Like last week, caregivers will again mobilize this Monday morning in front of the office of the Federal Minister of Health, Frank Vandenbroucke. The reason? Express their dissatisfaction with the vaccine obligation that threatens them.
During this time, the administration of the booster dose continues in the hospitals. This Tuesday, it will be the Saint-Luc university clinics in Brussels that will begin the new procedure.
Why is this 3rd dose so important? Some explanations with Sébastien Gourdin, optimization project manager at Saint-Luc clinics: “When we see the number of people absent today, when we see the major difficulties that we have in the care units to have the necessary staff to be able to take care of the patients who are numerous at the moment. hospital, it’s important to have everyone on deck and to avoid these contaminations “, urge Sébastien Gourdin.
For him, this 3rd dose is necessary among the nursing staff: “Clearly, this is the objective of this 3rd dose: curb this transmission among vaccinated personnel and be able to have as many people as possible on deck “, he advances.
But this booster dose would also help unclog our health care system, and therefore, at the same time, stabilize the epidemiological situation in Belgium for Christmas and the New Year, explains Sébastien Gourdin: “And incidentally also, to spend serene end-of-year celebrations “, he concludes.
