Hall. With the increase in corona infections in Saxony-Anhalt, the number of so-called vaccination breakthroughs is also increasing. This is reported by the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung (Thursday edition). These are Covid diseases in people who have already been vaccinated twice against the virus: 1,881 such breakthroughs – as of Tuesday – the Ministry of Health in Magdeburg has registered nationwide since the vaccinations began, as it announced on MZ request. As recently as mid-September, the number was 516, which corresponds to a three-fold increase within six weeks – and the trend is clearly increasing.
“The main problem is not the vaccination breakthroughs,” said Thomas Dörrer, Vice President of the State Medical Association. Serious disease courses are very rare in vaccinated people. It is now all the more important to promote the booster vaccinations, said Dörrer. He appealed to the elderly and people with previous illnesses to make an appointment with their family doctor. So far, only 1.8 percent of people in Saxony-Anhalt have received a third injection, as the MZ’s Ministry of Health announced.
