Sileri: “We will not stop AstraZeneca but the EMA will have to pronounce itself again”

The Netherlands blocks the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine for everyone but this should not cause concern.

The Undersecretary of Health Pierpaolo Sileri says this: “We will not stop Astrazeneca – announces in an interview with the press – We must go ahead with vaccination”.

And yet, he adds, “I believe the EMA will have to rule again to introduce an age limit, not to block or suspend the administration. Once the age group with a higher risk of thrombosis has been identified, a limit is set for the administration or a ‘warning that provides for monitoring of who is vaccinated “.

In his opinion “it is a complication that, once recognized in time, is easily treatable”. Sileri stresses that “we are exactly at the peak of the third wave and at the end of April we will see the first effects of vaccinations. The hospital departments will have oxygen again. In some areas of the country the numbers are already starting to fall – he explains -. At the end of April we will reach 500 thousand doses per day will be the decisive curve “.
