“Vaccinate, vaccinate,” Health Minister Alain Perset, 49, wrote on Twitter. Whenever possible, the longer the duration: Switzerland has received 620,000 doses of vaccines since Friday alone.
More than 2.6 million doses of vaccine have already been administered and the cantons are increasing the vaccination rate. Bercier also welcomed the good exchange on Monday with the Health Managers Conference (GDK) on the topics of vaccination, stage model and COVID-19 certification.
Counties can prick up to 100,000 times a day
According to the GDK, cantons can expect more than 2 million doses of Moderna and Pfizer / Biontech in May. This is another increase compared to April. The GDK announced on Monday at the request of the SDA news agency that “the cantons are ready for these quantities”. You already have the infrastructure to conduct about 100,000 vaccinations per day.
With continuous deliveries and confirmation as early as possible from the manufacturer, the goal remains, according to the GDK, a realistic one to be able to deliver the first vaccination to everyone by the end of June. According to the GDK, the cantons have recommended since mid-April not to keep the second dose of the vaccine as a reserve, but to mainly secure it through confirmed or anticipated delivery quantities.
