The district of Bautzen in Saxony does not want to enforce the compulsory vaccination against the corona virus for staff in clinics and care facilities, which is planned from mid-March.

From March 16, the district health department will “not ban employees in nursing and in the medical field, no ban on entry,” said Deputy District Administrator Udo Witschas (CDU) on Monday evening to the applause of hundreds of demonstrators who protested against the corona measures in Bautzen .

There is a simple answer to the question of why there will be no entry ban for nursing staff in the district.

"Who should or will take care of these people in need of care in our clinics and care facilities when they are no longer there?" said Witschas, who is responsible for the health department.

The Bautzen district administrator Michael Harig had previously requested in a letter to the Saxon Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (both CDU) that the facility-related compulsory vaccination should be postponed or completely abolished.

»Legal regulations should only be made if their implementation is feasible and the associated goals are achievable.

Both are not given,” Harig wrote in the letter published on Monday.

At the same time, Harig emphasized that the effectiveness of vaccination as an instrument for combating the pandemic should by no means be called into question.

However, the health authorities would have to take into account the security of care for the people to be cared for and cared for when implementing the vaccination requirement.

In view of the already tense personnel situation in nursing, even a loss of around ten percent cannot be compensated for by compulsory vaccination.

In Bautzen, like in many other places in Saxony and other federal states, critics of the corona vaccination and the corona restrictions have been taking to the streets for weeks.

There have also been attacks on police officers.
