The German government is apparently considering the same policy that Greece is planning: forcing “unvaccinated” people to lock down, while allowing those who have had the jab at least some measure of freedom.

Chancellor’s Office Minister Braun: Lockdown only for the unvaccinated
When determining measures in the fight against the Corona pandemic, the German government will not rely solely on the so-called incidences in the future, according to the head of the Chancellor’s Office, Helge Braun (CDU). To be sure, these will continue to play an important role, Braun told MDR on Friday. “But if we are now in the situation that a high number of citizens are vaccinated, we must of course include other factors.”
More focus should be placed on hospital admissions related to coronavirus, according to Braun. “The question is, what proportion of incidence actually leads to more severe courses?”
He also said the goal is to observe how well the vaccinations worked against different Corona variants. “If even vaccinated people increasingly come to the hospital, that would be a signal that we are either dealing with a variant or that the vaccination success is already waning again, and so you have to revaccinate,” said the head of the Chancellor’s Office.
The CDU politician does not expect another lockdown in the fall. “As long as the vaccinations work well, a lockdown at the expense of those who are fully vaccinated is out of the question,” he stressed. Many areas that had been completely closed in the past would have to “remain open for this large part of the population.”
