“If health workers and visitors are not vaccinated, the elderly in RSA are at risk of contagion again”

Time.news – The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Ecdc) raises the alarm for the risk of new Covid outbreaks in elderly centers due to the spread of Delta variant and calls for more vaccinations. “Although the effectiveness of EU-licensed Covid-19 vaccines is high, no vaccine is 100% effective.

Sars-Cov-2 infections are expected among fully vaccinated people, particularly in the elderly or in people with previous conditions. Vaccines prevent serious diseases to a large extent, however, we can still see hospitalizations and even deaths in these populations, ”the ECDC writes in its latest report.

“Among the specific measures to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on individuals residing in RSA there are full vaccination coverage for residents and all people in contact with residents must be secured quickly. This includes, in addition to residents, health personnel and other personnel working in the RSA, as well as visitors “, insists the ECDC.
