At the press conference, the director of Prevention of the Ministry of Health Gianni Rezza also spoke of the third dose: «There is indecision, there is not yet such strong evidence to be able to say we will do the third dose at all. Some countries like Israel have bet on the third dose, England is planning an autumn campaign, some countries have decided to vaccinate immunosuppressed people with a booster. For other frail people, the elderly and health workers, no decision has been reached. However, I believe that the most fragile and elderly people will carry out a recall “. And he adds: «It is not known whether it will be necessary in the case of a third dose to carry out this booster with vaccines adapted to the variants currently in circulation. The question is whether vaccination will suffice with existing vaccines, or will we be forced to a suitable vaccine? We keep both options open; probably if you vaccinated today you would use the vaccines available. It will be necessary to evaluate in a few months, for now it is not possible to give an answer »added Rezza.
