The German Health Minister, Jens Spahn , announced this Friday that he will force all travelers over 12 years of age not vaccinated or without the full schedule to submit a negative test before entering the country by any means of access.
“All unvaccinated people entering Germany will have to deliver a test, regardless of whether they arrive by air, road or rail. Thus, we will reduce the risk of entry of additional infections, ” said the minister.
The measure, which will take effect on Sunday, will affect older children, many of whom do not have the complete guideline, since it stipulates the minimum age of 12 years to deliver the test, among other options to verify that they only have a minimum probability of being vectors of contagion .
Any child within this spectrum must present either the full vaccination schedule, a negative test, or show that they have already recovered from the disease.
These rules expand those already in force for passengers in air transport, while the minister has insisted that people get vaccinated as soon as possible.
“The offer of ‘vaccine for all’ continues this summer. We have a dose to spare, ” he asserted.
