17 August 2021
The #RealitetiRi project partners shared recommendations in dealing with the pandemic.
The #RealitetiRi project partners, namely the President of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce, Berat Rukiqi, and the Executive Director of the CiviKos Platform, Donika Emini, held a joint press conference to present their recommendations on the latest developments in dealing with the pandemic and the possibility of increasing the vaccination rate in Kosovo.
The following recommendations were gathered from consultations with business representatives and partners from the civil society during the project activities:
🟢 Removal of the bureaucracy in booking appointments for simplified and easier access;
🟢 Enabling vaccination at the nearest center, regardless of the officially registered place of residence;
🟢 Vaccination through mobile teams at businesses premises, as their economic activity is being hindered by limited vaccination hours meanwhile the risk of unvaccinated employees continuing contact with people increases;
🟢 Mobile vaccination teams for more rural and isolated areas, especially those inhabited mainly by communities that have less access to proper information;
🟢 Reorganize the healthcare resources for extending vaccination schedules over the weekend. This is especially important given that many citizens find it impossible to get vaccinated during working days, especially if they work in other cities away from their registered place of residence;
🟢 Vaccination in the main cities’ squares in order to achieve figures that coincide with a mass vaccination;
🟢 Cooperate with other countries to ensure that our vaccination passport will be accepted as evidence by them and prevent any obstacles to free movement.
