National Coordinating Committee for SARS-CoV-2 vaccination activities has been established


At the proposal of the Ministry of Health, the Executive approved, in its latest meeting, the Memorandum on the establishment of the National Coordinating Committee of the activities regarding the vaccination against SARS-CoV-2.

The Committee is an inter-ministerial body, without legal personality, under the direct subordination of the General Secretariat of the Government and the coordination of the Prime Minister.

According to a press release of the Health Ministry sent on Thursday, the National Committee will present the strategy and action plan on COVID-19 vaccination and will implement them.

The leadership Committee is provided by a chairman appointed by decision of the Prime Minister, and the activities will be organized in three priority areas:
* communication
* logistics
* medical activity - actual vaccination and monitoring of post-vaccine adverse reactions (RAPI).

The role of the Committee is to organize and coordinate the activities on vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, on the following types of responsibilities:

* information and communication for medical staff and the general population

* organizing the vaccination centers and coordinating the development of their activity

* ensuring the logistical process necessary to carry out the activities related to the vaccination process

* identifying the need for the vaccination teams human resources

* elaboration of working procedures necessary for the unitary implementation of the activities related to the vaccination process

The primary infectious disease doctor Valeriu Gheorghita from the Central Military Hospital has been appointed coordinator of the national anti-COVID-19 vaccination campaign. He said that says he is convinced that a vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 infection may be "the most effective and shortest" way in which the population can return to normalcy.

"Vaccination in general decreases antibiotic use. Influenza vaccination decreases antibiotic use and thus decreases the risk of developing germ resistance to antibiotics. Regarding the infection with SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19 disease, we must all understand that we have, after all, extraordinary news, that of the prospect of a vaccine in the near future, which is why we have a ray of hope, we have a reason to move forward and a waiting horizon, and I strongly believe that it is the most efficient and shortest way in which we can all return to normalcy, as we knew before," Gheorghita said on Thursday during the debate "Awareness of antibiotic use during the COVID-19 pandemic," organised by DC Media Group.

He pointed out that antibiotics are among the drugs that "the more they are used, the more they lose their effectiveness" because pathogens have the ability to adapt and become resistant to them.

Valeriu Gheorghita also drew attention to the toxicity and side effects that the "irresponsible" use of antibiotics can generate. Asked what he conveys to people who stockpile Azithromycin, considering that it would be useful in treating the infection with the new coronavirus, Gheorghita said that this is not justified.
