Munich - The Corona numbers are rising again. The virus therefore remains in the political issue. Bavaria's Minister of Health, Klaus Holetsck, wants to further improve the treatment of people with long-lasting symptoms after a corona vaccination or infection.
Corona in Bavaria: Outpatient clinic planned in Augsburg for post-vac complaints
On Friday, September 29, during a visit to the Augsburg Hospital, the CSU politician emphasized: "It is very important to me that people with complaints after Covid vaccinations or infections are not left alone. They will find their first point of contact in general practitioner and specialist care." Long/post-Covid outpatient clinics are available for persistent complaints. "Augsburg University Hospital is breaking new ground and wants to set up an innovative and interdisciplinary outpatient clinic, especially for people with long-lasting and complex symptoms after Covid vaccinations. This outpatient clinic adds another important aspect to the existing care offer for post-vac patients," added Holetschek.
He hopes to get closer to the goal of better care for those affected by connecting the outpatient clinic to research. "After all, we still know too little about the often complex clinical pictures. Due to the current lack of scientific knowledge on post-vac syndrome, for example, the Conference of Health Ministers called on the federal government on 27 March 2023 to intensify and promote research on post-vac syndrome," Bavaria's Minister of Health continued.
