Privileges for the vaccinated and convalescent – Only a minority is against it
Hamburg has been a pioneer since the end of August: The Hanseatic city was the first federal state to introduce a 2G option. Now other federal states are following suit. More and more often at events, leisure activities or in the restaurant: only vaccinated and convalescent people. Most Germans are fully vaccinated and have no problem with it. But a minority of 20 percent doesn’t think that’s good, according to a survey.

According to a new survey, 20 percent of Germans are against privileges for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered from Corona. They don’t think it’s good when immunized people are freed from contact and exit restrictions and are given back their old freedoms in restaurants and hotels, sports and cultural facilities. This was the result of a representative survey by the Hamburg Opaschowski Institute for Future Research (OIZ).
Rejection comes from singles and teenagers
Accordingly, young people and singles in particular are against a better position for those who have been vaccinated and recovered. In the 14- to 24-year-old age group, the rejection was 25 percent, in the singles aged 25 to 49 years even 28 percent. Among families with young people and residents of rural areas, however, the rejection is significantly lower at 15 and 14 percent, respectively.

“Many opponents of vaccination will defend themselves against restrictions”
According to the futurologist Horst Opaschowski (80), it can be assumed that many unvaccinated people and those who oppose the vaccination will continue to defend themselves against their restrictions on freedom. “Perhaps the stable 20 percent rejection rate conceals many politically dissatisfied people who feel that they have lost the crisis and give rise to social conflicts and tensions in society,” Opaschowski suspects. “Many feel that being excluded from participating in sports, cultural and other events is like being under house arrest.” (Dpa / lm).
