BERLIN (AP) – German lawmakers have overwhelmingly backed a bill that would require staff at hospitals and nursing homes to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Of the 689 votes in the lower house on the bill, 571 voted in favor and 80 against. 38 lawmakers recorded abstentions. The bill, which is being fast-tracked, still needs to be passed by the upper house, which is likely to be done by the end of Friday. A second, more controversial bill that would mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for all is being prepared and could be debated by parliament next month. According to official figures about 69.4% of Germany’s population of 83 million are fully immunized.
