“Who can still get Covid?”, The biologist Barbara Gallavotti answered this question in the study of Giovanni Floris a Tuesday on La7. In particular, he explained that at the moment the risk of contracting the serious disease depends on three factors: “Our vaccination status, our age and our health conditions. If we can’t do anything about the last two, as regards the vaccine instead the decision is up to us “.

As a demonstration of what has been said, the biologist took as an example a recent study of New York Times on hospitalizations in England between 6 September and 3 October. “This study shows that for those over the age of 80 the risk of being hospitalized for Covid is halved if vaccinated. In the first age group, 70-79, the risk is reduced to a third. In the even earlier age groups even more “, explained the expert. The most interesting aspect, however, is that” an unvaccinated minor risks being hospitalized for Covid even a little less than a vaccinated 40-year-old “. This is precisely because an important factor is age.

“If a fragile person gets vaccinated, once he has reduced his risk thanks to vaccination, the residual risk that remains depends on his condition – continued Gallavotti -. The decrease in risk, however, is never so great as to put who is fragile in the same conditions as those who are young and healthy “. This is tangible proof of what has always been said since it was discovered that the Delta variant could also infect the vaccinated.
