LIVE General practitioners will still get coronaprik in January

Even now that vaccination has begun, the coronavirus blown over from China continues to cause worldwide disruption. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 2 million people have died of the virus worldwide. In the Netherlands, about 13,000 people have succumbed to the virus. More than 100 million coronavirus infections have been detected worldwide. Follow the latest coronan news in this live blog.

The general practitioners will be vaccinated against the coronavirus this week and next week, reports the Dutch General Practitioners Association (LHV). Due to the rapid rise of the British variant of the coronavirus, all general practitioners have been agreed to vaccinate with the Moderna vaccine in the next two weeks, LHV says.

The association recently criticized Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health) for wanting to wait until February to vaccinate the general practitioners. According to LHV, this was because the first delivery of Moderna vaccines for general practitioners is too small to vaccinate general practitioners and staff.

With these forecasts and the pressure this puts on the direct emergency care of COVID, it is very important that we are able to maintain general medical emergency care, says De Jonge in a statement on the LHV website about the decision to proceed to accelerated vaccination. Precisely because of their important role in the vaccination strategy.

In total, about 15,000 general practitioners and emergency care workers can get a shot this and next week. Four weeks later, the second inoculation with the Moderna vaccine follows. The 23,000 other health care workers in general practitioners will receive the vaccine from AstraZeneca, expected in the first half of February, according to LHV.

LHV chairman Ella Kalsbeek calls the accelerated inoculation very good news. This is important for the whole care and for all their patients. Thanks to the hospitals for their help in the implementation.
