The “Allgemeine Deutsche Automobil-Club e. V”, short: ADAC. A few days ago, a screenshot of the ADAC accident insurance website caused an uproar on the internet: it states that the insurance company does not cover any vaccination damage resulting from ordered mass vaccinations.
On January 20, Stefan Homburg posted this on Twitter:
For many, the implication seemed all too clear: now that the potential side effects of the Covid vaccine are becoming more and more obvious, the insurance companies are evading responsibility. This assumption is not entirely correct: In fact, this notice has been on the site for quite a while. You can already see yourself in the mainstream fact check necessary and points out that “according to the press office many years ago” this notice would have been written on the website. It is also quoted:
However, any consequences of a vaccination ordered by the state are not covered by the insurance. This exclusion has been part of the insurance conditions since 2007 and is not related to Covid-19. We distance ourselves from attempts to misuse the ADAC for irrelevant purposes.
Of course, the “fact check” did not check the facts. A look at the Wayback Machine shows that the notice in this form has by no means been on the website “for many years”, but only since July 2020 (am July 9, 2020 the website in question was designed differently, there was no talk of vaccination damage at the time – since July 22, 2020 the breakdown from the screenshot is online). The upcoming corona vaccination was well known at that time: even then, everyone was standing Sign of vaccination pressure. Also potential Risks of new technologies have already been addressed. So the timing of the changes on the site was quite striking.
After Shitstorm: Vaccination damage notice deleted
Well it is at its core nothing special, if accident insurance excludes benefits for vaccination damage – especially with the controversial Covid vaccination. The ADAC could have easily represented this simple fact publicly – that the insurance conditions had to be communicated more clearly against the background of the planned mass vaccination program from late summer 2020, because many people were likely to have looked around for appropriate insurance cover before the start of the vaccination campaign, is obvious anyway. However, ADAC has now managed to pour oil on the fire: one day after the screenshot of the insurance page was published on Twitter and shared thousands of times, the reference to vaccination damage was deleted from the website without a sound. Of course, this did not go unnoticed:
In the web archive is the January 21 version available here. In the meantime, the reference to vaccination damage has been included again in the list. Apparently, as a result of the shit storm on social networks, people temporarily panicked: This does not indicate a relaxed approach to the topic of Covid vaccination (which is supposedly so safe and effective).
ADAC participated in vaccination propaganda
It is in the nature of things that any discussion about vaccination damage caused by Covid gene therapies is massively charged, especially against the background of the impending obligation to vaccinate. It is quite understandable that a company like ADAC is reluctant to be drawn into this. However, at the same time, the ADAC considered it absolutely necessary to drum up the advertising drum for the vaccination campaign as part of the “#together against Corona” propaganda. So how much understanding can be expected from ordinary people who are plagued by the need to vaccinate? Ultimately none at all.
