Techniker Krankenkasse, Germany’s largest health insurance company, reported that 437,593 of 11 million (1 in 25) insured individuals in 2021 had to undergo medical treatment as a result of adverse reactions from COVID-19 shots.1
COVID shots currently approved for use in Germany include Novavax’s Nuvaxovid, Moderna’s Spikevax, Pfizer/BioNTech’s Comirnaty, Johnson & Johnson/Janssen’s Ad26.COV2.S, AstraZeneca/Oxford University’s Vaxzevria, and Valneva’s VLA2001.2
Ministry of Health Acknowledges One in 5,000 COVID Shots Cause Serious Reactions
The German Ministry of Health officially acknowledged that 1 in every 5,000 COVID Shots given will cause serious adverse reactions that lead to hospitalization, permanent disability or death. The Ministry of Health said a person who gets four shots has a one in 1,250 chance of developing a severe adverse reaction.3
Following this announcement by the German Ministry of Health, the German Federation of Hospitals called for the vaccine mandate for healthcare personnel to be revoked. Henriette Neumeyer, vice chairwoman of the board for the German Federation of Hospitals said:
According to the current findings, it is not sensible and not transferable to continue.4
Techniker Krankenkasse reported that in 2019, out of 11 million insured people, 13,777 medical treatments were required as a result of vaccine side effects. In 2020, 15,044 medical treatments were carried out as a result of vaccine reactions. In 2021, the figure significantly grew to 437,593 medical treatments following vaccine reactions, an increase of more than 3,000 percent. Based on the Techniker Krankenkasse data, as many as 1 in 500 COVID shots causes a serious reaction.5
Company Board Member Fired for Revealing COVID Shot Reaction Data
In February 2022, Andreas Schöfbeck, a board member of BKK ProVita, one of Germany’s oldest health insurance companies, revealed that he noticed that the number of doctor visits as a result of COVID shot reactions among the millions of insured customers was no less than ten times higher than the official figures. According to Schöfbeck , no less than three million Germans would have had to visit a doctor as a result of COVID vaccinations.6
Schöfbeck said that he began to be concerned when BKK ProVita’s case management increasingly came across diagnoses of adverse reactions from COVID vaccination. He began investigating the data, which revealed that from the start of 2021 through the middle of the third quarter of 2021, 216,695 BKK ProVita policyholders had been treated for adverse reactions to COVID shots. Schöfbeck was then fired from his position at BKK ProVita for releasing the data.7
In comparison, the Paul Ehrlich Institute, Germany’s medical regulatory body and research institution for vaccines and biomedicines, had only registered 244,576 reports of adverse reactions due to COVID shots based on 61.4 million vaccinated people by the end of 2021.
At the beginning of July 2021, the National Association of Physicians of Statutory Health Insurance (KBV) confirmed that Schöfbeck’s estimates were probably correct. KBV revealed that nearly 2.5 million German ctizens went to the doctor in 2021 due to adverse reactions to COVID shots.8
BKK ProVita, KBV and Techniker Krankenkasse’s data shows that the actual number of severe adverse reactions from COVID shots is much higher than originally predicted.9
