As we reported earlier, German Minister of Health Jens Spahn and Research Minister Anja Karliczek stated that they expected a COVID-19 vaccine to be available for the population in 2021.
However, it was noted that a vaccine would not be available to most of the population until the middle of the following year.
"We want a safe and effective vaccine, not necessarily to be the first," Spahn said.
Karliczek, in her turn, added that safety had absolute priority on that point.
