In Lazio Nicola Zingaretti explains: “I never had any doubts, I was sure that the mass of young people who wanted to vaccinate would arrive, because psychologically they are the ones who paid the most to stay at home and they will be the ones who will pay more the debts that we are doing”. In concrete terms: “We are following the lines of the government but we have re-proposed the age groups due to an organizational and technical problem, because otherwise there would be, on the systems, flows of millions of bookings. So, every 48 hours, we widen the range, let’s do some order “.
