The new rules on the recall of vaccines
Regarding the second dose of vaccine, however, the coordinator of the vaccination campaign in Lombardy, Guido Bertolaso, announced that “from June 25 in Lombardy, the appointment for the second dose will be postponed”.

It will have to be done with seven days’ notice . It will be possible to move the date, time and vaccination center. Only one change will be allowed “.
