German Health Minister: One in every 10,000 Covid vaccinated had “Disabling Adverse Effects”

German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach , who has previously claimed that the COVID-19 vaccination is free of side effects, admitted last week that he was wrong, saying that adverse reactions occur at a rate of one in 10,000 doses and can cause “serious disabilities”.
On Aug. 14, 2021, Lauterbach said on Twitter that the vaccines had "no side effects," further questioning why many Germans had refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

During an interview with ZDF's “Heute Journal” on March 12, Lauterbach, interviewed by host Christian Sievers, received questions about the claims made in 2021 and whether or not these were confirmed by official data.

Lauterbach responded that the tweet from two years ago was "misleading" and an "exaggeration" he had made at the time, noting that it "didn't represent my true position."

“I've always been privy to the numbers and they've remained relatively stable… one in 10,000 (has serious adverse effects),” Lauterbach said. “Some say there are many, others that there are not so many.”

Lauterbach's remark about adverse vaccine events came after the German network aired a segment of several Germans who were seriously ill after receiving the shot, including a 17-year-old gymnast who previously competed in championships. German artistic gymnasts before being hospitalized for more than a year shortly after receiving the second dose of BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine.

What does it say to those who have been affected [by vaccine injuries] ?” Sievers asked Lauterbach.

What happened to these people is absolutely staggering, and any single case is one too many ,” Lauterbach replied. “ Honestly, I am very sorry for these people. There are severe disabilities, some of which will be permanent ."

Steve Kirsch, executive director of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, disagreed with Lauterbach, but praised the health minister for making "progress" when he compared his latest remark with his previous comments on safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine. “The true serious adverse rate is the number of cases that occur each day is about 100 times the figures Lauterbach cited – “closer to 1 in 100 doses” and “for death, it is ~1 in 1,000 doses” ,” Kirsch said on Twitter.

As of October 31, 2022, the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut had received a total of 333,492 individual case reports on suspected adverse reactions or side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine in Germany, according to official data (pdf) released in December 2022 by the body medical regulator involved in research on vaccines and biomedicines.

“The number of individual case reports per month peaked in December 2021 and continued until the summer,” according to the federal agency, which depends on the German Ministry of Health.

Despite these findings, the country's Ministry of Health website says, as of March 16, that "modern vaccines are safe and adverse effects only occur in sporadic cases."

Obviously this happens in Germany, but you will never see Speranza make the same admissions as her German colleague.
