Dalmatinski Portal reports that Dr. Ante Punda, President of the Expert Council of KBC Split, presented how many hospital employees were vaccinated against COVID-19. 

“We had our regular session today, and I can state with satisfaction that all members have been vaccinated, apart from the ones who recently recovered from Covid. They will be vaccinated in the coming period. I thank the ministry and the media for the promotion. KBC is aware of the responsibility; to think of others, we have to think of ourselves.

Thanks to our epidemiological service that conducts vaccination, the response of employees is high. You have seen that epidemiological measures have yielded results. If we are responsible, we will reach the goal of having fewer cases. In three weeks, we vaccinated 1,082 employees, 435 doctors, and 318 nurses; the rest is support staff, our technicians, and laboratory technicians. Now comes the second phase of vaccination. That’s about 28.5 percent. All KBC employees are invited. I think that’s a satisfactory figure for the first three weeks. We made the most of the vaccine. That is a respectable figure. We expect that the number of vaccinated will increase as more vaccine doses arrive,” said Dr. Punda.

The director of KBC Split, Julija Meštrović, is delighted with the number of vaccinated employees.

“You know how it was said that interest in vaccination at this hospital was minimal. All the vaccine was used. First, those who work in the Covid center were vaccinated. It can’t get any better than this. It was done quickly. The response is the best possible. Everyone we could vaccinate was vaccinated. Motivation is very high. The current situation shows this. I don’t know if some don’t want to get vaccinated. What has been achieved is a truly remarkable result. The situation in Croatia is excellent; we must continue to adhere to ongoing measures. The number of hospitalized is decreasing, and because of that, it is becoming easier to work. We have the opportunity to dedicate ourselves to other patients, which is very good,” said Dr. Meštrović.
