ワクチン接種計画の大きなズレ 軌道修正は不可能か

フィリピンでの当初のワクチン接種計画では年内で最大7千万人への接種完了を予定していました。

ですが、接種が始まって半月で21万人への接種が先日発表され、今後の接種のスピードアップについて政府が言及していましたが、単純計算でも1ヶ月50万人すら満たしません。
いくら医療従事者優先で副反応に備えながら進行しているとはいえ、整備網を拡大して副反応の課題が粗方解決したとしてもCOVID感染者が医療体制を圧迫している今、当初の目標は現実的な数値ではありません。

 

現状を踏まえた上でワクチン担当の責任者は年内のワクチン接種人数200〜300万人と見込んでおり、更なる向上のためには企業との連携が不可欠だと述べました。

フィリピンのワクチン問題は多角的な問題が多く埋まっているようです。

PH ‘lucky’ to vaccinate 2-3 million citizens by year-end: senator

MANILA – The Philippines will not reach its goal of vaccinating 70 million citizens by end of the year, Senator Imee Marcos said Tuesday as she called on health experts to lead the country’s pandemic response.

Government, which began its vaccination drive earlier this month, aims to inoculate 50 million to 70 million citizens by December 31 to achieve herd immunity, vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez earlier said.

PH seeks ‘steady supply’ of COVID-19 vaccines for ‘better Christmas’
“Pag binalangkas at sinuri mong mabuti ang sinasabi niya swerte na tayo sa 2-3 million by the end of the year,” Marcos told ANC’s Headstart.

(If you look at the numbers cited by Secretary Galvez, we’ll be lucky to inoculate 2-3 million by the end of the year.)

“No vaccine still even healthworkers are estimating it’ll take them somewhere between 20-44 years bago matapos ang (before we finish) vaccination and we accomplish herd immunity.”

The vaccines have yet to arrive due to a shortage worldwide but it does not help to block industries from assisting in the country’s immunization program, Marcos said.

“How can you operate when the huge donors are all blocked. They’ve been trying to import since October and November…we could have had the vaccines so much sooner,” she said.

“The solution is not to block them but establish safeguards.
Wag pagbawalan. Kailangan natin mabuhay.”
