In Lower Saxony, a nurse gave saline instead of the COVID-19 vaccine, and was able to “vaccinate” more than 8,000 people. The “treacherous anti-vaccine activist” infiltrated the vaccination point, German daily Die Welt wrote on Tuesday.

According to the newspaper, “a scandal is spreading about a nurse who, in April, was at a vaccination site in Schurtens, Lower Saxony, replacing the coronavirus vaccine with saline.”

“According to the police and prosecutors, there are clear indications that the woman vaccinated more people with saline,” said Heiger Schulz, head of the coronavirus crisis team in Lower Saxony, in Hanover.

“To date, only six cases have been identified in which patients did not receive the correct vaccine. However, according to the province of Friesian on Tuesday, as many as 8,557 people may have received a female injection at the vaccination site in Roffhausen between March 5 and April 20” – he writes De Welt”.

“The truth is that we don’t know how many of them are unvaccinated or have only been partially vaccinated. (…) Unfortunately, the woman does not cooperate with the police, they are silent – explained Schulz.

To date, it was known that in six cases the nurse had to replace the BioNTech vaccine with medically harmless saline. As a reason, she stated that she broke the ampoule with the vaccine, and out of shame, she initially did not want to report this to the head of the vaccination center. “Her testimony was not true,” Schultz said.

County Governor Sven Ambrose wrote in a press release: “The fact that we have to make this appeal worries me greatly, as many of our citizens may not now be provided with the protection from coronavirus that they want and are entitled to. Therefore, it is now important for us to inform these people, answer their questions, and provide more vaccinations. Therefore, I ask all citizens to contact us if they receive a vaccination during this period.
