Third dose vaccine, when will it be available for everyone? The Undersecretary for Health spoke on SkyTg24 this morning on the enlargement of the audience Andrea Costa, who made it known that «It is reasonable to think that between the end of the year and the beginning of next year we will proceed with the enlargement of the audience for those who will have to receive the third dose. The timing on which we are thinking is this ».

The third dose also to the bulk of the population that has already received the first two, could therefore arrive between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. “For the choice to give everyone the third dose – continued Costa – we are in a an area in which politics must take note of what will be the scientific indications, on this I believe it is appropriate to clearly divide the competences: politics must take responsibility for declining choices, but it must do so on the basis of what science tells us. Today the indications we have are to proceed with the third dose on the frail and the over-sixties ».
It is “reasonable to think that there will be an extension. The government’s task is to be ready for administration and in this respect we guarantee that we are, both in terms of logistics in the territories and the availability of vaccines. The indications – he said – tell us that it is reasonable to think that we will go towards the third widespread dose and we will do it gradually. It seems to me that even on the third dose there is a positive response from citizens, we must continue relying on their sense of responsibility, which has been amply demonstrated both in compliance with the rules and in the availability of vaccination. They made us reach extraordinary numbers that allow us to continue on the path of returning to normality ».
