the next steps of the vaccination campaign in Occitania


ARS #Occitanie held this #Thursday, #December 31, its very last press briefing of the year 2020. The #Deputy #Director #General of the #Occitanie #Regional #Health #Agency, #Dr #Jean-Jacques #Morfoisse, unveiled the latest figures for the #Covid-19 , but also the vaccination roadmap with us in the coming weeks. #Here’s what to remember:

A vaccination campaign in three stages, from #January 4

The #Pfizer / #BioNtech vaccine will be used in #Occitania. The vaccination campaign will start on monday 4 january. The 13 departments of the region are concerned. “”The first priority is the elderly in nursing homes or in long-term care units because these people are the most prone to severe forms of #Covid-19“”, specifies #Dr #Jean-Jacques #Morfoisse.

#In #France, vaccination will be done in three steps :

  • #One million people vaccinated as a priority by #February
  • 14 million in a second step
  • #And the rest of the population in spring 2021

880 establishments for priority elderly people

#Some 880 establishments are targeted as a priority, with 61,000 elderly people and 40,000 professionals. #Forty-eight nursing homes will already be ready the week of #January 4 in #Occitania and 10 long-term care units, establishments which had volunteered at the call of the ARS.

#In the region, the hour is collection of consent. #As a second step, consultations will be set up in health establishments to inform and offer vaccination to the elderly. #It is only after these two stages that the vaccination can be done, in the presence of a doctor.

#Deliveries will be phased out from next week, without a specific date for the moment. #Upon receipt, the vaccines will be placed in super-freezers. There are one in each department from the #Occitanie region, i.e. 13 in total.

#According to #Jean-Jacques #Morfoisse, “The side effects of the vaccine are quite mild, local rash or fatigue and fever“.

The epidemic still very present in #Occitania

#If hospitalizations are down, the ARS warns that the virus is still circulating in the region. There are 700 daily positive tests in the region. The incidence rate is still 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, i.e. double the alert threshold.

ARS #Occitanie once again invites the population to remain vigilant during this holiday season to limit the risk of contagion.
