General practitioners do not want to issue electronic vaccination records

General practitioner boss Ulrich Weigeldt has criticized the plans to involve general practitioners in the process of granting vaccinated and convalescent exemptions from the corona rules.

"Doctors in private practice cannot be held responsible for issuing a digital vaccination certificate retrospectively, that is completely unworldly," he told the Handelsblatt (Wednesday edition). "We are not the passport office."

On the one hand, the practices with vaccinations and corona patients are busy, said Weigeldt. On the other hand, the technical basis for doctors to issue an electronic vaccination certificate has so far been missing. "And I can't see that that's going to change in the coming months."
