“It is one more vaccine as we have had every year, what happens is that it has had a very great impact.”
The phrase corresponds to Dr. Lisandro Pendino, who works in the Intensive Care area of the Penna hospital and was the first person to receive the vaccine in Bahía Blanca against the coronavirus.
Sputnik V is already in Bahia: the vaccination campaign against COVID-19 begins
“You have to think positively, be optimistic, hopefully everything goes well,” he said moments after the first dose of Sputnik V was placed on him, which arrived from Russia and arrived in our city this afternoon.
According to health sources, initially around 35 people per day will be vaccinated.
At first, in the Penna hospital and only for Health personnel.
Next week another batch will arrive at the Municipal hospital.
In parallel, in 11 hospitals in our region, vaccination against the coronavirus will begin today, within the framework of a simultaneous operation that includes all Argentine provinces.
These are the San Martín (Adolfo Alsina), Anita Elicagaray (Gonzales Chaves), Eva Perón (Coronel Dorrego), Manuel Cabrera (Coronel Pringles), Eva Perón (Coronel Rosales), Alfredo Caccavo (Coronel Suárez), Joaquín Llambías ( Guaminí), Ramón Carrillo (Monte Hermoso), Alberto Castro (Tornquist) and Ignacio Pirovano (Tres Arroyos).
In all cases, the first doses of Sputnik V will begin by applying the health personnel, starting with those who work in intensive care units (ICU). That is, the most exposed.
As it is optional, the personnel of the public and private health system of the province who want to apply the vaccine must register on the page www.vacunatepba.gba.gob.ar.
