The new Minister of Health, Carla Vizzotti, implemented a system to monitor and have the traceability of the vaccination process of strategic personnel in the three areas of the State (Presidency)
This Tuesday the new Minister of Health, Carla vizzotti, implemented a system to monitor and have the traceability of the vaccination process of strategic personnel in the three areas of the State.
That is, for know which ministers, secretaries, officials or employees were vaccinated at the national, provincial and municipal levels. The objective is to expose to society who are the vaccinated of the political system and the reasons why they did it.
To carry out this control, a commission will be created that will be made up of representatives of UNICEF, the Office of the Ombudsman of the Nation, the National Immunization Commission, the National Congress, the Bioethics Committee and the Pan American Health Organization (OPS).
People considered strategic personnel must specify the scope of their function, the degree of exposure and the risk of their performance. In this way, the reasons why the State privileged their vaccination will be clear.
The vaccine will be applied in authorized establishments and this vaccination will be notified in the Federal Register of Nominal Vaccination. In addition, a public list will be established that will be updated periodically. With this new measure, the Ministry of Health is authorized to disseminate, through the media and / or make information on vaccination available to citizens who request it.
The data that will be publicly exposed are the Name and surname of the person, date of birth, ID, position or function, the vaccine that was inoculated, the number of doses, the date of application and the place that was made.
The national government tries to recover from the strong impact that the VIP vaccinated scandal generated on the credibility of the official management
According to government sources, most countries in the world have decided, within the framework of their vaccination strategies against COVID-19, to reserve doses for the strategic personnel of their governments.
On the other hand, the national government invited all provincial jurisdictions and the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires to carry out a protocol for requesting consent for vaccination, applicable within the scope of their jurisdiction. What they want in the Casa Rosada is that the provinces advance in the publication of the lists of those vaccinated, in order to accompany the transparency process initiated by the Government, as a result of the scandal that was unleashed by the VIP vaccinated.
Since Sunday, the Fernández government has tried to make a foothold and regain lost confidence. It is not enough to have displaced Ginés González García from the health portfolio and that is why they began to chain measures or decisions. Along these lines, Minister Vizzotti signed the emergency approval of the Chinese vaccine developed by the Sinopharm laboratory. It did so after the recommendation of the ANMAT and when the Government had already closed the shipment of one million doses by the end of the week.
On Monday the Government drew up a list of the 70 people who were vaccinated at the Posadas Hospital and had not been informed. In that list appeared ministers, officials, political leaders and their families, businessmen and journalists. The decision sought to close the chapter on vip vaccination, although it was far from doing so.
This Tuesday Minister Vizzotti and the Chief of Staff, Santiago Cafiero, they announced in a meeting with the health ministers of all the provinces, that with the million Chinese doses that will arrive this Thursday, they will begin to vaccinate the teaching staff.
In Argentina there are about 1,400,000 people who make up the teaching body. The intention of the national government is to advance in the vaccination of this group in the first month of classes and to be able to immunize the majority of teachers to lower the risks of returning to face-to-face classes.
