Bookings for anti-Covid vaccinations for those between 16 and 39 years old. The extension of the serum administration to the new target (which includes over 1.3 million people) was authorized as part of the national immunization campaign. Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be used and, on a voluntary basis, also Vaxzevria and Janssen (single-dose).

It is possible to make an appointment at the vaccination centers both from the Poste Italiane platform ( and from that of the Palermo Mediterranean Fair ( for who wants to get immunized at the provincial hub.

This is not an open day: given the size of the target, booking is essential to access the vaccination. Citizens are offered Pfizer serum or Moderna as an alternative, but they can also choose to get vaccinated with AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson.
For those who go to get vaccinated at the Palermo hub, at the Fiera, the gates of via Sadat open from 8 to close at 23:30; from 1:30 am, those booked for the night shift can access from the entrance to Piazza Cascino. To ensure an orderly flow, the two exhibition halls, 20 and 20A, operate simultaneously.

«The vaccination campaign assumes even larger proportions and becomes mass – says the Covid Commissioner of the Metropolitan City of Palermo, Renato Costa – we have been waiting for this moment, because we are convinced that it will coincide with a strong acceleration of immunizations. There is a desire to get vaccinated, especially among the youngest, as we have seen in recent days with the breath of enthusiasm and energy of the graduates. We are here 24 hours a day, waiting for anyone who wants to contribute to this great collective effort to get out of the pandemic together “.

“On the island, then – highlights the president of the Region Nello Musumeci – anyone can get vaccinated. It is an opportunity not to be missed to reach mass immunization as soon as possible: only in this way will we be able to face the next months with more serenity. Getting safe, with the vaccine, is the only possible way to get out of the pandemic tunnel quickly and definitively ».

No news, however, with regard to the 12-16 range that instead, in other regions such as Calabria, can be booked.

On the basis of the provisions of Commissioner Figliuolo, also in Calabria we are preparing to expand the age groups. From today at 4 pm, therefore, all people aged 12 and over will be able to access the booking, including those in their twenties and over 30s who were waiting to be inserted. From 12 to 16 years, the Pfizer vaccine will be administered, as approved by EMA, the Italian drug agency. In addition, bookings for all other categories will continue, from 40 years upwards, with a preferential channel for frail patients and caregivers, people with pathologies and the over 60, 70 and 80.
