The Department of Health has opened a file on three health workers who allegedly sneaked in the vaccination against the coronavirus of a residence to relatives who were not included in the immunization plan. It has been revealed by the Secretary of Public Health of the Generalitat, Josep Maria Argimon, who has reported that they have been provisionally separated from their functions while waiting to know more details.
The incident, which Argimon has described as very “serious”, took place in a residence for people with disabilities in the Terres de l’Ebre health region, in Tarragona. As detailed by the Secretary of Public Health, the health workers in charge of vaccination, who belong to the Catalan Institute of Health (ICS), invited their relatives to take the dose of Pfizer / BioNTech.
“It must be very clear that we will not admit any situation of this type,” warned Argimon, who has insisted that they will sanction any irregular conduct in terms of vaccinating the population. “This does not represent the workers who are currently vaccinating, who do it in the morning, afternoon and evening, giving everything, doubling shifts,” insisted the secretary.
A A similar case occurred recently in the Community of Madrid, at the Valdesur residence. On that occasion, it was the residence workers who invited family members to take the doses.
