04.01.2022 14:19 | Press Release
A special mobile team for vaccinating immobile Praguers at home continues in the capital, involving the Association of General Practitioners, the Czech Red Cross (ČČK), the University Hospital in Motol and the Municipal Polyclinic in Prague.
Thanks to this, it is possible to protect even those for whom a trip to a vaccination center or a general practitioner’s office would be difficult to imagine. Other patients can continue to register, who will then visit the doctor directly at their home.
“I very much appreciate the commitment of all participating organizations, and especially any general practitioner who is willing to pay attention to people for whom visiting the surgery and vaccination center is an insurmountable problem. Thanks also go to the vaccination coordinator Petra Žákovská from the Health Department of the Prague City Hall and Pavel Chlum from the Czech Red Cross, “says Milena Johnová, Councilor of the City of Prague. m of Prague for healthcare.
Currently, 22 general practitioners are involved in the project, who vaccinate either during separate mobile trips with CRC drivers, or during their own visiting service.

“Vaccinations, as well as outpatient care, are provided by GPs for practical visits to patients at home; unfortunately, some doctors are far away or care is not in place at all. During the covid-19 pandemic, many patients with medical conditions also reached such an extent that now the general practitioner does not have to go to the doctor’s office, they have moved to their family, for example, and it is difficult to find a new doctor in their place of residence. Thanks to the help of those willing to vaccinate even the unregistered, the drivers of the Czech Red Cross and the Prague City Council, we were able to provide vaccinations at home and for them. Every time we go out, we meet inspiring people and carers who have great admiration, ”says general practitioner Ludmila Bezdíčková.

A total of 21 trips of the mobile vaccination team were carried out with the help of the CRC, and more than 520 doses of vaccine have been administered since the beginning of the project. Further trips continue in January 2022 and due to the workload of general practitioners and the widest possible availability, it is possible to get vaccinated on weekends.
“In the case of area vaccination, the most difficult thing is to deliver the vaccination dose on its last kilometer. This is especially true for people for whom vaccination is highly excluded. We are therefore glad that we can be part of the project of the capital city of Prague, which thinks of these people and offers them the same opportunity to protect themselves, “adds Richard Smejkal from the Czech Red Cross.
Vaccination is a key tool for protection against the severe course of covid-19, and each dose reduces the risk, especially for the most vulnerable groups. The positive effect of vaccination was evident in the autumn waves, especially in homes for the elderly, where vaccinations are high around 95% of people. Overall, however, approximately 14% of the population over the age of 80 is still not vaccinated in Prague.
