Pfizer vaccine for 12-16 years in Lazio, the Junior open day arrives on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 June in Lazio. This was announced by the councilor for health and social and health integration of the Lazio Region, Alessio D’Amato, explaining that “the booking will take place from the site librovaccino-covid.regione.lazio.it/welcome also accessible from the SaluteLazio portal. the operating procedures will also be joined by pediatricians of free choice “.
However, an alarm message arrives from pediatricians. “In the Lazio Region we do not have the doses to vaccinate adolescents from 12 to 15 years of age: as pediatricians of free choice we have signed the union agreement for anti-Covid vaccinations in this age group, but the Region has assured us the supply of only 2 ampoules per week per doctor, or 12 doses “, says Patrizio Veronelli, regional secretary of the Italian Confederation of Pediatricians – Cipe del Lazio.
“The average number of patients between 12 and 15 years in charge of each pediatrician – underlines Veronelli – is 150-200 units: at this rate we will finish the vaccination cycle for Christmas, instead of ensuring a safer summer for young people and The media campaign has started, the parents call us to make an appointment, we are bombarded with requests that we cannot fulfill – reports the secretary Cipe -. During the regional committee we were told that there is no time limit for administering the second dose, precisely because of the shortage of vials. Indeed – he underlines – we were asked to be willing to vaccinate parents too, when we cannot even guarantee serums for children “.
“It is not possible to work in these conditions, without drugs and by navigating on sight. We need – insists Veronelli – adequate doses, certain deliveries and timelines even for recalls. Our goal remains to quickly close the vaccination cycle of children in view of the holidays and the reopening of schools in September, to remove as much as possible the spectrum of distance learning or quarantines “concludes Veronelli.
