Germany Drafting Legislation To Make COVID Vaccines Mandatory
Germany will most likely be joining Austria in implementing a mandatory vaccination requirement for their citizens. Earlier this month, Chancellor Angela Merkel and her successor Olaf Scholz barred the unvaccinated from access to all but essential businesses like grocery stores, pharmacies and banks. At that time, they also requested an ethics committee to draft legislation to make vaccination mandatory. The measure will be debated and voted on in February at the latest.
Starting in February citizens in Austria could face a fine of 3600 Euros every three months and possible jail time if they don't comply. This however will be hard to enforce given the fact that there are approximately two million people who are not "fully vaccinated."
Greece has also implemented mandatory vaccination requirements for people over the age of 60. Citizens who don't comply will be required to pay a monthly fine.
Robb Butler, executive director for World Health Organization (WHO) Europe, has expressed his opinion that countries need to have a healthy debate around mandating vaccines for all. This is exactly what's happening now.
In Indonesia, all adults will face fines or refusal of social assistance or government services for not being vaccinated. Micronesia, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan have also implemented mandatory vaccination requirements for the citizenry.
Throughout this pandemic, health authorities have claimed that vaccines will never be forced upon the the citizenry, yet it's happened in indirect coercive ways. Telling someone they cannot work and put food on the table or travel unless they get vaccinated is not much of a choice, and forcing citizens to pay fines and/or face jail time doesn't leave much of a choice either.
It is to be noted that COVID vaccination efforts do not stop the spread of COVID nor protect people from being infected. They have been shown, in some cases, to reduce the severity of symptoms for a period of time. Essentially, one is protecting themselves, if that, for a short period of time from severe COVID and possible death but not really doing much to "benefit the whole." The Pfizer 6 month data actually shows that Pfizer's COVID-19 inoculations cause more illness than they prevent.
There is also the issue of severe adverse reactions to COVID shots that doesn't seem to be getting much attention within the mainstream. Furthermore, the FDA is asking a federal judge to hold on to vaccine data that was used to approve the Pfizer shot until 2096. A Freedom of Information Act Request uncovered a portion of the documents so far, and it shows that Pfizer was aware of more than 50,000 serious adverse reactions that may have been a result of the vaccine.
There have been exponential outbreaks in highly vaccinated regions and countries throughout this pandemic. Of the top five counties that have the highest percentage of fully vaccinated people (99.9–84.3%), the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies four of them as "high” transmission counties.
This has many people asking, with COVID having such a high survival rate, what is the point in having vaccine mandates over education, encouragement, and a more focused protection plan that The Great Barrington Declaration has advocated for throughout this pandemic? What is going on here?
Hospital admissions have not been put in proper context, as explained by Carl Heneghan, Professor of Evidence Based Medicine at Oxford. Hospitals have been well over capacity and overwhelmed prior to COVID, and ICU resources have always been extremely limited. Is COVID the issue, or is an inadequate healthcare system the issue?
Why has the science behind natural immunity been ignored?
For these reasons and many more, mandatory vaccination measures are being strongly opposed by a significant amount of people.
Governments have a responsibility to represent the will of the people. Should we really give governments power to rollout "emergency" measures that have done more harm than COVID itself? Lockdowns, for example, have been one of the worst public health catastrophes in human history.
If all of this was put to a global vote, what would the people decide? Why are politicians and corporations in this case allowed to dictate government policy? Why have some of the biggest protests in human history been ignored by mainstream media throughout this pandemic?
Citizens in Germany are already protesting lockdown measures that have been imposed on the unvaccinated.
I'd like to leave you with a quote that I've used many times before, but it's still quite relevant. It comes from National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden. In 2013, Snowden leaked documents revealing the existence of an NSA mass surveillance program that was and is being used to spy and accumulate data on all citizens not only in the United States, but around the world.
As authoritarianism spreads, as emergency laws proliferate, as we sacrifice our rights, we also sacrifice our capability to arrest the slide into a less liberal and less free world. Do you truly believe that when the first wave, this second wave, the 16th wave of the coronavirus is a long forgotten memory, that these capabilities will not be kept?

What is encouraging to see, however, are the tens and millions of people around the globe, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, standing together in support of freedom of choice. This pandemic has been yet another catalyst out of many that is sparking a shift in consciousness. People are starting to see aspects of our world that they were not aware of before, aspects that simply do not resonate with the type of world we want to live in. This in itself is very exciting and encouraging.
