Two people are Dead and well over a hundred Sick since the beginning of the year: The recent measles outbreak in Switzerland startled the policy. Center representative, Ruth Humbel (CVP) or Lorenz Hess (BDP) is now calling for a national, mandatory vaccination, to prevent future spread of the disease. If the target was not achieved due to vaccination coverage of 95 percent in the near future, should consider the Federal government a compulsory vaccination to a fine system, says Humbel in the “view”.
Therefore, to take advantage of the health-politician, non-vaccinated persons, also financially, in the duty, by this would need to be involved in the disease case, more to the healing costs. According to the Federal office for health (BAG) are vaccinated, 87 percent of two-year-old children and 92 percent of the 16-year-old young people with the necessary two doses.
Also, Hess says, there is a need for perhaps a compulsory vaccination, with the possibility of Sanctions. Because of the current measles outbreak, the national Council will now submit a proposal, in which he by the Federal Council wants to know how the 95 percent vaccination Coverage levels can be achieved.

"This is a Impfdiktatur!"
not at all agree Yvette is an ester of a man: "This is a nonsensical Impfdiktatur!", the SVP national councillor says. The measles vaccine is for healthy children "unnecessary". The Lucerne wants to leave it to the parents, whether they vaccinate their children after consultation with the pediatrician or not. "Who's afraid of children's diseases, not to vaccinate his children, others."
Needless ester's party colleagues did not find an immunization, but do not hold a mandatory vaccination, or a share of the costs. "A compulsion, there should be only if an epidemic threatens. Otherwise, the thing the parents have to stay," says the national Council of Basel Sebastian Frehner. His Basel colleague from the Council, Thomas de Courten, however, contradicts this point: "The personal integrity, also in times of measles epidemics untouchable. Where does the because - we would have to introduce also for tick bites, rabies or Aids a compulsory vaccination?", he asks.
SVP national councillor Verena Herzog insists on individual responsibility, but requires that impfunwillige parents would have to let the pediatrician or parents for advice on possible consequential damages. As the complications of the disease, for example, lung or brain can occur inflammation. "However, you choose nevertheless, you have to be prepared to follow-up costs to take on," says Duke.
you are in Favour of mandatory vaccination of measles?Yes
skeptics also on left side
Yvette Estermann alone is not: In the Parliament there is also on the left side Impfskeptiker. Such as SP-national councillor Edith Graf doubted-Litscher, the effectiveness of vaccinations, because this "would never be a hundred percent protection against diseases," she says in the "view".
So far, many of their party colleagues not to go. But compulsory vaccination, buses and cost sharing have also left in a difficult position. "That would be a taboo, because it would give the patient the blame for their disease. Would then have to pay soon, smokers or the Obese for their own treatment?", about Bea home asks. The SP-national councillor locates to the authorities is a serious omission: "you have to be informed for a long time a little, but the field is simply the Impfgegnern leave, the social media very actively." The BAG must inform on all channels, factual, and comprehensive. Useful the solo thurnerin would also vaccination campaigns in the schools, because that would be the social pressure and thus the vaccination rates increase.
patient organisations, are alarmed as to whether this political discussion: A compulsory vaccination contrary to the Constitution, according to which every person has the right to physical integrity, says Erika Ziltener, President of the Federation authorities of the Swiss Patients. They criticised the fact that single vaccines are hardly available, which could lead to an Inoculation. In addition, lack of long-term studies. "Instead, it is worked in the acrimonious debate with threats and pressure. It should be much wider its security," says Ziltener. In the eye, she has dedicated Impfbefürworter such as the immuno-Beda Stadler lied. This referred to Edith Graf-Litschers impfskeptische attitude as "perverse". "Stadler is fuelling resistance and contributes little to that parents have their children vaccinated."
Concrete plans for a mandatory vaccination of the authorities, despite the recent measles outbreak. The President of the Federal vaccination Commission, which advises the FOPH in these questions, not considered a forced sense: "The vaccination rate is increasing - we are on the right path," says the pediatrician Christoph Berger. In order to achieve the target of 95 per cent, should be the gaps among adults between 25 and 50 years, was closed. "We can do this with an active communication and regular Vaccination card controls in schools and nurseries", Berger is convinced. With a forced, however, to not get just those dedicated opponents who consciously decide against having the measles vaccination. "It is only a few percent of the population." (Editorial Tamedia)
