Draghi’s effect on vaccine undecided. The premier’s Thursday words (“The appeal not to be vaccinated is an invitation to die”) immediately triggered a booking boom in all regions, to the point of creating alarm in regional governors on the actual availability of doses to meet the demands. Immediately after Draghi’s press conference, the servers of the various regions were stormed, but the Ministry of Health and those of the extraordinary commissioner reassure: in the quarter (July August and September) 45.5 million doses already available Pfizer and Moderna, which are the most widely used. In July, 14.5 million doses of the messenger RNA type were delivered which will allow – according to General Figliuolo’s estimates – to vaccinate 80% of the population by 30 September next. Including those over sixty for whom the “active call – announced the commissioner – from the Regions” will be triggered; we are talking about about 2 and a half million people.
Coronavirus today: Covid data of 24 July. Bulletin Italy and regional infections
In short, the vaccinated campaign is experiencing a significant leap (+ 200% in a few hours), so much so that even the two political leaders who missed the call in the vaccine count capitulated. Matteo Salvini appeared in a photo clearly showing the mobile phone with the QR-code on display, signifying the vaccination (at least two days ago), while Giorgia Meloni announced yesterday that she will be vaccinated: “I’m not a no vax “, he was keen to reiterate.
In short, all running towards the vaccine, in one boom in requests which in Lombardy saw 49,000 citizens book at the same time, compared to 28,369 on Wednesday and 17,412 on Thursday 15 July. “To meet these new requests – explained the commissioner Letizia Moratti – an additional 100,000 new places will be available for first doses, from today until the end of August”. The same music also in Piedmont (“practically every hour we have double the requests compared to the average of these months”, announced the president of the Region, Alberto Cirio) and in Veneto, where the governor Luca Zaia spoke of a real “assault to diligence “; from 7 thousand a day, yesterday the requests for doses touched over 20 thousand subjects today.
In Tuscany, more than 4,000 over-60s, previously hesitant, booked the first dose on the online portal and numerous people turned to neighborhood pharmacies. Another 10,000 instead took advantage of the opportunity to bring forward the recall with AstraZeneca.
In Emilia-Romagna in the last four days there has been a real boom, with over 77 thousand bookings, as well as in Abruzzo where yesterday bookings touched 1,700 units, or 800 more than the previous day. On the other hand, vaccination continues along the lines already established in Puglia, with greater requests “to bring forward the date of administrations by young people”, while in Sicily an increase in administrations has been noted, as explained by the Covid emergency commissioner in Palermo, Renato Costa. “I can confirm that we are recording a significant increase – Costa reiterated -. In fact, we inoculate about 3500 doses a day and until a few days ago the first doses represented about 5% of the total, while now we are almost 30% “.
A result that Costa, however, charges one increased awareness in the population on the limits to which those who will not be vaccinated will be subject from 6 August ‘: “Many are now beginning to understand that without the Green pass many activities will be closed”. Data, therefore, very different from Sardinia, where instead there is no particular effect on bookings after the events related to the Green pass, even if the vaccination points are working at full capacity. In the rest of the regions, a significant increase in membership is recorded, with different percentages, in all territories.
