See in the video: Merkel vaccinated with Astrazeneca - “Key to Overcoming the Pandemic”.
Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was vaccinated with the Astrazeneca vaccine in Berlin on Friday. In a tweet from government spokesman Steffen Seibert, it was said: “I am delighted that I received the first vaccination with AstraZeneca today. I thank everyone who is involved in the vaccination campaign - and everyone who is vaccinated. Vaccination is the key to overcoming the pandemic. ”Merkel is 66 years old and is therefore one of the group of people for whom vaccinations with AstraZeneca are still unreservedly recommended. The Vice Chancellor and Finance Minister Olaf Scholz was also vaccinated with the AstraZeneca preparation on Friday. There have been many discussions about the AstraZeneca vaccine so far, as cerebral vein thrombosis can presumably occur in very rare cases, especially in younger women. Therefore, this vaccine should no longer be used in anyone under the age of 60.
