Meanwhile, the administration of an additional dose of the anti-Covid vaccine continues for subjects with the diseases indicated by the Ministry of Health, namely transplanted and immunocompromised. The areas of pathology (which can also be checked with your doctor / pediatrician or specialist) that require the administration of the additional dose are listed on the website www.regione.lombardia.it. These people can book independently by accessing the platform www.prenotazionevaccinicovid.regione.lombardia.it and clicking on the button «Third dose – Transplanted and immunocompromised citizens».
According to ministerial indications, the third dose of vaccine is foreseen in two cases:
– as an additional dose, to ensure an adequate level of immune response in people who, due to disease or therapy, may have a lower immune response to the first two doses of the vaccine. The administration of the additional dose in favor of this category of subjects started on 20 September.
– as a booster dose or “booster” with the aim of maintaining an adequate level of immune response over time. This is intended for people at greater risk of developing severe illness from frail conditions, such as the elderly. Recalls starting from 4 October for citizens over the age of 80.
