Bonn/Berlin, January 15, 2022. According to its co-chairman Saskia Esken, the SPD is aiming for a decision on a possible compulsory vaccination against Corona in the German Bundestag at the beginning of March. “In any case, we want to come to a decision in the first quarter, ideally at the beginning of March,” said Esken in the phoenix interview. Until then, there is still enough time to debate the issue in Parliament. “We are now in mid-January, we would then have half of January and the whole of February for the debate, which also takes place when we don’t have session weeks. We have all the time to debate the topic in depth,” explains the SPD -Politician.

Previous efforts to achieve a sufficiently high vaccination rate on a voluntary basis have failed. “We have found that we cannot achieve the vaccination rate we need through pure persuasion and that we obviously need vaccination.” Furthermore, Esken specifies that “a compulsory vaccination from the age of 18 would be correct”. In the ranks of the party, the SPD co-chair sees a high level of acceptance for the introduction of compulsory vaccination. “I assume that the SPD will agree in large numbers.”
