COVID-19 pandemic: Should vaccination be compulsory? | To the point

1 min read

To call it a matter of life and death is not hyperbole. With a fourth wave of COVID-19 rolling across Europe, physicians here in Germany are warning of disastrous trade-offs as intensive care units reach capacity and patients are transferred abroad for treatment.

Hospitals are seeing younger and sicker patients than in prior waves, especially amongst the unvaccinated. In Germany some 15 million people still lack immunity because they haven’t had the jab. Calls for mandatory vaccination are growing louder – neighboring countries like Austria are leading the way. Other countries are reimposing lockdowns. Not without resistance, as evidenced by recent protests. Today we’re asking: COVID-19 pandemic: Should vaccination be compulsory?

Our guests: Alexander Kekulé (virologist), Susanne Schreiber (German Ethics Council), Kai Kupferschmidt (molecular biologist and science journalist)
