As far as I am concerned, I can be left for last to be vaccinated but at DAR Bjorn we have 13 of the most vulnerable…

The Dar Bjorn founder shared his appeal on Facebook. In his appeal he said that the vaccination for the elderly in care should proceed faster. Formosa said that residents at the specialized ALS care home should be provided the vaccine at the earliest.

Bjorn Formosa explained that himself can wait, however, the other 13 residents at the home are amongst the most vulnerable in Malta. He continued explaining that most of them already breath with difficulty.

The founder of Dar Bjorn reiterated that the residents should be vaccinated now together with vulnerable people from other homes.

Appeals for more information

The PN Covid Action Team appealed for more transparency on the vaccine roll-out plan.

The team said that till now nobody knows who is responsible for the vaccination programme. The PN specialized team said that no information is available as who is handling the coordination, if its Mater Dei, the Health Department, or the Ministry.

Concerns on unclarities and prioritisation of who will be receiving the vaccine have already been voiced by the Malta Health Students Association earlier this week. The students that perform their duties side by side to the frontliners are not considered such themselves.
