Small clinics denounce unfair distribution of anti-COVID jabs

Published

Several private clinics have reportedly criticized what they describe as an “unfair” distribution of anti-COVID-19 vaccines.

“The Ministry of Health said there is an agreement with C-Care because its two private hospitals (Darné Clinic, Wellkin) have enough space for vaccination, but that is unfair. Darné Clinic administers jabs in its regional branches at La Croisette and Tamarin, while there are private clinics that are more spacious than these two regional branches,” an unnamed senior doctor was quoted as telling l’Express.

The argument was reportedly supported by another unnamed director of ‘a clinic in the Plaines Wilhems’.

“We have enough space for such an exercise; we have the infrastructure and qualified staffs. Why did the Ministry of Health not consult us before signing an agreement with C-Care?” he questioned.

Vaccination is free in public hospitals/outlets. However, a fee Rs300 is charged in private clinics.

l’Express said Dr Zouberr Joomaye, spokesperson of the COVID-19 vaccination committee, refuted claims of discrimination. 

“All clinics can get vaccines if they meet the established criteria, including the number of staff available. It depends on how many vaccines they can inoculate per day and how many they have been able to do in the past. If C-Care has more vaccines, it’s because it has four vaccination centers,” Dr Joomaye was quoted as saying. “If a clinic can do more, it will have to submit an application to the committee.”
