BERLIN, GERMANY (SEPTEMBER 15, 2020) (CORONAPOOL) GERMAN HEALTH MINISTER JENS SPAHN, RESEARCH MINISTER ANJA KARLICZEK AND THE HEAD OF VACCINE REGULATOR PEI, KLAUS CICHUTEK ARRIVING FOR NEWS CONFERENCE MEDIA NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN HEALTH MINISTER, JENS SPAHN, SAYING: "It will be a voluntary vaccination. We are very confident that we will reach the necessary goal of vaccinations on a voluntary basis as there is a high vaccination acceptance. We need 55-65 percent of the population to get vaccinated to achieve the so-called herd immunity." NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN HEALTH MINISTER, JENS SPAHN, SAYING: "As to the Russian vaccine, we would like to know more as there is no real full transparency. There is dialogue between the institutes, on that level there is good working contact. But as to what information is being passed on and what is being withheld does not just apply to Russia but China where there is also a vaccine being developed and we don't always have the feeling that they are being transparent. If a well tested, safe and effective vaccine is produced somewhere in the world then we will of course look into it and potentially also try to get access to it but the basis of this would really be whether it was available, well-tested and effective." VARIOUS OF SPAHN TALKING (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN HEALTH MINISTER, JENS SPAHN, SAYING: "We want a safe and effective vaccine and not just to be the first. It is not about being the first or the fastest it is about producing a safe and effective vaccine. Yes, as quickly as possible but this is not the main priority as with vaccines it is vital that there is trust in it." VARIOUS OF MEDIA TAKING NOTES (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN HEALTH MINISTER, JENS SPAHN, SAYING: "I assume that in the end when we look at the number of acquired doses people will say, but that is more than the German population." WHITE FLASH (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN HEALTH MINISTER, JENS SPAHN, SAYING: "But noone can guarantee that this particular vaccine will actually make it onto the shelves. As there are always setbacks. And that's why we have made more contractual orders than we need, I will gladly give other countries in the world some of our acquired vaccine if it turns out we have more than we need but first we want to play it safe and make contractual deals with all the suppliers that look like they have a good chance of developing a vaccine." NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (German) HEAD OF GERMANY'S VACCINE REGULATOR "PEI", KLAUS CICHUTEK, SAYING: "To preemt the question I am sure is coming: The release of a vaccine depends on the results of phase 3 very strongly and the prediction that we would like to announce along with others that there will be a vaccine available by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021 could be true. Not necessarily but could be and I have already mentioned that I feel positive about this." NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS
