Beyond a journalistic title,

the Vacunagate

, or a location, the VIP vaccination for those close to the Government that operated in the Posadas Hospital and in the Ministry of Health of the Nation itself, the scandal of the irregular allocation of vaccines against the coronavirus it leaves one generation in particular exposed:

immunized young militants.

They are the ones who received a dose, having skipped two priority groups that were long before in the fight to avoid deaths from covid-19,

health personnel and older adults.

According to the experts interviewed by


, the immunity they acquired -beyond the title and the place of the country where it occurred- caused a permanent effect: the loss of credibility in the vaccination plan.

But also, they say,

a loss of humanism in the fight against the pandemic.

"I think there was a 'confusion in Argentina, where it was thought that the vaccine was a public good, that is, a good that we all paid for. And the covid vaccine, in reality, is a humanitarian good. person who is at risk, for example, who is older than 60 years or younger but with comorbidities, at 30 days the probability of death is reduced to almost 0. Thus, healthy young people who were vaccinated earlier than all those who have factors of irrigation or are older than 60, they really did not understand that among the more than

50 thousand deaths in Argentina, 82% are older than 60 "

, says to


Roberto Debbag Roberto Debbag, vice president of the Latin American Society of Pediatric Infectology (SLIPE) .

Debbag targets the vaccinated, not the vaccinated.

"Because the vaccine is voluntary," he says.

And he believes that the immediate blame lies there.

But there are facilitators of those vaccines.

That is where, he says, beyond immunized culprits, that "the vaccination plan lost total credibility."

The province of Buenos Aires vaccinated dozens of university students and militants under the age of 30.

Many from La Cámpora and other K groups,

who work in the telemedicine call centers

that the Axel Kicillof government set up in conjunction with 29 national universities.

They don't deal with infected patients.

But the official justification is that they are taken as "health personnel".

They confirmed that about 160 young people were inoculated.

But it was not only in Buenos Aires territory.

Another resounding case in the week was that of the young mayor of General Alvear, La Pampa, who received the vaccine and tried to justify it: "There was a dose left over and they called me



Juan Cruz Barton, then, is a 43-year-old "vaccine cartonero".

He is a risk patient, due to heart disease, but his group was not qualified for his dose.

For this case, they fired the director of the local hospital where the first dose of Sputnik V was applied. He, as a civil servant, had no greater condemnation than

that his "advantage" was known.

Juan Cruz Barton, try General Alvear, La Pampa.

The enumeration of these arms without wrinkles that were already immunized does not stop.

Young militants, political leaders and national officials received the Sputnik V vaccine when the Strategic Plan for Vaccination against COVID-19 stipulates that in the first stages, health personnel, adults over 70 years old, must be vaccinated, then 60 to 69 years and strategic personnel (Security Forces, Armed Forces, teachers, etc.). 

As denounced by councilors of Juntos por el Cambio, militants from the Frente de Todos de La Plata applied doses against covid-19 before the priority groups established by the national vaccination plan.

For example?

Members of the official councilor Guillermo “Nano” Cara, who is one of those responsible for the community registration campaign and basic units.

Ignacio Maglio is a lawyer, an eminence in the change of Bioethics in the country and a member of the Ethics and Human Rights Committee Covid19 of the Ministry of Health of the Nation. 

Who are these immunized youth? 

One is Magui de Rose (as featured on her Instagram), the Frente de Todos activist who posted on her social media the moment she received the dose of Sputnik V at the Noel Sbarra Children's Hospital, located at Calle 8, corner 67.

Magui de Rose, theater teacher and activist.

She was immunized.

When asked in the comments how she got the vaccine, the young woman told her followers that she was immunized because she was giving drama classes at the health center.

"Because (being) health personnel it was my responsibility," he answered the concern.

The other side of this immunized generation is that of a young man in Olavarría.

But it also happened in


, where young people who do not work in the health system were vaccinated.  

Tomás Garibotti is the executive coordinator of PAMI who was vaccinated in that city. 

In recent days he defended himself:

"We are in contact with affiliates that is why one is vaccinated and is considered by the Ministry of Health as essential personnel," he said on his social networks. And he added: "We signed up accordingly and were called to get vaccinated on January 14. The controversy arises basically due to two variables: one, the image that society could see in the mainstream media, and the other, that in the networks They said that I am 18 years old, which would not be a limitation to work in health and is considered essential, but it is a tremendous falsehood because I am 36 years old "
