December 13 – Bayern Munich and Germany star Joshua Kimmich will be vaccinated against the coronavirus after an infection forced him to be sidelined for a while. Kimmich has refused to be vaccinated, his procrastination on vaccines has made him the focus of the vaccination debate.
In an interview with German TV channel, Kimmich expressed “regret” for not being vaccinated. He tested positive last month and lost his sense of smell and taste for a while. He won’t play until next month because of standing water in his lungs. The doctors told him to rest and not let the situation get worse. He is expected to make a full recovery.
“Overall, it was hard for me to face my fears and anxieties, and that’s why I remained undecided for a long time,” says Kimmich.
German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach wrote on Twitter: “Joshua Kimmich’s decision in favor of vaccination deserves respect. “He was never a pandemic skeptic and just hesitated for so long. There are many people who regret their hesitation in the ICU. We must speak to those who hesitate in a more targeted way. “
In the House of Commons for the SPD, Lauterbach, an epidemiologist and health economist, was appointed Health Secretary last week by the new Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz and his response shows that Kimmich’s stance has stirred How to move the vaccination debate.
However, Kimmich said he did not see himself as a role model, so he persuaded others to get vaccinated. “It’s a decision that everyone has to make for themselves,” Kimmich said. “I find it good that many role models are using their position to encourage people to get vaccinated.”
