Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel stated that the vaccines against coronavirus might be needed ‘for years,’ as DW reported.

Merkel drew such conclusions after the meeting with heads of federated states, representatives of the European Commission, and pharmaceutical companies.

"It's similar to the flu vaccine, where you re-vaccinate against the new mutation of the virus every time," Merkel said.

Besides, the chancellor reported that until summer, every citizen of the country might vaccinate from coronavirus. It is expected that Germany would get over 320 million doses of vaccine for 83 million of the population. At the first quarter, it is planned to get 18.3 million doses; at the second – 77.1 million; at the third – 126.6 million; at the fourth – 100.2 million.

According to Merkel, this goal will be achieved even if Johnson&Johnson and Curevac do not get the approval for their vaccines.

During the pandemic, 2.2 million cases of Covid-19 were registered in Germany. Over 58,000 people died. During the past 24 hours, over 6,500 new cases were observed.
