Sisak Residents Wait in Rain for Vaccine, Told to Leave After 2 Hours

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, a rather embarrassing situation occurred regarding vaccines for some Sisak residents recently when coronavirus vaccines ran out at one of the vaccination points on Saturday. This means that a good part of the people who came home for their second dose went home unvaccinated, as was told by an angry Sisak resident. The County Public Health Institute explained what happened.

Some people who came to get vaccinated at the mass vaccination point near in Sisak received a cold shower instead of their coronavirus vaccination. After more than two hours of waiting in the rain and cold, they were told the vaccine was gone.

“I was waiting for two hours only to finally come to the door and they tell me – there are no more vaccines. I didn’t want to leave until they brought out a vaccine for me,” a bitter young man from Sisak, who was supposed to receive his second dose on Saturday, told He arrived at the time he was given to come and be vaccinated, but it made no difference as he went home with still just the first dose having been injected.

“I told the lady who was vaccinating people there that they had written to me telling me to come that day. I had been waiting in the rain, wind and cold only to find out that there would be no vaccine. If I got my first dose on November the 13th, how can it be that ”my” second dose wasn’t waiting for me on the date they wrote down themselves? She told me it’s not her fault, alright, but am I to blame either?” asked this irritated Sisak local rhetorically.

Vaccination was eventually postponed

The epilogue of the story, says the young man, is that the vaccine for them will arrive – only next weekend.

“About ten of us are still standing here, I said to the epidemiologist – come on, here we are, just ten of us, write down our names, surnames and phone numbers and let us know when the vaccine comes for us. Tell these people to come at 08:00, 08:15 (it starts at nine otherwise) and we’ll come. She said she can’t do that. I said you see you can help us, but you don’t want to. One of the people said the vaccine is coming on Wednesday, the other said they don’t know if there will be a vaccine until Saturday,” he concluded.
