Vaccination against Covid-19

Combination of different vaccines against Covid-19

A recent study by the University of Saarland indicates that a combination of vaccines from AstraZeneca and Biontech/Pfizer leads to a higher immunisation. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann have asked the Minister of Health, among other things, whether such a combination, once the results are confirmed, will also be considered in Luxembourg?

« Des scientifiques de l’Université de la Sarre ont rassemblé des preuves préliminaires dans une étude suggérant qu’une combinaison des vaccins AstraZeneca et Biontech/Pfizer suscite une meilleure réponse immunitaire de l’organisme au Sars-CoV-2 qu’une double immunisation avec le vaccin AstraZeneca.

À ce sujet, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Sur les 415.048 doses du vaccin AstraZeneca, commandées auprès de la Commission européenne, combien le Luxembourg a-t-il reçu à ce jour et combien de personnes ont été vaccinées avec ce vaccin à ce jour ?
  • Le gouvernement a-t-il l’intention de commander des doses supplémentaires du vaccin AstraZeneca ?
  • Madame la Ministre, si les résultats scientifiques mentionnés ci-dessus sont confirmés, auront-ils un impact sur la stratégie de vaccination du gouvernement et, dans l’affirmative, de quelle manière ? »

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.


What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.


A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
