Four reasons why Germans are refusing the jab

The vaccination campaign in Germany is unravelling, with some vaccination doses already expiring, because the number of those who still opt for a Corona jab is too low. Four responses show what actually drives those who have decided against the injection.

    According to the latest survey by the Insa Institute, 19 percent were undecided, while 54 percent stated that they basically did not want the vaccination.

    “I get a flu vaccination every year. With an active ingredient based on the new principle of action, however, I would rather wait two or three years and observe, because even the chairman of the German Medicines Commission said that little is known about long-term safety,” explained a young mother from Nuremberg.

    The politicization of vaccination is also a great cause for concern. “When politicians put open pressure on the Standing Vaccination Commission, it makes me feel very uncomfortable. And when prime ministers threaten that it has to be uncomfortable for the unvaccinated and that long-term deprivation of basic rights for a population group is openly discussed,” it begs the question of whether it is about politics or health,” she added.

    Two Germans who have had previous illnesses, said they were against the jab. One is undergoing chemotherapy: “There are still no reliable tests on how vaccination can affect cells after a tumor,” she explained. The other stated that her son had obvious vaccination reactions after the shot, which also scared her.

    A 34-year-old from Nuremberg said: “Both my girlfriend and I decided against a vaccination, mainly because we felt too little informed about the possible consequences. We want children soon, but we ask ourselves whether the vaccination can cause problems after all. I have not yet anyone in my circle of friends who have managed to become pregnant with the vaccination.”

    His colleagues were also skeptical, the Nuremberg citizen said. “You meanwhile distrust politics, especially because the federal government has changed its assessments so often.” One example is the vaccination recommendations for vaccines from AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, which have been changed several times. On the subject of masks, a few politicians even used it as an excuse “to fill their own pockets”.
