Does anyone care about doctors in the private sector? The answer appears to be no. If we see that nearly 50% of doctors and health workers in the private sector have not been vaccinated. “, They write in a statement of Syndicate of Physicians of Special Activity. This occurs despite the fact that colleagues are part of the first group in the priorities set by the authorities and being the group most exposed to the virus. Not forgetting that if the health team gets sick, then the welfare of the population is at risk. “
They claim that vaccinating health workers is a public health issue and should be given priority.
In order to help solve this situation and speed up the process, Association of Special Activity Physicians (AMAP) Holding meetings with the ministries of health in the state and the city of Buenos Aires to be authorized with the Medical Union of the Federal Capital to apply the vaccine, not only to doctors but to all members of the health team. “We know there isn’t enough yet,” they say, “but it is also true that in some cases there have been organizational problems.”

The aim was to help workers in private health service providers get vaccinated as quickly as possible. They added, “While negotiations were progressing, news of the so-called vaccination of VIPs spread throughout the country, a fact that our union rejects and rejects, but it was dealt with in an inappropriate way and left the entire vaccination plan questionable.”
In the field of politics, the other side has emerged, the counterattack: The complaint lodged with the judiciary regarding the privatization of vaccination in the Buenos Aires government. That by saying, We are in the middle of a battle between the ministries and the decisions of justice. The result has been the politicization and legalization of the situation in this pandemic context, which should be excluded from these conflicts. The truth is that the most basic personnel par excellence remain largely unscathed in the midst of a battle unrelated to health. “
They concluded: “The judges’ decision, which affirmed that GCBA should refrain from signing new agreements, leaves our subsidiaries in a situation of greater vulnerability, namely, the doctors who work in clinics and sanatoriums in the city. Crack came to vaccines. Ministers and officials who are crossing accusations to see who committed the biggest offense and at the same time what is really important are unclear. Again, underestimating medicine. “
A few days ago, two doctors from Buenos Aires who had not yet been vaccinated died. The news shocked the country. It was the case of a doctor from the emergency service of Fernandez Hospital and head of the department of plastic surgery at Hospital de Quemados, who were injured and died.
