Swine flu: willingness to vaccinate the German population was very low
Almost half of the 9.5 million vaccine doses against swine flu ordered in November 2009 were not used and now another 34 million doses for almost 300 million euros will be delivered by March.
This means that only about 5 percent of the German population have been vaccinated against swine flu or new flu. With an estimated 82 million people in Germany, this is approximately 4 million vaccinations. According to a press release by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Social Affairs, Women, Family and Health, the federal states now only have to take 34 million of the 50 million cans that have been ordered, which the manufacturers will deliver by March this year. The press release also states that this reduced costs by 133.3 million. Anyone who can count will find that a vaccine dose costs around 8.3 euros and the remaining 34 million vaccines thus around 283 million (according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) on January 12, 2010, even around 303 million ) will cost.
As can be read on Internet portals about swine flu, many Germans are still very skeptical about the vaccination. In online surveys it can be read in some cases that almost 70 percent do not want to be vaccinated in the future either, and about 70 percent also consider the side effects of the new flu to be "very strong".
The fact is that it is difficult to get information about the side effects and complications of vaccination against the A / H1N1 virus. The database of the Paul Ehrlich Institute is currently so complex, complex and confusing that it is difficult to get an overview of the current situation of vaccination complications and possible deaths in Germany.
The critical online magazine LifeGen claims that it has even filed a criminal complaint against the Standing Vaccination Commission (STIKO). They state that “an approved drug was purchased with practically no prior long-term clinical trial” and was recommended. In Germany, according to the daily report of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control from January 15. In 2010 there were just over 215,000 swine flu infected people. Of these, 178 people have died so far, but the majority of them, according to other media reports, should have had previous illnesses. (Thorsten Fischer, naturopath osteopathy, January 17, 2010)
