More tolerance on the date of the recall of the anti-covid vaccines to avoid that the second dose is administered during the holiday period. This is, in short, the request made in a letter to the regions by General Figliolo, commissioner for the covid emergency.
“I have just signed a letter for all the Regions and Autonomous Provinces to say to find solutions of maximum flexibility for bookings and I am thinking in particular of the younger classes, those who will now begin to travel around Italy”, said the military.
“Giving maximum flexibility – added the white pen of the Alpini – means being able to choose the best date already during the booking phase with a toll-free number or online and being able to move the recall within the range of 42 days or 4-12 weeks – he added -. Obviously in the technical times of readjustment of computer systems “.
More tolerance but also a mix of vaccines. “From the scientific point of view, there are some studies, even advanced ones, that have yet to find further confirmation, in order to be able to do the second dose so-called ‘heterologous’: that is, do a first dose of AstraZeneca and for some particular cases or because maybe at that moment AstraZeneca is not available to booster with mRna vaccines such as Moderna, Pfizer or Curevac – added Figliuolo – And this from the immunological point of view seems to give an excellent answer but certainly I do not allow myself to enter the field of scientists “, added Figliuolo.
