Axel Kicillof headed the 149th ordinary session of the Province of Buenos Aires in which he alluded to the VIP vaccination when referring to the controls in the Buenos Aires vaccination plan: "

I am not going to hire Interpol to control each syringe."

"Because of what happened, we have added a button on the website and in the application to report those who lie or who manage to get vaccinated by someone's hand when they are not. We are going to ask those who come with a disease to show a certified,

but it will be difficult to control everyone, I am not going to hire Interpol to be next to each syringe

to see whether or not it is the corresponding certificate, "he said.

In that sense - in a speech that began at 6:16 p.m. and lasted until 8:13 p.m. - he added: "

When the second wave arrives we have to have the largest number of population already vaccinated

."

With a tone that began less belligerent than that of Alberto Fernández, Kicillof on the one hand floated during his speech a vindication of the Buenos Aires management of the pandemic and the coronavirus vaccination and, at the same time - in an election year - he sought a tone conciliator with the mayors of the different political signs.

However, his criticisms, specifically, focused on the economic, social and health inheritance left by his predecessor María Eugenia Vidal, former governor of Cambiemos, who added to the criticism of the opposition by stating that the same people who "accused him of poisoning now demand more speed "to vaccinate.

Without naming him, there was also a criticism of the Buenos Aires head of government Horacio Rodríguez Larreta:

"We are not going to privatize the vaccine.

My obligation is to lead an effective and reliable vaccination plan as quickly as possible. Therefore, although it is an electoral year, Although it gives me the impression that some are on an electoral campaign,

the campaign we are obsessed with is that of vaccination in the province. "

Likewise, he informed that they will seek to

de-dollarize the rates of public services

in the same line as what Alberto Fernández said in his speech this afternoon in the

National Congress.

He summarized: 

"Last year was the year of the pandemic;

this year will be the year of vaccination and reconstruction

of the province of Buenos Aires."

The governor started by taking stock of the pandemic by characterizing that all the social and economic conditions were in place for the covid to

"overwhelm"

the Province.

"

We had a health system that was decimated,

a high concentration of the population with a structural housing deficit and an inherited social and economic crisis, factors constituted an explosive cocktail," said Kicillof, alluding to the management of María Eugenia Vidal, who never named.

He continued: "When the pandemic began, many wondered

when the Province of Buenos Aires and the suburbs

were

going to explode

. But neither the Province nor the suburbs nor the health system collapsed. We were able and we are proud to have carried it forward together."

In this context, the Buenos Aires president considered that

"the province that some call 'unviable

from the comfort of newsrooms and armchairs, is going to fulfill a year with the health system on its feet without having left any Buenos Aires citizen without a bed, without care, without a doctor ".

"

This constitutes an achievement that despite the political dispute we cannot pass up.

Preventing the collapse of the health system undoubtedly meant reducing the capacity to harm the pandemic. We could not do many things, but we saved thousands of lives and after This experience is

going to strengthen a health system that was abandoned,

"he said.


Kicillof had entered the Buenos Aires Legislature at

5:55 p.m.

by the hand of his wife,

Soledad Quereilhac

, and was received by the vice-governor, Verónica Magario, and the president of the Chamber of Deputies,

Federico Otermín

.

In addition to Magario and Otermín, a handful of members of all political blocs and Buenos Aires ministers were present at the venue.

The rest of the guests -intendents, members of the Judiciary, as well as other members of the Cabinet and legislators- participated in the assembly in a virtual way

.

The capacity for the Chamber of Deputies was limited in its capacity to 30 percent

, due to the coronavirus pandemic.


In different sections, the governor vindicated the national management of Alberto Fernández's pandemic: "Today more than ever I also want to thank our president,

who continues to lead the reins of a country attacked by a fierce pandemic

, hit by the global economic crisis. great one that you probably have memory of. "

He added: "We arrived here today very hurt, but we would have arrived with much more damage if Alberto had not been president [...]. How terrible it would have been a government that did not believe in the importance of a present state.

The pandemic met with a president who did not come to say 'for himself who can'.
