The vaccination campaign in Germany is progressing too sluggishly, as a result of which the country is moving towards the next, third radical lockdown. SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach calls for a change in the coronavirus vaccination strategy. According to the expert, it is necessary to increase the number of the first doses of the vaccine as soon as possible.
If at the same time, due to lack of vaccine, the interval between the second vaccinations is increased from six to 12 weeks, by July more than 60 million people in Germany will be able to receive the first dose. In this way, a substantial percentage of the population can be protected against serious diseases, Lauterbach said in an interview with Augsburger Allgemeine. At the same time, the expert spoke about vaccination with drugs from Biontech and Moderna.
“If we change the vaccination strategy in the near future and focus on making as many first vaccinations as possible, the need for a fourth quarantine will disappear,” the expert emphasized. Otherwise, the fourth wave will sweep over the country in the summer.
Lauterbach refers to the experience of Great Britain, as well as to his calculations. By changing the vaccination strategy, “more than 10,000” deaths can be prevented.
“The results of a study in Australia show that the protection of injected vaccines between the sixth and twelfth weeks after vaccination is so strong that the risk of becoming ill with a hospital stay, or worse, the risk of death, is extremely low,” concluded Lauterbach …
