We keep both possibilities open – explained the councilor for welfare and vice president, Letizia Moratti – because an increasingly important arrival of vaccines is expected. For example, even on Saturday and Sunday, despite the weekend, we have exceeded 100,000 doses per day. I therefore confirm that we can reach 144,000 doses in our massive centers, to which are added the availability in pharmacies and companies. At the current doses, that is, maintaining the 100,000 doses per day, we would arrive at July 30 at one dose for each Lombard citizen. With 120,000 doses per day, by 10 July, we could immunize all the Lombards with a first dose », announced the number two of the Pirellone.
