    The film and theater actress Eva Herzig, who is well-known for the ARD crime series Steirerkrimi, does not want to be vaccinated – and now she has lost her job because she refused. ARD is the abbreviation for the working group of public broadcasters of the Federal Republic of Germany, a joint organisation of Germany’s regional public-service broadcasters.

    Herzig, who has also played in the very popular crime series SOKO Leipzig, SOKO Kitzbühel and SOKO Cologne, wrote in a Facebook post: “The time has come, the VOLUNTARY VACCINATION has reached me too. If I don’t get vaccinated, I won’t be able to shoot another Styrian thriller. In the fall, a new series will start without me. I expected it, but the news hit me anyway.”

    The vaccination is experimental, according to her. She has also “read too many reports about vaccination damage” and the “long-term consequences of a vaccination are not yet clear”. Herzig told Bild am Sonntag that the decision she had made not to be vaccinated was nevertheless not an easy one. Mainly because she would no longer be part of the next series of the popular thrillers. “This means that I give up an income that I have firmly planned for,” she told the newspaper.

    “I am a single mother of two children, who of course I have to look after. But I cannot and will not give in. Therefore I will not get vaccinated, no matter what I am threatened with.”

    The responsible production company Allegro Film justified the step by citing a “duty of care” towards the employees. They told the Bild am Sonntag: “In a production like the ‘Steirerkrimis’ there are around 50 people on the set, for whom we as the production company are responsible. This includes urgently and without a doubt that everything that could endanger the health of employees is to be avoided.”

    The professional association of the German cinema and television landscape Bundesverband Schauspiel apparently sees no need for action. The deputy chairman Hans-Werner Meyer is quoted in the paper as follows: “We trust the recommendations of the Standing Vaccination Commission. And they say: Get vaccinated.”

And how safe are the jabs?
