We have the impression of having a two-speed vaccination in the Landes. On the one hand, three vaccination centers, in Saint-Sever, Mont-de-Marsan and Aire-sur-l’Adour, overwhelmed, but who have been vaccinating seniors over 75 years old since Monday. On another side, the increasing criticism of the Dax hospital center, which some consider late in the vaccination of older people. According to the Dax hospital center, the priority was given to caregivers.

Vaccination offered to all caregivers, that of seniors delayed

If it is difficult for seniors to make an appointment at Dax hospital to be vaccinated, this can be explained by the vaccination strategy implemented by the establishment and the Regional Health Agency. At the very start of the vaccination campaign, when only caregivers were concerned, the Dax hospital decided to offer all the staff of the establishment to get vaccinated. But faced with the number of volunteers, the doses were not sufficient. It was not until the receipt of new vaccines to ensure the vaccination of all caregivers.

Thus, on the day when the vaccination was opened to over 75s, the Dax hospital still had no not finished vaccinating his own caregivers. In addition, the hospital had, in the meantime, to ensure the vaccination of another priority public such as firefighters. It was therefore impossible for seniors to make an appointment, all the time slots were already reserved and devoted to staff.

The start-up strategy was not the same at the Mont de Marsan hospital. From the start, the hospital only offered vaccination than nursing staff over 50 years old, and those with serious pathologies. There were therefore fewer volunteer caregivers, so their vaccination was faster.

The Regional Health Agency explains that the Dax hospital center, particularly affected by the coronavirus, wanted vaccinate as many caregivers as possible : “We must restore the context, explains Didier Couteaud, representative of the ARS in the Landes. Until Monday, priority was given to health personnel. Dax has been strongly affected in its services, which is why the effort has been made more towards the nursing staff.”

According to the ARS, the other vaccination center, open Thursday, January 20, is intended to receive people over 75 years old. “It is a Dacquoise organization that was set up, with two centers articulated between them“, explains Didier Couteaud.

The center, located in Salle Amélie Charrière, will therefore be more dedicated to seniors, while the Dax hospital will focus on vaccinating caregivers.

The communication department of the hospital center ensures that the situation is improving: of the first meetings were open to seniors, immediately taken by storm, and vaccinations are now offered to seriously ill people. For example, during a visit to a cancer patient, he can be vaccinated directly on site, during his treatment.
