AstraZeneca, here is yet another stumbling block. First under the age of 55, then up to 65 then, and on the contrary, after the age of 60. And now for the second dose under the age of 60 the government has decided to use a different vaccine, such as MRna. In a general climate of relative “disorientation”, even the Region and the ASST are awaiting clarification.
Professor Fabrizio Pregliasco, virologist: Has AstraZeneca made more trouble than anything else at the vaccination campaign or is it the fault of the health authorities who have changed their opinion many times?
“Surely the death of the Ligurian girl is at the basis of this new decision. This technical-political choice, however, in fact minimizes the already minimal risks. It is essential to ensure safety, effectiveness and reliability. And it is desirable that this new intervention by the authorities be interpreted by citizens as an element of attention, protection and transparency. The adverse events highlighted have behind them billions of doses administered with excellent results. It is estimated that with the vaccination campaign 10 thousand people have been saved from Covid and that the reduction in hospital admissions has collapsed by 80%. We cannot have doubts about this. It is clear, the vaccine is not a candy. It can give normal reactions such as fever, joint pain, but the serious facts with a proven correlation to the world are limited to one case of death with Pfizer and three with AstraZeneca ».
