The Ministry of Health will propose this afternoon to the communities to maximize the monitoring and control of the vaccination process in order to detect “the improper use” of drugs, applying “the preventive and corrective measures that are necessary” to ensure compliance with the plan, according to EFE. It thus appears in the draft of the agreement that Health will take to the first meeting of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System that Carolina Darias will chair. The importance of “coordination, collaboration, loyalty and transparency as” key principles for the success of the vaccination process is underlined in the text.
The doubts with the supply leave in suspense the objective of Spain to vaccinate all the majors before April
“It is a strategy for the entire country, which is governed by a robust ethical framework” and in which it was decided to prioritize in a first stage, in which the doses are more “limited”, to four population groups: inmates and workers of residences and centers for people with disabilities, first-line health workers and other health and social health personnel and large non-institutionalized dependents. The draft document does not specify in principle what those preventive and corrective measures would be.
On the order of business for this afternoon’s meeting – to which Darias has already attended regularly for several months as Minister of Territorial Policy -, as elDiario.es has learned, there is a review of the epidemiological situation in the country – which almost reaches 900 cases per 100,000 inhabitants of cumulative incidence–, the operation of the Radar-Covid application, and the updating of information related to the vaccination process and the agreement on the application of the state strategy. These “corrective” measures would enter this last point.
The meeting comes after the scandals between politicians, managers and even bishops for having skipped the vaccination order and having already injected the dose. It has cost him the resignation of the directors of Ceuta and Murcia, and the position of several mayors. Ximo Puig, president of the Valencian Community, has determined that the people who have given this first dose in their territory –both for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, it takes two to achieve full immunization– irregularly will not get the second, but for now there is no common guideline by the Ministry of Health for these cases. In Spain, with data from yesterday Wednesday, 1,356,461 doses of Pfizer or Moderna have been administered, there are 173,066 people with the full schedule already received.
