Ominous demand from Saxony

The premier of Saxony also demands from the federal government that the “vaccinated” status expires after six months at the latest, if no booster shot (third vaccination) has taken place. The “recover” status should also expire after six months.

▶ This is a sign of things to come in Germany. It looks like in the future a vaccinated person will be anyone who has had booster immunization shot.
