Someone called the doctor to ask for an exemption from vaccination, someone else now finds himself sick but has not changed his mind. And there are also those who have tried to discuss virus theories found online with their doctor. GPs are the first line of health care, and every day they have conversations with those who do not believe in the virus: it happens, for example, every time an unvaccinated patient gets Covid. “The positives are mostly not vaccinated – says Sandro Vasina -.

Someone called the doctor to ask for an exemption from vaccination, someone else now finds himself sick but has not changed his mind. And there are also those who have tried to discuss virus theories found online with their doctor. GPs are the first line of health care, and every day they have conversations with those who do not believe in the virus: it happens, for example, every time an unvaccinated patient gets Covid. “The positives are mostly unvaccinated – says Sandro Vasina -. I hear them every day, I contact them to check that they do not develop serious illness. In one case an entire unvaccinated family was positivized, and a young boy was hospitalized. . Another patient, on the other hand, had asked me for clinical documentation to verify that he was exempt from vaccination, but on the contrary his pathology recommended it “.

Vasina tells of having previously launched an information campaign on the benefits of the vaccine among his clients: “But what affects me – he says – is that my explanation with scientific data I feel I propose hypotheses or opinions acquired through Facebook or other social networks, without real knowledge of the current situation. In Italy no one died from vaccine anaphylactic shock. In the event that there is really a danger linked to allergies, there is a guarantee procedure in the hospital, next to the anesthetist, for a more security. I’d like people to look more at the data and not be swayed by unscientific opinions. ”

Even Paolo Farina, who has an outpatient clinic in Alfonsine, has received requests for exemption from the vaccine: “There are many improper ones, also facilitated by fellow specialists who make certifications inducing unforeseen reasons, such as autoimmune or connective tissue diseases. In reality, the conditions for which exemptions are provided are very few: for example in the case of pericarditis or myocarditis after a previous vaccination, or for a known hypersensitivity or allergy to the active ingredients or to the excipients of the vaccine. in which vaccination is recommended, but if the woman does not feel like it, we understand it and we have the possibility to make her exempt “. Farina also sees many no vax infected, “but even then they repent: many of these people remain in their religious limbo, because not getting vaccinated becomes a belief rather than an attitude based on science or reasoning”.

“It is difficult to convince someone who does not want to be convinced – adds Luciano Biolchini, general practitioner in Faenza -. There were those who asked me for an exemption from the vaccine for their beliefs about supposed allergies or pathologies … But when it is explained that it is not possible, it ends there. The unvaccinated do not change their minds even when they fall ill on the verge of hospitalization, and at the same time they infect vaccinated people who develop only mild symptoms “.
