The goal, however, now seems to be one step away. It can be accelerated. The counter of the Ministry of Health marks 10,324,127 administrations with over 3.2 million people who have completed the vaccination cycle. Among the most virtuous regions and autonomous provinces are the Public Administration of Bolzano with 92.3% of the doses used, Veneto at 91.6% and Molise at 89.7%. On average, those over 80 vaccinated with at least one dose are 57.4% of the total.

|Friuli Venezia Giulia||232.981||274.055||85|
The target is now to rise to at least 300,000 doses per day, and then to reach 500,000 by the end of April. “We are continuing our round of verification so that the machine is ready when very soon we will have a further availability of vaccines” said today Commissioner Figliulo on the occasion of the visit to the vaccination hub of Cagliari, adding that “already today they are arriving at the nationally over 500 thousand Modern doses. Yesterday more than one million Pfizer delivered to all distribution points and between today and tomorrow over 1.3 million AstraZeneca. This will give new breath to the horns to be able to implement the plan in a coherent manner “.
“We must also increase the number of vaccinators”, explained the commissioner “we will have a meeting with the president of the Region (Sardinia, ed.) And all his staff to better check how to proceed. Surely general practitioners must do their part : here I say it and I thank them for what they do, but we must all do more together “.
Figliuolo therefore reiterated that the aim is to reach “500 thousand daily administrations by the end of April throughout the national territory, because obviously no citizen is left behind, we all go forward compact in the same way”. The Jonhons & Jonhson vaccine will be fundamental, arriving on April 19th. Italy expects to receive 7.3 million doses of the drug by the end of June, but it is not clear how they will be spread. In short, the unknowns are still many. But if nothing else, something begins to show.
