Midwives without an invitation for the Covid-19 vaccination

It has come to our attention that some liberal midwives have not yet received an invitation to the Covid-19 vaccination. DP MP Carole Hartmann has asked the Minister of Health whether this problem is known and whether other health professionals are affected.

« La première phase de la campagne de vaccination contre la Covid-19 visait tous les professionnels de santé, qu’ils exercent en libéral ou en milieu hospitalier, les résidents des maisons de retraite et de soins et les personnes en situation de handicap vivant en structure.

Or, il a été porté à ma connaissance que plusieurs sages-femmes libérales n’ont à ce jour pas encore reçu une invitation pour se faire vacciner contre la Covid-19, bien que la deuxième phase de la campagne de vaccination ait déjà commencé.

À ce sujet, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

– Madame la Ministre, est-elle au courant de la situation mentionnée ci-dessus ? Dans l’affirmative, pourquoi certaines sages-femmes libérales n’ont pas reçu d’invitation ? Le problème a-t-il pu être résolu ?

– Madame la Ministre, dispose-t-elle d’informations quant à d’autres professionnels de santé qui n’auraient pas reçu une invitation pour la vaccination contre la Covid-19 ? Dans l’affirmative, lesquels ? Est-ce qu’à ce jour, tous les professionnels de santé ont reçu une invitation ? »

DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.

Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
