Relaxation before vaccination card is due to lack of personnel, according to merchants

The president of the Dominican Federation of Merchants (FDC), Iván García, regretted that many businesses are finding it difficult to request the vaccination card when your customers go into business because they don’t have people who can do this job.

Not all business entrepreneurs in the Dominican Republic can hire a security staff just to check the card of vaccination with the card. Imagine how this can be accomplished in the grocery stores of the country when normally the husband is always alone or the wife alone behind a counter ”, he lamented.

The representative of the merchants described as “impossible” the fact that these businesses can hire employees to demand the vaccination card, especially since many shops in the villages only enter four or five people a day, but assured that the trade is doing its best.

García said that the FDC has already made a call to all organized merchants to comply with the resolution of the Ministry of Public Health to ask their clients for the vaccination card.

Public Health inspectors should also go where there is the greatest flow of people to check when customers enter. with your vaccination card and if the identity is confirmed with your identity card. That would be of great help for commerce because it would facilitate compliance with the measure, ”said García.

He added that this is a difficult decision, but everyone must contribute so that there is not another coronavirus outbreak in the country.
