Lombardy will be the first Italian region to become immune to covid. This was said by Vice President Letizia Moratti, underlining the role of young people in the vaccination campaign.
“Now Lombardy is running, I think we will be the first Region to achieve community immunity – were the words of the councilor for Welfare to the microphones of the program ‘Mattino 5’ -. I believe that it will also be useful in the future for the safe reopening of schools “.
“The rigor and prudence that have been there so far have paid off and have given us such good numbers that next week they will allow us to go to the white zone – continued Moratti -. I believe that we always need prudence and collective responsibility, now yes it’s about having individual responsibility, but I’m sure everyone will be cautious. “
From last in class to “teacher”: thus Lombardy has turbo-charged vaccines
To highlight how the pandemic picture has significantly improved in our region also the extraordinary emergency commissioner, Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, at a hearing before the Budget Committee of the Chamber on Monday 7 June. The anti-covid vaccination campaign in Lombardy had started badly, said Figliolo, “mainly due to serious problems with the information systems” which “have been resolved, also thanks to the commissioner structure”.
“But after the first initial missteps, the extraordinary emergency commissioner continued,” the Region showed all its great abilities. Today it is above average in almost all age groups “and” the plan is doing very well, “added the commissioner.
In the coming days, the vaccine booking system in Lombardy will be updated: from the end of June – as Figliuolo had asked in recent days – it will be possible to change the day of the serum recall if this represents a problem even if only related to holidays. One way to widen the audience of the immunized as much as possible.
