They can apply via the web crs.uzis.cz or registrace.mzcr.cz and telephone line 1221. According to the Minister of Health Jan Blatný (for YES), medical staff should continue to report through medical facilities, registration for them will begin on 18 January or no later than 22 January.
“The reason is that someone did not try to cheat. During the weekend, the system will be linked to the database of health professionals in the Czech Republic,” the minister said about later registration for health care professions. For example, general practitioners and pharmacies can also help seniors sign up.
When entering the form, the person interested in vaccination first enters a telephone number on the website, to which he / she will receive a PIN code for confirmation, which is a security measure against unauthorized login by robotic computer programs. The applicant will then enter his name, permanent residence, birth number and the number and name of his health insurance company, he will also choose the preferred place where he wants to get vaccinated.
“Registration and booking do not necessarily take place on the same date. It will certainly not happen that not all people who register on the first day will be given a deadline, because there are a limited number of vaccines,” Blatný said. When the vaccination center lists the first available dates, the registered applicant will be able to book them. The registration system will notify him of this in an SMS and he will receive another code to confirm his reservation. The system will create the date of the second dose automatically, it will be possible to adjust it.
Vaccination at different centers may be started at different times depending on their capacity or vaccine supply. There are currently 31, mostly at large hospitals. Gradually, large-capacity centers will also be established, for example in cultural centers, sports halls or other places with the possibility of parking a larger number of people.
The preparation of the reservation system was criticized by the regional governors. For example, according to the chairman of the Association of Regions of the Czech Republic, it was not possible to try in advance the onslaught that may arise after starting the application. Most were given access to the system on Monday, but they could only try a fictitious vaccination registration or data management that would be modified directly by their vaccination centers.
By Wednesday evening, almost 71,000 vaccinated people had reported centers in the Czech Republic. Newly, the centers must report everyone to the system on the day they were vaccinated. So far, 196,000 doses of vaccine have been delivered from Pfizer and BioNTech and 8,400 from Moderna.
Substitutes for vaccination can only be from people with entitlement
According to Minister Blatný, if there is a vaccine left in the vaccination center for people who do not show up for the booked appointment, the substitutes must only be from people who have a priority right as health professionals or seniors over the age of 80.
“The numbers will not be too large, because the vaccine is diluted and given only directly at the vaccination sites,” the minister said about the doses that may remain. One thawed bottle from Pfizer and BioNTech needs to be inoculated with exactly five to six doses, it can no longer be stored. “Hospitals have and may have lists of substitutes, but they must not be people who do not meet these criteria,” he added.
The priority group for vaccination includes about 830,000 people, seniors over the age of 80, people living in retirement homes and homes with a special regime, and all health professionals. According to Blatný, of volunteers working in hospitals, only people who are in the database of paramedics or can be vaccinated directly by the medical facilities where they work are preferentially registered.
They are followed by a second priority group of more than 3.7 million people. Among them are selected professions, such as police officers or teachers, but also older than 65 years and chronically ill with selected diseases.
The Minister also clarified some ambiguities regarding the vaccination of this group. Among the priority groups are, for example, carers of a person who belongs to a risk group, such as a senior or a disabled person. According to Blatný, it will be possible to check whether they are caring for someone, according to the list of people who receive the relevant social benefit as carers.
