Here is the CTS decision and for those under sixty who have already received the first dose of Vaxzevria, they will do the second dose with Pfizer and Moderna
ROMA — The Covid Vaxzevria vaccine will only be injected to those over 60, while those under 60 who received the first dose with this vaccine will do the second with Pfizer or Moderna. This is the choice of the Scientific Committee arrived in the afternoon and announced at a press conference by the extraordinary commissioner of the general vaccine plan Francesco Paolo Figliuolo.
The CTS has in fact recommended for the first doses of vaccinations to reserve the doses of AstraZeneca for those who are 60 years of age or older for the under 60 age group there is instead the recommendation for mRna vaccines.
An opinion that came after the controversy arising from the death of the 18-year-old from Sestri Levante suffering from an autoimmune disease and who died a few days after receiving the first dose of AstraZeneca.
Tuscany is among the 6 Italian regions that, in the months of May and June, used the highest number of doses of Vaxzevria to vaccinate the over-60s (the others are Sicily, Calabria, Lazio, Umbria and the Autonomous Province of Bolzano). And even people under 40 have never been admitted to the open days, unlike other regions that have organized open days without age limits.
