Calls about Covid-19 vaccine clog health centers – Society


Health center phones keep ringing and there is an overload of emails, a consequence of the start of vaccination against Covid-19 of about 900,000 people over 80, and over 50 with associated diseases. “There is an unnecessary burden on services, not least because we have no more information to give,” explained the president of the National Association of Family Health Units, Diogo Urjais. The search for the vaccine led this Wednesday the Prime Minister, António Costa, to say at the beginning of the vaccination process in health centers that “it is not worth rushing to local health units. Each one will be contacted by SMS ”.2424 is the number assigned by Anacom for sending SMS to the population in the scope of vaccination. Diogo Urjais recalls that, after receiving the SMS, it is necessary to reply that he accepts the vaccination: the reply will allow the scheduling to be effective.
The second phase started this Wednesday in Lisbon in two stations and this Thursday is extended to seven more in the North region. Opening hours will be from 8 am to 8 pm, including weekends, and by the end of the week, 1200 people will be vaccinated.People who are not followed by a family doctor must register online at the Ministry of Health’s website. Next week, vaccination will be extended to the 55 health centers in the continent. As of the 15th, the system will have at least one vaccination post in each of the 278 municipalities on the continent.

” The problem is that there are not enough vaccines”
“ The biggest problem is that there are no vaccines and there is no certainty when there will be enough”, said the president of the National Association of Family Health Units, Diogo Urjais, recalling that as for the flu “we have the capacity to vaccinate more than two million in three months ”.
