So far, 10.26 million vaccine doses have been destroyed – “due to exceeding their shelf life,” as the health ministry insists. 17 million COVID-19 vaccine doses remain in stock. Vaccine procurement continues happily. Health Minister Johannes Rauch (Greens) has ordered an additional 1.9 million Covid vaccination doses.
The eXXpress report now calls on FPÖ federal chairman Herbert Kickl (FPÖ): “The pull out of the respective contracts with the pharmaceutical companies – the sole beneficiaries of this waste of money – is long overdue,” he explains.
FPO leader says that the Corona epidemic is finally over. Last week, an average of only 36 people were vaccinated against Covid per day. It can be found on the imfdaten.at homepage, operated by the umbrella association of social insurance providers. Kikal asks, “Why did Green Health Minister Rauch order an additional 1.9 million Covid vaccination doses for the autumn?” “So that pharmaceutical giants can make even bigger profits at the expense of taxpayers?”
FPÖ leaders also mention ongoing suspicions of corruption regarding vaccine procurement at the EU level. It concerns negotiations between Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Pfizer management, which are still kept strictly confidential.
Kikal demands that millions of taxpayers’ money should be immediately invested in tackling the Corona crisis and compensating victims of vaccine damage. There is also an urgent need for funds to expand the health system. Kickle criticizes, “Countless people were literally pushed into the needle with enormous pressure and promises that vaccination was harmless.”
But this promise turned out to be false, the consequences of which are now coming to light. “But the government is indifferently abandoning the injured victims of the Covid vaccine. Ultimately there must be justice for them – by taking them seriously and offering them prompt, low-threshold and non-bureaucratic assistance.”
