An unlicensed vaccine? Police have stopped an illegal vaccination campaign at Lübeck airport

Police and city authorities put an end to an unauthorized vaccination campaign at Lübeck Airport on Saturday. Police in Lübeck said in the evening that it was suspected that the vaccine was not approved for marketing and that the action therefore constituted an offence under the German Medicines Act. 50 people are believed to have already been vaccinated with the vaccine before the action was halted by police and the city’s public order service.

When the police arrived at the scene around 3 p.m., 80 people were in front of the airport building and more were still arriving. There were about 150 people in the check-in hall who wanted to be vaccinated. According to information, the vaccinations were carried out in an office room prepared for this purpose.

Police seized syringes

Officers seized vaccine samples, used syringes and vaccination lists and wrote down the personal details of those present. Further details will not be released at this time and will be done in the coming week.

The airport is owned by Winfried Stöcker, an entrepreneur and medical doctor who has developed his own vaccine against coronavirus. In April 2020, his office confirmed that he tested it as part of a self-test.
