As early as Tuesday, Lauterbach wrote on Twitter that he had worked at the Leverkusen vaccination center all day.

Lauterbach canceled such an aid operation at short notice in mid-February - out of fear of protests.

“The police and security authorities saw a threat,” Lauterbach tweeted at the time.

At that time, the SPD politician had already announced that he wanted to have the Astrazeneca drug injected.

On Wednesday afternoon, Lauterbach also commented on the corona vaccine, possible further mutations and a strategy against the virus via Instagram.

The health expert Astrazeneca defended: "Not to use the vaccine would be completely foolish," he said, because: The consequences of corona disease are much more serious.

The politician put the probability of an infection with the virus for death or serious side effects around 1000 times higher.

He can understand any uncertainties, especially among those who are under 60 years old and have already received their first dose of Astrazeneca, according to Lauterbach.

The politician calls the strategy of giving these people a different vaccine for a second vaccination "plausible".

You don't know if that's a good approach.

From his experience, however, he could say that the first vaccination was problematic, rather than the second.

Studies are currently running on this.

Lauterbach expects a result in two to three weeks.

Regarding possible further variants of the coronavirus Lauterbach said: "In the laboratory there are still a lot of mutations that could still come" and for which no vaccine has yet been available.

In order to quickly reduce the number of new infections, Lauterbach brought up a curfew from 8 p.m. and a nationwide test obligation in schools and companies.
