A doctor has launched a blistering attack on anti-vaxxers and said they should be willing to give up treatments if they get sick.
Geneticist Wolfram Henn said conspiracy theorists should have to carry a note explaining why they don’t want to get the jab.
And he said that people who refuse the vaccine should not be put on ventilators or helped in intensive care when they fall ill.
The comments were made in an interview with German newspaper Bild, where Dr Henn said: "Whoever wants to refuse the vaccination outright, he should, please also always carry a document with the inscription, 'I don't want to be vaccinated! I want to leave the protection against the disease to others!
"'I want, if I get sick, to leave my intensive care bed and ventilator to others.'"
The doctor said it was reasonable to have concerns over the new medicine – but pointed the finger at those getting information from social media as being a problem.
He fumed: "I urgently recommend that these alarmists go to the nearest hospital and present their conspiracy theories to the doctors and nurses who have just come from the overcrowded intensive care unit completely exhausted."
As reported by LadBible, the doctor said in a separate interview that health professionals would always treat anti-vaxxers when they’re ill.
Vaccine boss insists jab works against UK Covid variant but 'more studies needed'
But he added: "It is perfectly clear that in the end, no one will forego treatment in an emergency. The point is that people who are very critical very quickly and say what they are against should say what they are for instead.
"And if they turn against something, then they should really think through the consequences of their actions to the end."
A recent poll suggested that nearly a third of Brits don’t want to take the Covid-19 vaccine.
Despite it being approved by regulators, nearly 50% of those reticent to take the jab said they don’t feel it is safe.
And 55% of those who said they wouldn’t take it said they were scared of side effects.
In general, more than a third of adults polled in early December said they would refuse to be vaccinated.
