The Lazio Region continues the vaccination campaign to fight the Coronavirus. According to the data, 8.3 million administrations have been exceeded, more than 83% of the population over 12 and 89% of the population over 18 have closed the vaccination process. The goal, however, is to grow, as the regional health councilor Alessio D’Amato underlined, by participating in the initiative organized in Testaccio in collaboration with the As Roma and the Asl Roma 1 to promote the vaccination campaign.
The event was attended by the president of the Lazio Region, Nicola Zingaretti, the director of ASL Roma 1, Angelo Tanese, and the director of the Roma Department, Francesco Pastorella. “We are at the last mile for vaccination coverage. Today we reach 90% of the adult population vaccinated in double dose in Lazio. We are really trying to walk the last stretch of road to convince those who are still uncertain, and initiatives like these serve to raise awareness of the importance of the vaccination campaign, “D’Amato said.
“We have also started the third dose – added the Councilor – and it is going well, both for frail people and those over 80. We want to reach 90% of the population over 12 with a double dose of vaccination within the month. I want to thank the As Roma because it is not the first time that he is helping us in this vaccination campaign, both as regards the direct testimonies of the players and as regards the provision of symbolic places – such as this one in Testaccio – and for us everything this is very important”.
To promote the vaccination campaign, the Lazio Region and AS Roma have inaugurated a camper that will remain operational and available to all citizens who want to get vaccinated against Covid-19. All unvaccinated citizens over the age of 12 with a health card (accompanied minors) can show up on the spot without a reservation where the Moderna vaccine will be administered by the health teams of the ASL Roma 1.
The camper will remain open from 10 to 18.30. Those who undergo the vaccination will receive a promo code which will entitle them to a discount that can be used for the purchase of a ticket for the As Roma home matches. In addition, an As Roma branded bee and the Romolo mascot will distribute gadgets produced for the initiative.
