Janosch Dahmen (Greens): Need a vaccination rate of 90 percent – that’s the way out of the pandemic
The health expert of the Greens, Janosch Dahmen, calls for a “bar of effort” to increase the vaccination rate quickly and noticeably. “With the new Delta or Omikron mutation variants, it is clear that we need a vaccination rate of over 90 percent,” said Dahmen at phoenix. The necessary steps to get there also include compulsory vaccination. After a first step of a “facility-related vaccination obligation”, it is crucial in the next step, “with the general vaccination obligation, but also with educational work and with the expansion of vaccination offers to ensure that we convince as many people as possible and induce them to vaccinate” the doctor and health politician. This is the “way out of the pandemic”, this is the only way to get out of the “constantly new waves”.
It must now be clarified quickly how one wants to get the vaccination off the ground. “I am expressly in favor of doing it with a parliamentary resolution,” said Dahmen. It is important to make a quick decision, even if the date of application is not until next year. “So that people have clarity and that we can quickly increase the vaccination rate during implementation,” said Dahmen. He expressly welcomes the fact that this is now being coordinated by a crisis team. “Even now we would have needed a lot more vaccine and all of that needs to be looked at. We currently need at least one and a half million vaccine doses per day to bring the infection dynamics under control and get out of this fourth wave. That will only work if we Take a look at every single step from production to the spades. It’s good that this is now being done as a real crisis management team in an operational crisis team, “he explained.
