A “hole in the head” to close vaccination centers

A “hole in the head” to close vaccination centers

In 2020, the world was hit by a pandemic. At record speed, pharmaceutical companies succeeded in developing vaccines that contributed to curbing the pandemic. Swedish municipalities and regions have built their organizations as best they can to meet the enormous need for vaccination efforts required to curb a disease that has paralyzed the entire world.

The region of Östergötland became a model for Sweden, quickly building a vaccination organization made up of hourly nurses. When the pressure was at its peak, we vaccinated up to 2,500 people a day in Norrköping. Now the infection has subsided – but it has not subsided! Many are still getting sick from Covid, most are not getting sick anymore, but many still get very sick with Covid and have to be hospitalized and a number of people are also dying from their illness.

There remains a need to maintain a high degree of vaccination coverage. If we start “cheating”, there is a risk of a significant increase in morbidity among the most vulnerable groups, causing unnecessary suffering and a significant increase in health care costs.

Vaccination centers now also offer vaccines against, for example, influenza, TBE, pneumonia, whooping cough to pregnant women and more. If an individual suffers from one of these diseases, it often means very significant costs to the health care system and society.

Now the area will be saved! Officials produce documents for politicians, so they can make decisions about what to remove. It is a big task to lay the right foundation so that the right decision is made!

A proposal was submitted for a decision to close vaccination centers. The decision will be made this week. But what are the consequences of this “saving”?

Labor is a cost-effective form of care! It is based entirely on retired nurses' hourly rates (which are “cheap” because you avoid employer contributions). This means you can save staff day after day, based on the number of patients booked. None of these nurses will go into other health care activities to cover the nursing shortage, but the region will lose these “silver foxes.”

The business provides preventative efforts that prevent serious illnesses and increased costs in other businesses.
Workloads in health centers are increasing – longer queues!

Additionally, operations recently moved into completely renovated buildings, which the district has secured multi-million dollar contracts for many years to come. Hardly any savings!

Surely there must be a “hole in the head” to shut down this business?
