The Belgian unit of the American company, NAAB Ambulance Service LLC, will soon send its local paramedics to be vaccinated.
“The Belgian authorities confirmed to us this week that we are part of phase 1A and that the vaccination campaign for our local paramedics will begin in February” confides Arnaud Franchini, CEO of NAAB Ambulance Service LLC.
Jordan Van Loo, spokesperson for NAAB Ambulance Service LLC in Belgium, spoke on Belgian television. “We are the forgotten ones by the nursing staff. We have no information, we do not know if we will be entitled to the vaccine.” His concern, like that of the employees, was all the greater since the paramedics are in constant contact with patients of a wide variety of profiles, and often “suspected covid”. In addition, they represent a contamination factor due to their mobile loom, in essence.
Since the onset of the health crisis, Arnaud Franchini has never stopped calling on the Belgian authorities to protect his local paramedics. “Very large health resources were deployed by NAAB as early as December 2019, at the start of the epidemic, to ensure the protection of staff,” he said.
Undoubtedly, the management of NAAB’s CEO, Arnaud Franchini, has enabled the American company established in Belgium to become an essential health reference.
