The current Corona arrangement ends on Holy Saturday. Will there be a rule change that will make the Green Passport valid for longer?
The current corona wave now seems to be decreasing considerably. “I now expect a halving every one or two weeks,” says complexity researcher Peter Klimek. The situation in the hospitals should also calm down after grueling months. Bright spots for the experts: Many have already lived through the infection, the coming warmer weather will help and there is no new variant in the offing.
New rules are needed for the time from Holy Saturday
Actually favorable signs under which the National Vaccination Commission met yesterday. New recommendations for the time after Holy Saturday are expected by Monday, when the current arrangement will expire. Then comes the political decision.
Action needs to be taken, especially regarding a possible fourth vaccination, as tens of thousands of green passports would expire in the coming months under current regulations.
So another mandatory stitch? “In healthy boys, there is no evidence of a reduction in protection against severe courses,” said Maria Paulke-Korinek, head of the immunization department at the Ministry of Health. For high-risk patients over the age of 65, another vaccination may be offered “at the earliest six months after the third.” According to reports, there is talk of extending the validity of the third vaccination to one year. The rules for those who have recovered may also change.
