Prague – After the adjustments that resulted from the discussion with the regions and other actors of the planned vaccination against covid-19, today the government will discuss the vaccination methodology, as prepared by the Ministry of Health. The government is facing criticism that it came with the material late, according to the opposition, it is not clear who will be vaccinated, when and where. In the winter months, however, manufacturers will not provide enough vaccines to vaccinate widespread and non-priority groups. The topic will probably be dealt with by the Central Crisis Staff at its regular meeting today.
About 40,000 people were vaccinated by the weekend. According to the Minister of Health Jan Blatný (for YES), when there will be enough vaccine, it will be up to 100,000 a day. Now, compared to 100,000 inhabitants, the Czech Republic vaccinates less than Germany (0.57) and Poland (0.50) and more than Slovakia (0.36) and Austria (0.06).
According to Blatný, the acceleration of the current vaccination rate is the essence of the methodological instruction being completed. It is now being vaccinated mainly in hospitals where paramedics or paramedics receive the vaccine, and in nursing homes. In the comments, the ministry addressed the requests of various groups for priority vaccination; a number of other comments, according to Blatný, concerned the economic area, especially the operation of large-capacity centers or IT.
On Tuesday, the governors issued reservations about the central vaccination registration system. Some regions have not yet received access keys to the system from the government, or have failed to log in with them. According to the governors, the vaccination methodology gives the regions considerable freedom in who they prefer in vaccination. The system is scheduled to open on Friday for people over the age of 80.
The Czechia is also looking for inspiration for the organization of vaccination in Israel, which has already vaccinated about a fifth of the population. Negotiations between Czech and Israeli experts showed that more electronization would help and health insurance companies could invite people to get vaccinated. It will also be necessary to address the issue of the remaining thawed doses of people who do not arrive at the center for vaccination. Social networks could also help.
