Mayor mentions poor health on vaccination day as a reason for lack of vaccine stings in nursing homes.
A number of residents in nursing homes in the City of Copenhagen need to receive the first corona vaccination. In fact, it is almost the fifth of the 3400 residents in the municipality who are still waiting for the plug.
It writes Politiken.
On Friday last week, the message from the regions was otherwise that all residents of nursing homes who were interested in getting the vaccine had received the first dose.
In the City of Copenhagen, 19 percent need to get the first dose. In Region Zealand, 16 percent need to get the plug.
On Friday, the director of the Local Health Service in Region Zealand, Trine Holgersen, mentioned that some lacked the vaccination because they had been on Christmas vacation, were hospitalized or ill with covid-19.
Sisse Marie Welling (SF), who is the mayor of health and care in the City of Copenhagen, also points to, among other things, poor health on vaccination day as the cause.
– The connection among our nursing home residents is really, really high, and only 1-2 percent have completely refused the vaccine.
– But unfortunately not all citizens could be vaccinated in the first place, as they were either infected with covid-19, had another disease or were assessed as bad on the day by the vaccinating doctor, she says to Politiken.
Since December 27, people have been vaccinated against covid-19 in Denmark.
As of Tuesday, 117,104 have received the first of the two plugs required with the vaccine from Pfizer / BioNTech. This corresponds to 2.01 percent of the population having started vaccination, according to the Ministry of Health and the Elderly.
