Deutsche Welle reported that Germany’s Health Minister Jens Spahn is ending support for unvaccinated workers. the Health Minister announced on Wednesday that the country would no longer compensate unvaccinated workers who are forced to quarantine after COVID-19 exposure.
Why should others pay for the fact that someone has decided not to be vaccinated?” Health Minister Spahn said.
“It is not about pressure, it is about fairness,” he added.
According to Deutsche Welle, Bavarian Health Minister Klaus Holetschek said exceptions would be made for those who cannot be vaccinated.
“Anyone who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons is allowed a medical certificate to prove this,” said Holetschek. “In addition, compensation will be available for citizens for whom no public vaccination recommendation has yet been given.”
