VFN began vaccinating paramedics against covid-19
As part of centralized vaccination, the General Hospital has set up a vaccination center in the premises of the Faculty Polyclinic on Charles Square. "We have prepared storage facilities and a pharmacy, and we currently have several freezers up to minus eighty degrees Celsius. They are located at the Department of Mass-produced Medicinal Products in the Karlov Children's Complex. We also solved the transport of samples, patient organization and we have prepared premises where we will be vaccinated. The whole process of transport, storage and organization has been, and will certainly be, challenging. But we are determined to handle everything, " said the director of VFN prof. MUDr. David Feltl, Ph.D., MBA, who was one of the first to be vaccinated against covid-19 yesterday. "The reason is clear to me, to send a signal to the public that there is no reason to be afraid. Vaccination will help us return to normal life as we are used to. " The first batch, ie 975 doses of Pfizer vaccine, is shared by the General Hospital with the Royal Vinohrady University Hospital (FNKV).
Vaccination of paramedics from both hospitals began on Sunday, December 27, and the first to be vaccinated are paramedics working in covid wards, ICUs, AROs, emergency departments or, for example, infectious care wards. Subsequently, medical staff aged 65 and over will be able to be vaccinated, as will other staff. Preparations for vaccinating the public, which is to take place in January next year, are also in full swing at the General Hospital.
