As we have noticed so far, the coordinators of these campaigns say, in theory, that things seem to be working well.
Valeriu Gheorghita stated that for the second stage of vaccination, approximately 1,000 vaccination centers will be organized, with an average daily capacity of about 150 people / day.
In total, the authorities would have the vaccination capacity of about 150,000 people every day.
“It is almost impossible to vaccinate 150,000 people a day, not because we could not, but because we will not have these vaccines available in that unit of time,” said Valeriu Gheorghita, coordinator of the vaccination campaign.
In other words, the only impediment to vaccinating 150,000 people a day is the delivery of vaccines and in no case the organization of the centers.
In reality, those who have to implement the directives from the center are not clear about the facilities themselves. The situation is even more dramatic from one locality to another.
Ziare.com journalists called several vaccination centers following the following scenario: we acted as representatives of the prefecture and asked to talk to the people responsible for organizing vaccination campaigns at the local level, to find out what the real problems are. of Romania in the great vaccination campaign.
Those in the territory who are put in front of the organization do not know even the most basic things related to the vaccination strategy. They want to receive clarifications and ask for instructions. Instead, it seems that the only ones who have contacted them so far to find out their problems were us, the Ziare.com journalists.
Today we present the first episode from real Romania in the vaccination campaign.
Grajduri commune, Iasi county
According to the map of vaccination centers on the official website of the vaccination campaign, in Grajduri commune a first stage vaccination center was organized at the Padureni Grajduri Psychiatric and Safety Hospital. More precisely, according to the strategy, the medical staff were vaccinated here, and in the second stage of vaccination, the people who are hospitalized in this unit will also be immunized.
“Is the vaccination center the maximum safety?”, Asked the person from the town hall designated with the organization of the center.
“So I should talk to the hospital director, right? He knows. I should call him to see if he has a place to go. There are some problems there … I didn’t know I had a vaccination center. I hear the first one now. date from you “.
“Call me and tell me what I have to do,” the lady from the town hall tells us.
We contacted the manager of the Psychiatric Hospital who confirmed that until now the medical staff had been vaccinated, and in the second stage the patients would be immunized as well. “Fortunately for us, the atypical and hardships we face have saved us.”
“For now, considering that we are not a vaccination center for the general population, I can honestly say, you have nothing to help us with. Otherwise, everything that means needles, syringes, we have provided,” the manager told us. the hospital.
Instead, he told us that in other vaccination centers there is a problem with appointments.
“A person comes in the morning, one in the evening. What do I do with the rest of the doses? Throw them away?”, Asked the hospital director.
Contacted by Ziare.com, the representative of the Iasi County Prefecture stated that 54 vaccination centers will be organized in the county: 23 centers in hospitals (those already existing in the first vaccination stage) and another 33 in the county.
The spokesman of the Prefecture did not know if there was a vaccination center at the Stables.
“If he’s in the 23 centers in the first round, he probably will.”
Asked why the local authorities did not know of the existence of this vaccination point for the hospital’s patients, the spokesman of the Prefecture stated that “in the case of vaccinations made in the hospital, the town halls have no interference”.
“Probably the people from DSP know because they are entering the health line. If it’s a hospital, it means that this aspect has bypassed those from the mayor’s office.”
The spokesman also said that the centers will be ready by January 15, but clarifications are expected from the government.
Turnu Magurele city, Teleorman county
Two vaccination centers will be organized in Turnu Magurele. According to the Order for establishing the norms regarding the authorization, organization and operation of vaccination centers against COVID-19, spaces had to be arranged to serve as vaccination centers.
They must be connected to electricity and running water, be equipped with furniture, be compartmentalized, have the necessary sanitary materials for vaccination and comply with all protection rules in force.
However, all purchases are borne by mayors, there is no possibility of settlement at the Ministry of Health.
So, in Turnu Magurele, as in many other localities, the mayor’s office shrugs and wonders from what money they will buy everything they need.
“This period will take some time. Maybe even more than a year. Here you will need, you know, rolls of paper, masks, first aid kits. You have to buy goods that are not so cheap. We have nothing “We don’t have money from the budget. Only one injection of that adrenaline is 180 lei, as an idea. You can’t take just one”, said the mayor’s office employee.
“Let’s find a computer at the town hall,” he told us, “a scanner to scan people’s documents,” and it’s found.
“I had a fridge, but it’s from the school. They’ll need it, if school starts, it’s also a problem there. You have to give us some of those thermometers, somehow, if possible, to take the temperature inside the fridge. we also have it here “, the employee added, consulting the list of the necessary ones.
At Turnu Magurele we also need sanitary materials, vaccination kits, stethoscopes, sphygmomanometers and the list goes on.

Husi city, Vaslui county

“I don’t have what it takes, but I get it. I’m trying to sneak into the current legislation. I’m arranging a gym, but there is no exclusive legal framework, if you want me to tell you the right one.” said the mayor’s office employee in charge of the vaccination campaign.
The DSP told them what they needed and let them do it. I asked if they had storage refrigerators for vaccines.
“Vaccine storage? I have no idea I’ll tell you. What storage? What vaccine? When I bury three lei of soap”, said the mayor’s office employee.
