Hanover. Since the corona vaccination began at the end of 2020, 51 claims for vaccine damage have been approved in Lower Saxony. The majority of requests were rejected, as announced by the Hanover Ministry of Health at the request of the German Press Agency. Thus, a total of 827 applications for recognition of vaccine damage related to corona vaccination were submitted to the state office responsible for social affairs, youth and family by April 2 of this year, and 437 were rejected. In the other 339 cases the decision was still pending.

“Rejections occur mainly because a causal link between vaccination and existing health problems cannot be established with sufficient probability,” explained a ministry spokesperson. Anyone who suffers permanent harm to their health as a result of a recommended vaccination is entitled to care in accordance with the rules of the Federal Care Act. To achieve this, however, the health disorder must be recognized as a harm to vaccination.

20 million corona vaccines delivered to Lower Saxony

Very few people develop permanent health problems after vaccination. According to vaccination rate monitoring by the Robert Koch Institute, more than 20 million vaccinations against Covid-19 have been administered in Lower Saxony alone since the start of the pandemic. 6.4 million people across the country have been vaccinated at least once. Thus, only 0.01% of them submitted a request for recognition of the harm caused by the vaccine.

Lower Saxony’s Health Minister Andreas Philippi emphasized that vaccinations prevented serious illnesses and deaths. They also protected those who would not have the opportunity to protect themselves, such as children or people with previous illnesses. “Many diseases have been successfully eradicated through herd immunity,” the SPD politician, who is a doctor, told dpa. “And when it comes to COVID-19, thanks to a large proportion of people getting vaccinated, we were able to make the virus less dangerous and, ultimately, put the pandemic behind us.” (dpa/lni)
