The View of Healthcare Professionals In Pomurje On The Vaccination Against Covid-19
Theoretical background: Coronavirus is a modern disease that has affected people around the world. About a year ago, a vaccine appeared and people started vaccinating it to further protect the population. The research focused on the opinion of health professionals about their view of vaccination and its effectiveness. Method: The research work was carried out according to the descriptive qualitative method of work. Data were collected through a structured interview. The research in the empirical part was carried out on 6 employees of health workers in the health center Murska Sobota. Results: The interviewees included one general practitioner, a graduate physiotherapist, a midwife and three graduate nurses. All interviewees were vaccinated with a vaccine from Pfizer BioNTech. In general, we found that healthcare professionals were of the opinion that the vaccines were effective and with few side effects, especially pain and redness at the injection site. However, they also state that the symptoms are usually milder in the vaccinated than in the unvaccinated. The main decisions for vaccination were to protect themselves from possible infection and to facilitate the course of the disease in the event of infection. Discussion: We have found that the most current topic in the world at the moment is Covid - 19 and vaccination against Covid - 19. Among the interviewed health professionals, we can see that the opinions that vaccinated people have an easier course of the disease and also recover faster and have fewer consequences after infection, and we also found that the interviewees agree with vaccination against Covid - 19, because that the vaccine is sufficiently effective and that we have sufficient information about the vaccine and its side effects.
