Unvaccinated Shut Out In Germany

Angela Merkel

According to AP news, Germans who aren’t vaccinated are to be excluded from nonessential stores, cultural and recreational venues.

Also, Germany’s parliament is to consider a general vaccine mandate.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday the measures were necessary in light of concerns that hospitals in Germany could become overloaded with COVID-19 patients. Infections are more likely to be serious in those who haven’t been vaccinated.

Merkel said, “The situation in our country is serious.”

Infections have again topped 70,000 in a 24-hour period.

Officials have also agreed to require masks in German schools, impose new limits on private meetings and aim for 30 million vaccinations by the end of the year.

German lawmakers will debate the possibility of a vaccine mandate. If approved, it could take effect as early as February.
