NOVENTI continues Initiative against Corona

Joining forces with Biontech, Curevac, Artes Biotechnology and Idt Biologika in the fight against the pandemic

NO MORE 2020 – GET VACCINATED

No more 2020: We can change it

in the fight against the Sars-CoV-2 virus, the population's willingness to be vaccinated plays a decisive role. According to a study by the University of Heidelberg, only 46 percent of people in Germany are currently considering vaccination against Covid-19. If the willingness to vaccinate remains at this low level, we will not achieve the necessary herd immunity, for which at least about 60-70 percent of the population must be vaccinated. Therefore, vaccination is both "an act of solidarity," as our President Steinmeier says, and essential to fight the pandemic.

Let's work together to reverse this trend and actively educate the population about what vaccination means for all of us - so 2020 doesn't happen again.

Create attention, provide education

Within the "Initiative against Corona" initiated by NOVENTI, we want to support you in this endeavor. In cooperation with leading German manufacturers of the Corona vaccine - BioNTech, CureVac, Artes Biotechnology and IDT Biologika - we have developed an educational campaign to raise awareness for the importance of vaccination against Covid-19. We have also implemented the motifs in the five most widely spoken languages in Germany (German, English, French, Russian and Turkish) and have been able to win international media partners for this. Because the pandemic affects us all, regardless of nationality, origin or religion. And together, we are sending out a strong message of solidarity in Germany

 

Now it's your turn

  • We can only stop the pandemic if enough people are vaccinated.
  • To achieve this, a vaccination rate of 60 to 70 percent of the population must be reached.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist about the risks and side effects of vaccination.

The most important questions about the Corona vaccination

How does the mRNA technology used in the corona vaccination work?

The mRNA (English: messenger RNA) is a copy of the hereditary substance (DNA) and serves in mRNA-based vaccines as a "blueprint" for the proteins of the SARS-CoV-2. Based on this "blueprint" of the mRNA, cells of the human body produce harmless proteins with the help of which the immune system builds up the best possible protection against the novel coronavirus. This mRNA is artificially produced in the laboratory, is not contagious and therefore cannot cause COVID-19 disease. After it has done its job, it is degraded via the cells. An mRNA-based vaccine does not use any adjuvants (e.g., aluminum, mercury)..

 

 Why is vaccination against COVID-19 so important?

Vaccination can protect not only yourself from contracting SARS-CoV-2, but also those around you who cannot be vaccinated because of health limitations. These people include, for example, those with immune deficiency, type 1 diabetes, respiratory or heart disease. The more people who get vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, the less COVID-19 can spread in the population. Protecting unvaccinated people from contracting SARS-CoV-2 by vaccinating others is called herd immunity. Achieving herd immunity requires that a sufficient number of people be vaccinated.

 

How does the principle of herd immunity work?

Herd immunity is achieved when a sufficient number of people within a population are vaccinated against a particular disease, thereby interrupting or slowing down the chain of infection. To achieve herd immunity against SARS-CoV-2, 60 to 80 percent of people must be vaccinated.

 

 Why is a second vaccination absolutely necessary with mRNA vaccines?

Vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 is achieved by two consecutive vaccinations (for example, 21 days apart). The second vaccination is essential to allow the immune system to build up the best possible protection against the virus. We therefore recommend that you make a follow-up appointment for a repeat vaccination as early as your first vaccination.

 

Why do I need to continue to follow the hygiene rules after the vaccinations?

To allow for the best possible protection against SARS-CoV-2, it is important that you continue to follow the general hygiene rules after both vaccinations: distance, hygiene, everyday mask, Corona app, regular air circulation. In this way, you are actively helping to protect unvaccinated people from infection.

 

Why can't the best possible efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 occur until about seven days after the second vaccination?

Already after the first vaccination against SARS-CoV-2, the immune system begins to build up protection against the virus. However, for some vaccines, the best possible efficacy does not develop until seven days after the second vaccination at the earliest. The reason for this is that the immune system needs a certain amount of time to build up the necessary number of antibodies that can protect against the virus.
