The anti Covid vaccination campaign continues in Sardinia, but the vials are scarce.
The doses available, especially after reservations have been made for the over 16s, are not sufficient to cover the requests of all Sardinians with the first, obvious inconveniences.
Yesterday in the Quartu hub 500 people, booked for the call of Moderna, returned home waiting for another reservation. And similar problems also occurred in Decimomannu and Senorbì for example.
The commissioner of Ats Massimo Temussi tries to reassure by recalling that “in July all Sardinians will have their first dose”.
And the councilor for health Nieddu also echoes him, who speaks of the need to “speed up the times and solve the problems of those who have to travel 50 kilometers for the recall”.
However, the problem always remains that of a supply below the demand that the Region makes. “The numbers now speak for themselves – explains Nieddu -: 17,840 inoculations on Saturday, 14,500 and 16,020 the day before. We can also push harder but we have a problem for Pfizer and Moderna’s supplies, too few compared to what we can do ”.
CASES DOWN – In the meantime, the expectation for Sardinia’s entry into the European green zone is growing, a further recognition that could serve as a new stimulus for an opening to tourism not only Italian. According to the commissioner of Ats, Massimo Temussi, the communication could arrive already today. However, the official will presumably take place on Thursday when the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control will upload the data sent by the Ministry of Health and then decide to assign the colored areas to regions and states. To date there are nine European territories that fall within the green zone (including Molise, the first and only Italian region), Sardinia should be the ninth also because it fully respects the parameters: in the last 14 days it has registered less than 25 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants with a positivity rate of less than 4%.
