Croatian vaccination process – What if I am absent for my second dose?
May 21, 2021 – How is the Croatian vaccination process going and what is the situation for those who will leave their registered place of residence during the summer, but will need their second dose?
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, what will the Croatian vaccination process and the receipt of the second dose of the vaccine look like in the coming season, which will be full of summer vacations in Croatia with people staying longer outside their home? place of residence? All this was explained to the Croatian Institute of Public Health, which informed people to contact the health services of their registered places of residence.
” It is possible that people who will be away from their place of residence during their second scheduled dose of vaccine could be vaccinated before or after leaving the coast or even on vacation with a doctor of their choice or in health institutes. public health if the recommended vaccination interval allows, ” the Institute said.
The recommended interval between the first and second dose of Comirnaty (Pfizer) is three to six weeks, Moderna four weeks (it can be extended to six weeks if necessary) and for Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) this recommended interval is included between four and twelve weeks. .
More specifically, the Janssen Johnson & Johnson vaccine is administered in a single single dose.
If urgently needed, all of these vaccines can be given a second dose four days before the first recommended date. People can also be vaccinated where they will be staying at the time scheduled for their second dose of the vaccine.
” We would like to note that the organization and planning of vaccination, given the distribution plan and the characteristics of these vaccines (which arrive in certain quantities that are planned), we need prior information on the number doses and types of vaccines planned.
Therefore, we would like to ask people to announce and pre-arrange their second dose of vaccination with the doctors at their place of temporary residence, or at the relevant health center there, so that the necessary additional doses can be scheduled. and on the condition of understanding that this is not always possible at the requested time, ” they said from the Institute as the Croatian vaccination process accelerated.
What will this procedure look like in practice with regard to tourist areas, mainly in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, whose tourist destinations on the coast and on the islands see their population increase several times during the summer? Dr Vladimir Micovic answered this question for Novi List.
The idea is that people are vaccinated before they leave their places of residence and get vaccinated in the areas where they live. But of course, if they are in our area, we will do our best to get them the necessary vaccine. To this end, we will open additional channels for communication. So far, in some cases, we have vaccinated people who do not have a registered residence in this region, as well as foreign citizens who live here, ” Micovic explained.
