So far (as of March 31, 2021), the school staff vaccinated in Sicily, who receive the drug in question as a priority, slightly exceeds 69 thousand units, equal to 49% of the total. Those who after vaccination, explained by the councilor, accuse skin bruises (petechiae), shortness of breath, headache, blurred vision, chest pain and other symptoms listed in the note, must immediately alert the family doctor to watch out for any “signs and symptoms of thromboembolism and thrombocytopenia “.
“A combination of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia – reads the council’s note – in some cases accompanied by bleeding, has been observed very rarely after vaccination” with AstraZeneca. On the island, teachers, school collaborators and secretarial staff awaiting vaccination still amount to about 70 thousand units. And, as has been the case since last February 19, those who want to be vaccinated will receive AstraZeneca.
