01:01 am: New Union Law Minister Marco Bushman Wants potential general violations Corona– Punish compulsory vaccination with a fine. “No one should be vaccinated against their will through physical coercion,” FDP politician Funke told reporters from the media group. “Instead, it is conceivable that it would be an administrative offense to violate the vaccine certification requirement. Permission would be a penalty.
Bushman opened it Bundestock To a general Mandatory vaccination True or not. He will make a decision only if all applications are submitted. “There is a movement to deny compulsory vaccination, there will definitely be a movement going in the direction of compulsory vaccination,” he said. “There may be a third use that works with the mandatory vaccine based on age.”

Ramalo calls those who have not been vaccinated with the Novavox
12:21 am: Prime Minister of Thuringia Poto Ramalo (Left) Those who are not vaccinated against MRNA vaccines are urged to use the newly approved Dead Vaccine from the US manufacturer Nova Vox. “The first deadly vaccine is now approved by the European Medicines Agency; the second will soon be followed,” said the head of government of Germany’s editorial network. “As Prime Minister of East Germany, I’m very pleased with it and I say to those who are against mRNA vaccines and those who are currently protesting: if they take themselves seriously, they should definitely be vaccinated.”
Now it’s about producing and providing adequate vaccination, Ramallo said. Then nothing will stand in the way of effective alternative vaccines.
Millions of people in Germany have not yet been vaccinated. This is due to distrust or uncertainty over previously approved drugs. The Novavox product is not an MRNA vaccine like the products of Biontech and Moderna, nor is it a vector vaccine like AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson. Deadly vaccines such as novovax have long been used, for example against hepatitis A and B or the flu. Therefore, it is hoped that the classic vaccine technology will inspire more people to be vaccinated.
