The introduction of a mandatory vaccination depends “on what Karl Lauterbach can tell us with a high level of commitment about the availability of vaccines,” said Heiner Garg, Deputy Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein and Minister of Health of the most northern federal state stern in an interview that appears on Thursday.

“We cannot make a general vaccination requirement, but then stand in front of the people and say: ‘We’re sorry, we have too little vaccine.’ to be able to “. When asked whether the FDP, which criticized the harsh Corona measures during the election campaign, had betrayed its voters, Garg said: “That is not a contradiction. The central basic value of the Free Democrats is freedom. But with freedom there is always responsibility connected.”

It is “also legitimate to articulate doubts about the measures”. On the other hand, it is unforgivable and undemocratic when “my colleagues are threatened, like the Minister of Health of Saxony, Petra Köpping, who marched in front of her house with corona deniers with torches.” As a further example he cited the “massive threats against Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach or against Jens Spahn” when he was still in office. “It has nothing to do with democracy and freedom of expression. I condemn that in the strongest possible terms.”
