The vaccination campaign it does not widen in the most at-risk bands nor does it trigger between school staff, which risks finding itself with the obligation to green pass at the reopening of schools. The latest weekly report from the government photographs a situation of slowness in the administration of first doses among over 50 and a substantial stall between teachers and Ata staff.
As in recent weeks, the rhythms – mostly due to an increasingly less convinced adhesion in some segments of the population – are essentially snail. And without a click, expected with the introduction of the green certificate, it would come to 2022 before covering all those over 50 who so far have not been able (or wanted to) get vaccinated, that is 4,641,302 people. The data is clear, starting with the school staff: according to the tables of the commissioner structure led by general Francesco Figliuolo remain to be vaccinated 220,605 people, 15.06%. On July 23, they were 222.132.
In short, in the last 7 days, they have barely been inoculated 1,500 first doses. In 11 Regions there are at least 10% of professors and unvaccinated ATA staff, with the Sicily always leader with his own 60.001 without first dose, equal to 42,86% of the ‘school population’. It should be noted that some Regions are in delay with the update of the total number of people to be vaccinated in this category, so the data of the last few weeks are rather ‘dancers’ on the totals (on 2 July there were fewer people still to be vaccinated than last week).
The campaign among the over 60s is also getting tired, with the usual slow progress in age range 60-69 years, the most worrying from the point of view of the unvaccinated in absolute terms. Among over 80 still missing 309,435 people (there were 319,369 on 23 July) or 6.79% of the population. The region with the lowest percentage of immunized is always Sicily, where one over 80 out of five is discovered. In the category of 70-79enni, on the other hand, they have not yet received even a dose of the vaccine 685.892, about 27 thousand less than last Friday when there were 713,124.
Numbers much smaller than those of sixty-year-olds: they still remain uncovered 1.271.763 of people between 60 and 69 years, equal to 16.84% of the population in that age group. A week ago they were 1.327.306. In other words, they received a dose of the vaccine between 23 and 30 July in 55.543. On July 2, four weeks ago, it was 1,458,624. The calculation is soon done: in a month they were reached 186.861 people. With these rhythms, it would take to inject a first dose to all the remaining ‘discovered’ 60-year-olds over 6 months.
A slightly better pace, but which remains insufficient, is recorded among the 50-year-olds. In the last week it has been reached 0,99% of the total population in this age group which counts over 9.6 million. The first administrations from Friday 23 to today were 95.480. It is so come down from 2.469.692 of unvaccinated (25.59%) ai 2.374.212, equal to 24,60%. Without an acceleration, even in this range, there would be 6 months left before being able to administer a dose of the vaccine to everyone.
