La Jornada – Director of the Toluca Medical Center is dismissed from his position due to influentialism


#Toluca. #José #Rogel #Romero, director of the #Adolfo López #Mateos #Medical #Center, located in #Toluca, was temporarily separated from the position after it was found that he registered his wife and two daughters so that they could receive the #Covid-19 vaccine last #Thursday in the 22 #Rayón #Military #Zone, informed the #Mexican #Ministry of #Health.

The fact was confirmed by #President #Andrés #Manuel López #Obrador who said that influentialism was incurred so that these people could access the biological, until now intended for medical personnel who care for #Covid patients.

The state #Ministry of #Health did not specify the type of punishment that will be applied to the doctor, but that he will leave the post while the investigations into what happened are carried out. The #Internal #Control #Body of the #State #Health #Secretariat initiated the corresponding file and the events were reported to the #State #Comptroller’s #Office.

#On #December 24, the federal government sent a package of 975 doses of the #Covid vaccine to the 22 #Rayón #Military #Zone, just 12 kilometers from #Toluca. These vaccines would only be applied to front-line personnel who care for #Covid patients in #Mexican hospitals.

A day before, a form was sent to the hospital directors for them to determine who would be the beneficiaries of receiving the immunization. #Rogel #Romero was put on the list, as his hospital is one of the most active in the care of #Covid, it was even reported that this doctor had already been infected twice.

The agency reported that on #December 24 there was a “lack of control” in the military zone, since several of the candidates to receive the vaccine did not arrive at the agreed time, so it was decided to vaccinate the medical personnel who were in the place. even if they were not on the list.

#It was explained that a company hired by the IMSS made a manual record of the people who received the vaccine and it was found that #Dr. #Romero was able to bring his wife and two daughters to receive the biological.

#In the afternoon, when #Romero’s favoritism was confirmed, staff from the #Adolfo López #Mateos #Medical #Center held a protest demanding the dismissal of the director because several of the doctors, residents and nurses who treat #Covid patients could not access the first batch of the vaccine.
