“Unfortunately, vaccines are coming to general practitioners by dropper. Also at Asl, the stock of second doses is nearly exhausted. If this continues, the vaccination campaign by general medicine must stop,” reports Filippo Agnelli, president of the Barry Medical Association and the National Federation For Omseo.
“In recent days, doctors in centers and clinics have shown a wonderful spirit of self-denial to stop the spread of infection and thus the death rate by speeding up the vaccination campaign, treating the critical situation in our region. Unfortunately, if there were no vaccinations, despite the sacrifices and commitment of many colleagues On behalf of the organization, I express my support and solidarity with all the colleagues on the front lines who are often at the front end where those who have not yet been able to get vaccinated are angry and may find themselves in a fragile state. Of the citizens of understanding and cooperation, because doctors and patients are on the same side in fighting the epidemic. These doctors you are facing are the same doctors that you contacted for even a few weeks with the heroes and who today are ready to give you vaccinations as long as they are available. “
In Foggia, Dr. Salvatore Onuratti had to clarify that at the headquarters of the Medical Order, doctors who did not choose to be vaccinated in their clinics for various reasons began to vaccinate people at risk and that each physician had called and summoned his vulnerable patients for an average total of thirty each.
“To be able to call only thirty, it was necessary to choose as did the other doctors who were vaccinated in their study. Obviously, we are still at the beginning of vaccination, so we need to make a calendar based on the number of vaccinations that arrive per day: How many vaccines can I give, this is what I do.
Obviously, after creating an event that had a media response, the doctors who vaccinated it had greater vision, but I reassure everyone that in those two days it wasn’t just the 16 doctors who did it at all. Ask, but also the vast majority of my colleagues from family physicians who have received vaccinations. For the sake of clarity and avoiding classifications that are not and cannot be in this terrible year in which all family doctors worked in silence to help thousands of patients who were not sent to the hospital at home.
This vaccination campaign is complicated due to the lack of vaccines and the difficulty in managing bottles, but we started it only three days ago and we have to implement it by amending it day after day. It will take a lot of patience and above all not to shoot everything and everyone because the enemy was not the virus but the one who works daily to combat it.
Meanwhile, 92.5% of the vaccine doses provided in Puglia have been used, that is, 991,015 administrations of which 316,400 have been used for more than eighty years. Today, the region ranks third in terms of admission to ICUs, only preceded by Lombardy, with 27 cases in hospital and Campania, where there were 20 patients admitted to Intensive Care Units in Polian.
