Will the suspension of the vaccination obligation against covid-19 relieve the health system in the Hautes-Pyrénées?

After the agreement to end the vaccination obligation given by the High Authority for Health (HAS) on March 30, a decree published on Saturday May 13 suspends the vaccination obligation against covid-19, which opens the way from Monday, May 15 to the reintegration of hospital staff and unvaccinated caregivers. A symbolic decision since many of them have decided to leave the health sector and reorient themselves. Others had already been gradually reinstated during the period of the health crisis. “Since the beginning of the vaccination obligation for health professionals, there have been many reintegrations of vaccinated caregivers once their scheme is complete and compliant”, specified the Haut-Pyrenean delegation of the Regional Health Agency (ARS) in August 2022. To date, “there are around ten people, health professionals or non-vaccinated hospital workers (therefore suspended), concerned” specifies the Haut-Pyrenean delegation of the Regional Health Agency (ARS) . A very low figure to compare with the 2,000 liberal health professionals in the Hautes-Pyrénées and at least twice as many salaried caregivers (without integrating replacements). It is still necessary to distinguish the liberal health professionals who can re-exercise freely, overnight, from the others who depend directly on their employer.

marginal figures

ARS Occitanie reports in the Hautes-Pyrénées “only 7 liberal health professionals banned from practicing, including 4 nurses, 2 doctors and an orthoptist”. “To date, only one liberal doctor has reported to the College of Physicians that he has resumed his activity, as he has an obligation to do. For the other liberal health professionals, this will happen naturally. For example, liberal nurses are authorized to re-exercise without showing up,” explains Laure Escalé for the departmental delegation of ARS Occitanie. As for the Bigorre hospital center (Tarbes-Lourdes), its management reports “only three unvaccinated staff concerned by potential reintegration: two non-care workers, a laboratory technician and an administrative manager, and a surgeon. Agents called to be reinstated will be received by our human resources department, which will offer them an assignment, either in the original department or in a new position in line with their mission and their grade. mass movement, it’s rather marginal”. According to the Haut-Pyrenean delegation of the ARS, “another health professional in another hospital center in the Hautes-Pyrénées, was also awaiting his reinstatement”.
