As we reported earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated that the vaccines against coronavirus might be needed ‘for years.’

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

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