Leave cotton swabs after vaccination


The Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued guidelines on the prevention of nucleic acid environmental pollution in Xinguan vaccination sites. According to the guidelines, after the injection, a special person should be responsible for supervising the recipient to discard the cotton swabs pressing the inoculation site in the designated recycling container and not take them away from the site.
The guidelines require new crown vaccination sites to prepare materials before vaccination. In order to reduce the nucleic acid pollution of vaccine at the inoculation point, a disposable treatment sheet should be placed on each inoculation table before inoculation, and a disposable treatment plate should be placed, in which gauze should be placed and medical alcohol should be used for infiltration.
The operation process of Xinguan vaccination should be standardized, and the injection exhaust should be completed right above the treatment plate during vaccination. Attention should be paid to avoid residual liquid in the process of exhaust. If there is residual liquid, it should be dropped into the treatment plate. During the operation, the alcohol gauze should be kept moist, and it should be replaced in time according to the situation and disposed as medical waste.
The management of medical waste at the inoculation site should be strengthened. After the injection, a special person should be responsible for supervising the recipients to discard the cotton swabs pressing the inoculation site in the designated recycling containers and not take them away from the site. All medical wastes should be collected in a centralized way and treated in strict accordance with the regulations on the management of medical wastes; all medical wastes should be taken back to the temporary inoculation points not located in medical institutions for centralized treatment. The outer packaging box and instructions of the vaccine should be kept in the vaccination unit and treated as medical waste.
The vaccine should be handled with care during cold chain transportation and vaccination to prevent breakage or spillage. The vaccination site of Xinguan vaccine should be cleaned. After the daily vaccination, the ground should be cleaned by wet method. The surfaces of vaccination table, door handle, ground and wall that may be polluted should be disinfected according to the requirements, and then cleaned thoroughly with clean water.
