German foster care workers refused to be vaccinated and were fired

Seven care workers in Germany refused to be vaccinated against the coronavirus and were fired.

The incident occurred in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. According to the newspaper, the head of the care service Rene Willmer discussed vaccination with the employees and gave them two days to make a decision. In the end, they refused to vaccinate, and as a result, they decided to fire them.

The head of the service explained such actions by the fact that he intends to do everything to protect patients, as he considers it his moral obligation. It is noted that this is the first such case of dismissal for refusal of vaccination in Germany.

“I’m not anti-vaccination. I just wanted to think a few more days. Putting a deadline when it comes to such personal matters is impertinent,” said one of the employees who was fired. The workers intend to appeal to a labor court.

Earlier, airline passengers in Germany were forbidden to board the plane without special masks with an increased degree of protection.
