The NBA model for anti-vaccines, is it applicable for the SNS?



The cumulative incidence falls, the total number of vaccinated people increases every day, hospital pressure decreases and, little by little, restrictions are being lifted, recovering that prepandemic normality that many are willing to live. However, there is a topic that is still hot among the population and it is the low, but significant, percentage of the population that has decided not get vaccinated, including the health personnel.

In Spain, vaccination against Covid It is not compulsory, not even for those who work in hospitals, health centers or nursing homes. Meanwhile, in other countries those who do not want to receive the serum are being admonished. France, for example, has decided to impose sanctions on the entire health personnel that has not been vaccinated and could even impose jail sentences if they do not get vaccinated after receiving a first warning.

In the United States, NBA will deduct from their salary to non-vaccinated players the proportion proportional to the matches that they cannot play. The normative requires vaccination in order to access the pavilions, therefore the team members who have not been inoculated could not play the match.

The debate is in the air and there are opinions for all tastes, especially on social networks where there are many doctors that have already been manifested in this sense. Mar Forner, nurse and medical student, Juan carlos miranda, emergency room nurse, and Martin Fernandez, family doctor, analyze the question and give their opinion on whether the law should or should not oblige health personnel to be vaccinated.

Measures that expose vulnerable people

“I do not see it necessary that the vaccination on sanitary in the epidemiological situation and percentage of vaccinated population current “, expresses Martin Fernandez to Medical Writing, and clarifies: “The epidemiological situation and percentage of vaccinated in Spain is very high, higher than the vast majority of countries in the world, one of the largest in Europe, from what I see unnecessary the mandatory nature of vaccination, unlike other countries where I do believe that it should be mandatory by the low social response“.

Fernández believes that measures should be taken “on the obligatory nature of vaccination, especially in toilets that can expose vulnerable people“, but consider that they should not be”punitive measures for not getting vaccinated. “

Health trained in Science: “Should be obliged”

Very contrary opinion is the one expressed by the emergency nurse Juan Carlos Miranda. “A professional, trained in Science, where the scientific evidence has to mark our profession is not acceptable to be contrary to vaccinationSo honestly, and although it may be controversial, I think that to be a healthcare professional, vaccinations should be mandatory. “

Miranda believes that “perhaps it will cease to be considered sick leave in those who are not vaccinated compared to those who are” as a penalty for those health workers who decide not to inoculate themselves with the Covid vaccine. He also considers it appropriate to lower remuneration, as is the case with the NBA in the United States. “Maybe a percentage less remuneration or some form of sanctioning it, “he explains.

For its part, Mar Forner, nurse and medical student, recognizes that “although the vaccine is currently free choice” for public health reasons should be administered to the entire population, including the health sector, provided there are no contraindications. “

“Unfortunately it seems that if there are no economic repercussions, people do not become aware,” says the utility, emphasizing that “any economic repercussion seems effective to them.”
