The news was already in the air, but a little while ago it was the president of the region Michele Emiliano himself who confirmed it: in Puglia, the vaccination of high school students has been completed. «We can really say that the first test has passed! – he writes on social media – Thanks to all the girls and boys who responded to the call of the schools by vaccinating themselves en masse.
