One in two Pugliese of vaccinable age received the first dose. Today we have reached this beautiful goal at the regional level, reaching above the Italian average. The groups most exposed to risk, over 80 and between 60 and 70 years, were reached with much higher percentages than the national average data. This means that we vaccinate a lot and well, and the credit can only go to the entire regional health and civil protection system that even today, on Sunday, as every day, is at work to secure the Apulians with the vaccine. Let’s continue like this ». This was declared by the president of the Puglia Region Michele Emiliano.
