The millionaire Winfried Stöcker, who is said to be behind the vaccination campaign in Lübeck, was noticed six months ago when he said he had vaccinated around 1000 people with his vaccine. In Görlitz, in his native Saxony, he is no stranger.
After all, AfD donor Stöcker is a doctor, worked for a long time at the University of Lübeck, holds several patents and successfully ran his laboratory diagnostics company, Euroimmun, which he founded in 1987. But he is not authorized to develop a vaccine independently and also to inject it.
According to information from “Bild”, 107 people were found who supposedly wanted to immunize themselves against corona with the vaccine during the questionable campaign. It is unclear how the action came about at all. The vaccination was carried out in an office room specially prepared for this purpose. At that time there was no air traffic at the small regional airport.
The remedy is supplied in components that a doctor then mixes up. Therefore it is formally not a vaccine and Stöcker avoids time-consuming approval studies. The mixture should be a so-called dead vaccine. Coronavirus antibodies were reportedly found in patients who had received Stöcker’s vaccine earlier. The Charité virologist Christian Drosten, to whom Stöcker had sent his own blood sample without being asked, said in March: “The mere detection of antibodies does not confirm the effectiveness of a vaccine.”
Stöcker himself sees nothing illegal in his action: “Two doctors have vaccinated,” he told the “Bild”. “Doctors have the right to mix something up that they believe will help people. We are responsible to the patient, but not to the state. ”The police officers in Lübeck secured vaccination samples, used syringes and vaccination lists and recorded the personal details of those present.
