Truth : German Health Minister Did Not Admit Vaccines Are Dangerous!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Viral Video Was Edited
First, let me just point out that the viral video that was being shared by the likes of Steve Kirsch, etc. was edited to convey a different perception from the original video.
The viral video was edited from a segment of the heute journal (Today’s Journal) show by the German television network, ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen), that was posted on 13 March 2023.
The segment featuring German Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach starts at around 8:07 and ends at 15:03, lasting just under 7 minutes.
But for full context, you should start at 3:54 for the full segment on vaccine injuries, which lasts for over 11 minutes.
The viral video lasts only 45 seconds, naturally taking out all context of what Karl Lauterbach said in that long segment.
Fact #2 : Karl Lauterbach’s Words Were Taken Out Of Context
If you watch the full segment, you will see that the viral video was edited to frame Karl Lauterbach’s words out of context. In this part, he pointed out that severe vaccine injuries are very rare.
When the ZDF moderator, Christian Sievers, asked him why he continued to say in the summer of 2021 that the vaccines had no side effects, this was what Karl Lauterbach said:
Karl Lauterbach also pointed out that the severe adverse effects seen after vaccination are similar with the symptoms of long COVID.

Fact #3 : Reported Adverse Effects Not Necessarily Vaccine Injuries
Karl Lauterbach said that severe vaccine injuries were reported at a rate of about 1 in 10,000 vaccinations. That’s the REPORTED rate, not the actual number of confirmed vaccine injuries.
Back in July 2022, the German Federal Ministry of Health (Bundesministerium für Gesundheit) posted a reported side effect rate of 1 in 5,000 vaccinations, which was pounced on by anti-vaccination activist groups like Children’s Health Defense (CHD).
Then, as now, the German authorities were referring to the “reporting rate” for “suspected reports”. These reports have to be verified, as they may not be caused by the COVID-19 vaccines at all.
While the German system isn’t as open to abuse like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, they include reports that have nothing to do with the vaccine. All pharmacovigilance databases that collect such reports warn that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because :
- they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
- the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
- the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
- they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”
German health officials clarified that those reports have not been verified, and no causal connection with the vaccination has been established.
Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Greatly Reduce Hospitalisation + Death
What anti-vaccination activists don’t want you to know is that – the vaccines have been proven to greatly reduce hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.
In Germany, RKI stats show that even as COVID-19 infections rates surged, vaccinated people were far less likely to be hospitalised from COVID-19, compared to the unvaccinated.

Fact #5 : Karl Lauterbach Promised More Help
The crux of the ZDF segment is about how long it takes people to get their vaccine injuries verified, highlighting two cases in which the victims had to wait a year or so to get the vaccine injuries certified, only to qualify for a pittance in state assistance. Hence, these two victims brought on civil suits against BioNTech and AstraZeneca for their vaccine injuries.
In that segment, Karl Lauterbach basically promised to speed up the process of verifying vaccine injuries, and to improve treatment options for those who are truly injured by the vaccines.
You will note that Lauterbach does not say that Germans should stop getting the vaccines. That’s because, as he pointed out in the video – the benefits of vaccination far outweighs the risks.
Fact #6 : Karl Lauterbach Said It’s Better For State To Assume Liability
While Karl Lauterbach did explain that he didn’t sign the contract approving the “exclusion of liability”, his words were twisted out of context in the edited video.
Here is the full transcript of his reply, after he was asked about the exclusion of liability in the contracts signed with vaccine companies.
It should be noted that, even though the pharmaceutical companies have received liability waivers for the COVID-19 vaccines, governments have set up compensation funds to cover those liabilities.
As Lauterbach pointed out – this is probably better for everyone, as it avoids long, costly lawsuits.
