Residents in other care homes are being vaccinated.
ALS activist, Bjorn Formosa is asking that residents at Dar Bjorn are considered for vaccination as soon as possible. This comes as certain care homes are vaccinating their residents.
“As far as I’m concerned, I can be left for last to be vaccinated but at DAR Bjorn we have 13 of the most vulnerable persons living in Malta, many of them suffering from respiratory insufficiency,” he shared on social media this morning.
“I don’t want to dictate anything but I am just saying that certain cases like the residents of DAR Bjorn who are at most risk should be considered for vaccination together with residents in other care homes being vaccinated now.”
According to reports, by the end of March, all those living in elderly homes will have received their first dose of the vaccine, however private care homes are concerned about the slow roll-out of the vaccine. Health Minister Chris Fearne has previously explained that the roll-out depended on the number of vaccines arriving in Malta.
Vaccines are being imported in batches but in total, Malta has 670,000 doses on order of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and 100,000 of the Moderna jab.
