Lauterbach, a politician of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), initially denied that COVID-19 vaccines had negative side effects back in the summer of 2021.
German government data shows that more than 330,000 people in the country have COVID-19 vaccine-related injuries. Many of them include young people who have suffered severe side effects.
In an interview with public service broadcaster ZDF's "Today Journal' on Sunday, March 12, Lauterbach said that one in every 10,000 vaccinated individuals suffer serious side effects. He added that the drugs for treating "post-vac" are not yet available. Worse, health insurance companies’ claims for coverage are very limited in Germany.
After backtracking, Lauterbach was asked about a claim he made in a tweet in 2021. In his post, he said that vaccination was "free of side effects."
Lauterbach then tried to change the topic by adding that it was an exaggeration he made in "an unfortunate tweet." Still, the official is adamant that he did not see any failure on the part of the Ministry of Health. He also claimed that severe side effects due to the vaccines are rare.
"Severe vaccination damage, based on data from the Paul Ehrlich Institute or the European licensing authority, is on the order of less than one in 10,000 vaccinations. So it's not that vaccine damage is that common," said Lauterbach.
German users took to social media to criticize Lauterbach. For example, University of Hanover professor Stefan Homburg called out Lauterbach for saying that he was "all aware" of the registered vaccination damage, yet he denied them and pushed for mass vaccination.
According to Welt news, people severely affected by COVID-19 vaccines are working together to sue vaccine manufacturers. However, the odds are often against those suffering vaccine injuries because manufacturers can often hide behind legal protections.
Many of these victims, like 20-year-old Alina Adams, were perfectly healthy before getting vaccinated. Adams fell ill one day after getting the vaccine. Now, Adams is mostly confined to a wheelchair and has been diagnosed with "post-vac syndrome."
Homburg also challenged the official figures from Lauterbach, who claimed there was only one severe case in 10,000.
"At 1:10,000 Lauterbach downplays the risk of serious vaccine damage. His own ministry assumes 1:5,000 without unreported cases, which makes 1:1,250 with four doses," said Homburg.
People are now calling for vaccine manufacturers to shoulder some of the financial burden among people experiencing adverse side effects because of COVID-19 vaccines. (Related: WHO whistleblower: Globalist puppets seek full control over humanity through deployment of COVID-19 pandemic treaty.)
In the interview, Lauterbach mentioned that he is calling for pharmaceutical companies to share in compensation for the victims.
He announced that he started a program with his ministry to investigate the consequences of "Long Covid and Post Vac (vaccination damage)" and to improve care for people suffering vaccine injuries.
The Paul Ehrlich Institute has received at least 333,492 suspected cases of adverse reactions and 50,833 suspected cases of severe adverse reactions "after basic immunization plus booster vaccinations" through December 2022. Severe side effects linked to COVID-19 vaccines include heart inflammation, neurological damage and paralysis.
