düsseldorf that the vaccination rate for older people in North Rhine-Westphalia, for example, was already very high. That’s why it’s important to “start where we’re not so heavily vaccinated. For me, vaccination would be compulsory from the age of 18. »

With a view to the upcoming consultations, Wüst also advocated preparing a way back to normality “already today”. A clear exit strategy must be prepared for the time when it is certain that the healthcare system will not be overloaded by Omikron and the critical infrastructure will remain stable. “People deserve it,” he said.

In the ZDF “Morgenmagazin” Wüst defended the decision that boosted people do not have to show a current test despite possible vaccination breakthroughs when applying the 2G-plus rule. Those affected are usually very little infectious and pose no danger to others. The step is also “an incentive for boosters”. Because vaccination is the way out of the crisis, back to normality. “We can only get out of the constant repetition of lockdown and relaxation when more people are vaccinated.” (dpa)
