COVID-19: German health minister in favour of mandatory vaccinations for adults as protests continue

by News Update

German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said Friday that he is in favour of implementing compulsory COVID-19 vaccinations for those aged 18 and older to tackle the rising cases of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.

Meanwhile, hundreds of those opposing the government’s COVID-19 restrictions took to the streets of Dresden on Thursday night, most without face masks, in so called “walks” strewn across the city. Officers were seen taking down the personal details of several protesters before they were photographed by police in the street.

Senior German virologist Christian Drosten said that he expects Germany to have reached the endemic state by the end of the year. He also said that this means an additional booster again in the fall for the elderly and vulnerable, “like in any influenza season.”

In America our Supreme Court ruled government mandates on private companies unconstituonal, which we already knew. We'll bankrupt all businesses that participate in any mandates.

They should take the protests to the minister's house.
