The plan of the extraordinary commissioner of the Covid emergency is to “give maximum flexibility” which, as he himself explained, “means being able to choose the best date already during the booking phase with a toll-free number or online and be able to move the recall in the range of 42 days or 4-12 weeks.

Regarding the second doses of the vaccine, Figliuolo said that “from a scientific point of view there are some studies, even advanced ones, which still have to find further confirmation, in order to be able to make the second dose so-called ‘heterologous’: that is, to make a first dose of AstraZeneca and for some particular cases or because maybe at that moment AstraZeneca is not available to do the booster with mRna vaccines such as Moderna, Pfizer or Curevac. 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 ”, concluded Figliuolo.
