The vaccination will take place with two doses of the Pfizer vaccine, in a specific formulation and a third of the dosage, three weeks apart, and it will also be possible in Rome and Lazio as stated by the Regional Health Councilor, Alessio D’Amato: “In Lazio we are ready to leave after AIFA’s ok, bookings will start from 13 December for the pediatric vaccination campaign”.

The initiative will be called ‘And now we can play freely’. Vaccinations can be booked on the regional portal in a special section represented by the logo designed by two children, Chiara and Valerio, of the Bambino Gesù Pediatric Hospital in Rome. To book in one of the 78 dedicated hubs, parents just need to enter their health card details.

“The campaign will be accompanied by intense communication activities. – explained D’Amato – The 13 FAQs prepared by the Bambino Gesù pediatric hospital in collaboration with the scientific societies of pediatrics will be made available on the social channels of ‘SaluteLazio’.

Aifa, for children between 5 and 11 years, suggests the adoption of vaccination courses, when possible, “appropriate to age”. Aifa’s opinion comes after the approval, last November 25, of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which recommended the extension of the indication for Pfizer-BioNtech’s Covid vaccine to include use for children aged between 5 and 11 years. The available data “demonstrate a high level of efficacy and there are currently no warning signs in terms of safety”.
