Vaccine-maker BioNTech faced Monday its first legal claim in its home country of Germany over adverse effects allegedly suffered by some users of its Covid vaccines, more than two years after one of the world’s fastest and most extensive inoculation campaigns.

Several countries, including France and Britain, are witnessing legal proceedings where individuals claim that COVID-19 vaccines have caused harm to their health.

In Germany, a court case against BioNTech, the producer of the Comirnaty vaccine, was delayed after a challenge to the judge’s impartiality.

The plaintiff reported experiencing various symptoms after vaccination and is seeking damages.

Other lawyers are representing clients with similar claims, believing there is a link between the vaccines and their clients’ symptoms.

BioNTech stated that the number of liability claims is small compared to the doses delivered, and no proven causal relationship has been established.

The courts need to determine if the vaccine’s side effects exceed an acceptable level according to medical science.

Claimants can also seek compensation from the state for income loss.
