“I have just signed a letter to tell the Regions to continue actively looking for the over 60s. To date, about 2.8 million are missing”. General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo said this on the sidelines of a visit to the Spallanzani vaccination center.
Figliuolo then explained: “There are probably about 100 thousand
people who have doubts ”about heterologous vaccination. According to the commissioner, this would be about 10% of the 950 thousand who have taken the first dose of Astrazeneca and are waiting for the second.
On the vaccine doses available, the commissioner stated: “With the doses arriving between now and September we will have over 54 million usable mRna doses and we are definitely closing the campaign. Should there be an advance decided at European level, it will give us further possibilities to speed up. Curevac was an option but it has remained so, the campaign is already calibrated on what we already have available ”.
