Health Minister Says it’s Not True Platform Not Functioning

“Maybe the platform is not functioning the way we wanted but it functions well enough to cope with the challenges of vaccination. I read in the papers that the system of vaccination has collapsed. That’s not true! We are increasing the daily number of vaccinations, currently around 23,000 people get vaccinated on a daily basis,” the minister said.

He stressed that he was aware of his own responsibility but noted that the system was decentralised and that county public health institutes organised vaccination in their own areas of responsibility.

“The City of Zagreb and other counties use the platform, maybe not to the extent we would want them to use it, but they do use it. Local platforms do not include what is necessary to organise the system. You can vaccinate people, but then you have to enter the information in the system that incorporates all information for green COVID-19 certificates,” the minister said.

Register and you will be vaccinated

He added that it was not him as minister but professionals who had come up with the idea to design a platform for registration for vaccination.

The platform is now available, he said, adding that there was no duplication or deletion in the process of registration.

“Register and you will be vaccinated,” he said, calling on everyone to register.

He also said that there was no wasting of vaccines, that vaccination points were full and that the vaccination process would be stepped up.

“All resources must be mobilised so that we can inoculate as many people as possible and reach the 55% vaccination rate by summer, which will also enable a safer tourist season,” Beroš said, describing the reform of the health system and its financial stability as the most important challenge and noting that changes could no longer be delayed.

Reporters also asked the minister about the case of Deputy Prime Minister Boris Milošević who was vaccinated against COVID-19 and received both doses yet he got infected.

“That is very rare, all vaccines that are used in Croatia should respond to all variants of the virus that have been registered in the country,” he said.
