Third dose vaccine, there is the date
Following the favorable opinion expressed by the Technical Scientific Commission ofAifa and of the Cts, a discussion is underway by the Ministry of Health with the technicians of the regions for the precise definition of the target population. Consequently, the computer systems for the start-up of administrations throughout the national territory will be updated. Therefore, additional doses of m-RNA vaccine (BioNTech / Pfizer and Moderna) will be made available for the start of administrations.
Three million doses
According to what is learned, there are about three million immunocompromised Italians who will be the first to receive the third dose of anticovid vaccine. Among them, patients transplanted, oncological and with autoimmune diseases. Immediately after, the Minister of Health explained in recent days, we will proceed with the other fragile subjects, the guests of the RSA and the over 80-year-olds. In its opinion, the Technical-Scientific Committee stressed that the third dose is “recommended” in transplant recipients, and, more generally, in those categories of subjects characterized by significant alteration of the immune system function due to causes related to the underlying pathology (eg. common variable immunodeficiency) or to pharmacological treatments that cause marked impairment of the immune response “.
