Sejak dimulainya kampanye vaksin, tim medis Turki mulai melakukan vaksinasi hingga ke desa pedalaman. Hal itu tentu menjadi tantangan untuk para pekerja medis.

VAN, TURKEY - FEBRUARY 11: Nurse, Bilge Koc and nurse, Gokalp Balli of the Gevas Public Health Center vaccination team, prepare to vaccinate 81 year old Selim Saypak with the Chinese Sinovac Coronavac vaccine during a house call in the village of Ikizler on February 11, 2021 in Van, Turkey.  Since shipments of the Chinese Sinovac Coronavac vaccine arrived in Turkey on December 30, 2020, medical teams across the country have been working house to house to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to elderly and vulnerable citizens. For the members of the Van City, Gevas Province Public Health Centre vaccination teams, who specialise in remote locations, often high in the mountains or villages that have become inaccessible by car, due to heavy snowfall and road closures, house calls pose many unique challenges. The teams are often forced to hand carry the vaccine for kilometres through deep snow and mud to gain access to the village and administer the vaccine. Since the start of the vaccine campaign in Turkey the two specialist mobile teams have vaccinated more than 130 citizens in rural villages, some as old as 106. Turkeys official drug and medical equipment body approved the Chinese Sinovac Coronavac vaccine for emergency use against the novel coronavirus on the 13th of January 2020. According to data from Turkey’s Health Ministry the country has vaccinated more than 3.6 million people. The death toll from the coronavirus in Turkey has reached more than 27,000 and the number of infections has topped 2.5 million since mid-March 2020. Globally more than 107 million people have been infected by the virus.
