Cumulative number of vaccinated in monitoring who completed surveys, divided into participants vaccinated at intake and originally unvaccinated.
Most participants are between 50 and 60 years old. In comparison the age pyramid in Germany, younger people are underrepresented. The average age of the vaccinated is slightly above that of the control group.
The majority of participants are female. The proportion in the control group is even slightly higher.
The body mass index (BMI) is typical for a cohort in Germany (average BMI 25.7). The BMI of the vaccinated is slightly higher than that of the control group.
Most of the participants come from Germany, but increasingly also from Austria and Switzerland.
The high number of participants who rely on their own expertise is not surprising, as people who are willing to participate in a health willingness to participate in a health monitoring programme attach a high attach a high value to the topic of health.
The high number of those who rely on homeopathy is certainly due to the the fact that the control group was presented for the first time at a homeopathy conference.
Also not surprising is the higher rate of vaccinated patients among those who primarily treated with conventional medicine.

The 95\% confidence interval according to the exact Clopper-Pearson Clopper-Pearson method is shown.
Shown is a representation of the occurrence of respiratory diseases weighted by severity. occurrence of respiratory diseases. The monitoring records symptoms in 5 severity levels from very mild to very severe, which are assigned numerical values from 1 to 5. For the severity of a respiratory the severity of a respiratory illness, the severity of the cold, cough and sore cough and sore throat are added together to give an overall score of 1 to 15. 15, whereby the percentage of the maximum possible 15 is shown here.
