Priority vaccination for nursing hospital workers, residents, etc….plan to expand targets sequentially…focus on rapid and safe vaccination in Mapo-gu…to increase the vaccination rate and secure group immunity
[아시아경제 박종일 기자] Mapo-gu (Gu Mayor Ryu-gyun Lee) administered the first vaccination of a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) on the 26th.
On that day, 10 people, including doctors, nurses, and caregivers working in nursing hospitals and nursing facilities in Mapo-gu, were vaccinated at the Mapo-gu Health Center.
At the site where the vaccine was given, Kim Yoon-tae, director of the Nexon Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital, who was the 1st inoculum in Mapo-gu, also watched the process with President Moon Jae-in and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Prior to this, President Moon had a time to receive a report on the’Vaccination Implementation Plan for Nursing Hospitals and Nursing Facilities’ and’Mapo-gu Vaccination Plan’ at the Corona 19 Disaster Safety Countermeasure Headquarters in Mapo-gu.
Next, he looked at the vaccination preparation situation inside the Mapo-gu Health Center, and encouraged and praised the frontline employees of Mapo-gu, who have contributed greatly to corona response and quarantine, by operating a call center dedicated to Corona 19 so far.
Mapo-gu was able to preemptively cope with the spread of confirmed cases by completing a screening clinic equipped with an automatic negative pressure control system for all sections, which had been prepared before the outbreak of Corona 19, in May last year.
In addition, it was widely recognized that all former employees were able to be put into the COVID-19 field epidemiological investigation team during the explosive increase in confirmed cases in August of last year, so that the number of additional confirmed cases did not increase due to the delay in the disclosure of the path of confirmed cases.
In the future, according to the government’s guidelines, the city plans to give priority to residents and workers under the age of 65, such as nursing homes and nursing hospitals, to provide vaccinations and expand the targets sequentially according to priority.
The vaccination is customized by preparing procedures such as vaccination at nursing hospitals and facilities, vaccination at public health centers, and vaccination at nursing facilities by health center staff.
On the other hand, for smooth and stable vaccination, Gu formed the’Mapo-gu Corona 19 Vaccination Promotion Team’ from last month and completed preparations in advance to quickly respond and manage vaccine supply, vaccination, and adverse reactions.
In addition, in order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 mutant virus, which may spread, it is planned to increase the number of on-site emergency inspections, which were conducted twice a week, to five times a week by intensively strengthening the management of self-quarantines.
“As this is the first vaccination conducted nationwide at the same time, we thoroughly prepared everything from vaccination to preparations before vaccination and vaccination procedures so that it can proceed safely.” “Mapo-gu actively strives for rapid vaccination to secure collective immunity as soon as possible. I look forward to being able to recover to life before Corona 19.”
