The equation is simple and intertwines the variables of everyday life. If you want to go to the restaurant indoors with your 12-year-old children, for example, from 6 August you will need the green pass. But it is also through the little things that a greater goal is reached, that of immunity and therefore of security. The boom, then, was predictable and has materialized. Certainly in very large proportions: in the first 24 hours from the introduction of the decree that requires the green pass to access certain activities, in the Bergamo area the bookings for vaccinations of 12-15 year olds practically multiplied by ten. Numbers in hand, those provided by the Lombardy Region, between 1 and 21 July there was an average of 184 subscriptions per day in this band, the lowest age group in the vaccination campaign (and least immunized). Thursday 22 July, the day when the rumors about the green pass bounced in the morning and in the evening the actual announcement of Prime Minister Mario Draghi arrived, bookings bounced back to 806. But it was Friday, precisely in the 24 hours following the ratification of the new decree law, that the surge was vertical: 2,002 bookings in one day for 12-15 year olds from Bergamo, 988% more than the daily average that was observed between 1 and 21 July. In the early hours of yesterday morning, another 313 requests were added, probably up by a few hundred more during the day.
