[대구=뉴시스] Reporter Eun-Hye Lee = With the vaccination of a new coronavirus infectious disease (Corona 19) in Korea approaching one day ahead, a simulation training for Pfizer vaccination was conducted in Daegu.

On the morning of the morning of the 25th, the Daegu City Corona 19 Vaccination Implementation Team held its own Pfizer vaccination simulation training at the Daegu City No. 1 Vaccination Center, located in the annex of Daegu Dongsan Hospital, Keimyung University in Jung-gu, Daegu.

Ahead of the Corona 19 vaccination starting on the 26th, local government medical officials, fire fighting, military, and professional medical staff participated in the training prepared to improve medical staff skills.

Training was carried out in the following order: ▲ entry, ▲ reception and preparation form ▲ doctor’s examination ▲ vaccination ▲ abnormal reaction observation ▲ return.

Daegu Mayor Kwon Young-jin and about 40 local public officials participated in the role of citizens receiving vaccinations.

On this day, the simulation training was carried out in a serious atmosphere reminiscent of an actual vaccination site.

The vaccinators stood at a certain distance in front of the center and entered in turn following the guidance of the staff. Hand disinfection, body temperature measurement, and list creation were carried out together.

Those who entered the center soon filled out a questionnaire. The administrative staff went back and forth to make sure that there were no omissions in the questionnaire.

The medical staff in the vaccination area diagnosed the health characteristics of the inoculated patients based on the preliminary form. Those at high risk of adverse reactions were put on green stickers and paid close attention.

Actual vaccination was practiced in the inoculation room. Citizens are obligated to wait 30 minutes after injection and check for adverse reactions. The vaccinators also stayed in the observation area assuming the situation they received the injection.

Those who do not have any abnormalities in the actual vaccination can check vital signs such as blood pressure and receive guidance such as a second vaccination before returning home.

They also trained in emergency situations. It is assumed that a man in the observation area after vaccination complains of pain from anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction.

The man was immediately carried in a wheelchair and moved to the intensive observation room, and medical staff took first aid and contacted the paramedics.

The training was completed in about an hour and a half, as the paramedics arrived immediately and quickly moved the man to the emergency room.

A public official who participated in the training said, “It took about 40 minutes from waiting until the vaccination was generous. It seems that the elderly may have difficulty in the verification process such as filling out a questionnaire. If you vaccination in a large space such as a gym rather than a hospital, it will proceed more smoothly. I said the same feeling.

Daegu Mayor Kwon Young-jin, who participated in the training as an inoculator, said, “It would be good to inform you of the next vaccination date at the stage of issuing a certificate after vaccination. It is also necessary to manage the vaccinations so that they do not crowd together in consideration of the antibody formation period.”

The promotion team also demonstrated the preparation process for vaccination, including thawing and dilution of the Pfizer vaccine. Pfizer vaccines are known to be difficult to handle, such as storing at -70 degrees Celsius and using after dilution.

In the vaccine freezer at the vaccination center, two nurses are on standby to check temperature changes. Generators were also installed in preparation for disasters such as earthquakes and power outages.

Vaccination Adverse Reactions Expert Chairman Lee Joong-jeong, a professor at Keimyung University School of Medicine, said, “We prepare all drugs to cope with adverse reactions even when vaccination is given in an external nursing facility. If the procedures are followed, there will be no special problems.”

Hwang Seok-seon, head of the Daegu Jung-gu Health Center, who conducted the overall training, also said, “Through today’s training, we thoroughly checked how long it takes for the actual vaccination. Based on these exercises, we will be able to deal with emergency situations skillfully.”

On the other hand, Pfizer’s vaccine will enter the Daegu City 1st Vaccination Center on the 26th. Workers at medical institutions that treat COVID-19 patients in Daegu will receive Pfizer vaccination at the beginning of next month.

AstraZeneca vaccination for residents and workers in nursing homes and nursing hospitals begins on the 26th.
