A German geneticist has said that those who refuse the COVID-19 vaccine should also carry a note refusing intensive care treatment if they are to get sick.
Wolfram Henn, a human geneticist, told Bild newspaper on Saturday, anti-vaxxers should waive the right to access ventilators and other emergency measures.
"Whoever wants to refuse the vaccination outright, he should, please also carry a document with the inscription: 'I don't want to be vaccinated!'" Henn said.
"'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 BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine has been approved in Germany and is to begin on December 27.
Henn slammed conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers, and told Bild people should rely on the advice of "people who really know their stuff".
"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," he added.
There have been a growing number of Germans campaigning against coronavirus measures.
In November, over 20,000 people gathered in the eastern German city of Leipzig to protest against the government's announcement of the new lockdown measures.
