Vaccination against COVID-19 will also be possible outside the outpatient clinic. This should help to ensure that vaccination is carried out as quickly as possible. Unauthorized prioritization of persons in the vaccination order against COVID-19 will be fined. On Thursday, deputies of the National Council (NR) of the Slovak Republic approved the government’s proposal for changes related to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The changes will also affect the Public Procurement Act, and the exemption from the obligation to comply with the standstill period should be extended to all direct negotiated procedures. The legislation was supported by 79 of the 89 deputies present, against seven. The vote closed the extraordinary meeting.
The € 10,000 sanction will concern compliance with the vaccination order for COVID-19. The approval of the amendment by Juraj Šeliga (For the People) and Ondrej Dostál (SaS) should clearly specify where and how the ranking method is to be adjusted. It should be a generally binding legal regulation issued by the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic. Thus, the conditions for carrying out the vaccination should not be determined, only the method of determining the order of persons. Sanctions are a response to the practice of prioritizing people in vaccination as opposed to prioritizing vaccination.
In addition to the ambulance, it will also be possible to perform testing. MEPs approved the proposal by Radovan Kazda (SaS). This should increase the possibility of testing in places where neither a mobile collection point nor a healthcare provider’s outpatient clinic has been set up. It will also be possible for students of the third and fourth years of the study department of a medical assistant over the age of 18 to perform a diagnostic test. Students and students will be able to perform the diagnostic test independently without the supervision of another healthcare professional. Healthcare professionals, in turn, will be able to practice their profession as volunteers.
The changes will also affect the Public Procurement Act. Exceptions to the standstill period should be extended to all direct negotiated procedures. The changes will also affect the law on economic mobilization. Enforcement of the obligations of economic mobilization actors in order to protect human life and health should be made more effective. The exemption from the obligation to register in the register of public sector partners will be extended until the end of 2021 at the latest.
The rules for the disposal of state movable property in the public interest, such as the donation of state movable property, which includes protective equipment, tests, vaccines, other medicines, medical supplies, will also be clarified. At the same time, the rules for conducting correspondence voting, the rules for calculating limitation and prescription periods or the rules for conducting auctions shall be adjusted.
The plenary also approved the amendment proposed by Petra Krištúfková (We Are a Family). Income from agreements on work performed outside the employment relationship, which is related to the implementation of measures taken by the relevant crisis staffs to deal with an emergency, state of emergency or state of emergency, shall not be considered as income for the purpose of providing a subsistence minimum. Income from such work will not affect the receipt of replacement maintenance, benefits in material need or allowances to compensate for severe disabilities.
Jobseekers will be able to participate in the implementation of sanitary and anti-epidemic measures to provide health care for the population “at a time of economic mobilization in crisis situations outside the time of war and state of war”. They can assist in area-based testing, the performance of sampling point activities set up by economic mobilization bodies or vaccination points. There will be no reason to exclude them from the list of jobseekers. It will also be possible to request inclusion in this list by letter, in times of emergency and pandemic.
