Catanzaro – At the moment, the administration of the Astrazeneca vaccine continues in Calabria even in younger age groups. Currently, on the open day reserved for high school graduates and eighth-grade children, from 12 to 20 years old Pfizer serum is administered while the over 20s receive one of the other vaccines available depending on the history made in the vaccination center.
“For us – Dr. Ludovico Abenavoli, member of the Region’s Covid Crisis Unit, told Ansa – the indications of the AIFA, which recommends a preferential use of Astrazeneca for the over 60s, are valid. If the indications were to change, obviously , we would adapt. The problem is that too much vaccination is left to the free will of even the individual doctor. More stringent indications are needed “. “Among other things – continues Abenavoli, gastroenterologist professor at the Magna Graecia University of Catanzaro – from the epidemiological data the cases of thrombosis related to Astrazeneca are comparable to those of the other vaccines with the exception of the cavernous cavity thrombosis. with this vaccine, we are conducting a reverse trial. In phase three, in fact, Astrazeneca was tested on people under 55 while now its use is recommended for people over 60 “.
