Majority of Swiss for compulsory vaccination

A clear majority is in favor of compulsory vaccination in Switzerland.

While Austria is introducing compulsory vaccination next February and such a step is being hotly debated in Germany, Switzerland is holding back. However, a survey by the Swiss media newspapers shows that a majority is in favor of compulsory vaccination.

A total of 57 percent of those questioned were in favor of the introduction of compulsory vaccinations, as the CH Media newspapers write in their Wednesday edition and on their news portal on the Internet. Such a step is rejected by 36 percent. Seven percent are still undecided. The survey is consistent with current surveys in Germany. According to “Spiegel” in Switzerland’s neighboring country, 70 percent say yes to compulsory vaccination.

Such a radical measure is currently not an issue for political decision-makers. More than 1,700 readers took part in the survey via the Internet by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the CH Media report.
