Open war against the ‘profiteers’ of vaccines in the new Health instructions after completing the first three weeks of the immunization campaign. The Public Health Commission has approved update 2 of the Vaccination Strategy in which the communities are urged to finish inoculating the elderly of the residences and their caregivers, to begin as soon as possible with the vaccination of all the health workers of a foot (not dispatch managers) even if they are not on the front line of the fight against covid dealing with infected patients.
The new instructions are known in full controversy after knowing that hundreds of doses, probably several thousand, that have been inoculated to politicians, high officials and health managers, close friends of those ‘plugged in’, even relatives of the people admitted to the residences. In most cases, the offenders have alleged that, as they had interpreted, they were indeed essential health personnel, although their occupation was bureaucratic management away from the risk of dealing with patients.
The new strategy clears up any confusion to these so-called ‘profiteers’. Above all, it is necessary to continue vaccinating people from the first group already known: residents and health and social health personnel who work in homes for the elderly and care for large dependents, first-line personnel in the health and social health field, other health personnel and health care and people considered large dependents who are not institutionalized.
In the event that the autonomies have already finished with the elderly of the residences, large dependents and caregivers, Health makes clear that the next objective of the ministries should be to extend immunization to “professionals in the hospital and Primary Care field not considered to be first line ”and that this and only this group is included in the so-called“ other health and social health personnel ”, in clear reference to excluding hospital managers or health officials who have assumed the right to skip the queue.
