In public hospitals by COVID-19, the proportion of people who have not been vaccinated is 71 percent.

The vaccine against Omigran is less effective against the delta variant. Therefore the booster is important to increase vaccine protection.
Who can raise? “We will contact you”
“We’ll contact them,” Rigley says, with the intent of who can already be elevated. People will be notified. The province of Zurich welcomes the reduction of the deadline to four months. Tomorrow, Wednesday, the zone will add additional dates for those with a five-month notice period. From January 1, anyone who was vaccinated four months ago can sign up for the booster vaccine. Reducing the time would be a bigger challenge for logistics, but additional vaccine benefits would be created.
One-third of those who have been fully vaccinated have already been raised
Vaccination is important to maintain health care in Zurich. “About 1.1 million people in Zurich have already been vaccinated.” That means about 80 percent of people were able to get vaccinated. One-third of them have already been raised. This is also thanks to the vaccine offer. “There are more than 600 vaccine options in the Zurich region,” Rigley continues.
Rigley: “But I want to call you diligently”
“It’s been almost two years since the corona epidemic – it’s not over yet,” says Natalie Rigley. This is a challenge for people. For those who have been vaccinated in advance. “But I want to invite you to wait.”

Mathys: “We need more IPS seats again”
The number of hospital admissions has been declining since December 6, but the BAG insists that the pressure on hospitals remains high, a journalist says. How does it go together?
“The decline in the number of cases is not huge. Considering the amount of time patients spend in wards, an increase in the number of people in hospitals is expected.
Are the new measures not having enough effect?
A journalist asks if the current new measures are adequate. “It remains to be seen whether the measures will reduce the pressure on hospitals. More action may be needed, ”said Mathis of BAG.
This step-by-step approach is only sensible – across Europe. You need to watch carefully and consistently how Omigron behaves.
Have health workers already been promoted?
Is there a risk that health workers may not be available as they too may be affected by Omigran disease and have not yet been exacerbated?
Mathis says he does not know any specific figures. “However, health workers are at risk of being affected by Omigran, which could lead to staff shortages in the wards.” Howry says you can also work with special safety equipment in isolation and as a final ration.
Why not recommend FFP2 Mask yet?
Why not recommend FFP2 mask, such question, when Omikron is very contagious. BAG’s Patrick Mathis responds: “No general recommendation yet. Evaluations of foreign data show that the use of FFP2 masks did not have a significant impact on the course of the epidemic.
However, there are definitely situations where wearing an FFP2 mask makes sense. However, it is important to use it correctly.
When will the number of cases increase again?
“This year, the number of cases due to Omikron is expected to increase rapidly again. Long-term forecasts beyond January are not reliable, given the current level of knowledge about Omigran, ”responds BAG expert Patrick Mathis.
