Vaccination against the corona virus will be mandatory in certain facilities from March. What does that mean for the job market? Halle/Erfurt (dpa/th) – In Thuringia, many positions in nursing are still vacant. Nationwide, in December 2021, 619 vacancies were reported at the employment offices in geriatric care. There were 398 vacancies in health and nursing, as a spokesman for the Saxony-Anhalt-Thuringia regional directorate told the Federal Employment Agency in Halle. However, the period in which positions could be filled has become somewhat shorter. In Thuringia, for example, in 2021 jobs reported in geriatric care were vacant for an average of 236 days. That is a minus of 22 days compared to 2020. In healthcare and nursing, the vacancy period was 151 days in 2021, 15 days fewer than in the previous year. The schedule for the possible introduction of a general obligation to vaccinate in Germany is still open. A first limited corona vaccination obligation was decided in mid-December 2021: Employees in facilities with vulnerable people such as clinics and nursing homes must prove by March 15, 2022 that they have been vaccinated against the corona virus or have recovered. According to labor market experts, it is unclear whether this is why people have registered as jobseekers. The statistics do not provide any information as to why someone is looking for a job, the spokesman said. It is therefore unclear whether more people may have registered as jobseekers because they do not want to be vaccinated, whether their employment contracts are expiring or they want to reorient themselves professionally for various reasons. © dpa-infocom, dpa:220115-99-717631/2 Labor market report by the Federal Employment Agency The labor market in Thuringia in December 2021
