Latest: Merkel says vaccinates are not ‘guinea pigs’

Merkel, however, did not appear to agree with her deputy’s messaging in her Tuesday speech. The chancellor said that “neither Olaf Scholz nor me, and no one else” was a “guinea pig” in taking the fully tested and approved vaccines in Germany.

The long-serving leader said Tuesday in a speech before Parliament that “none of us was and is any way a guinea pig when it comes to vaccination.” Vice Chancellor Olaf Scholz, whose center-left Social Democrats Party currently leads polls ahead of Germany’s Sept. 26 elections, recently said that fully vaccinated people have been “the guinea pigs for those who so far have held off.” He added that he was vaccinated and others should follow. Merkel’s center-right bloc is struggling in polls ahead of nationwide elections.
