And next week a last meeting is scheduled. with pediatricians to refine the logistical aspects “.
“For the beginning of July – underlined Cirio – the vaccination of children can start. We made the formal step today, and then there will be the substantial step that will be done next week. In fact, there is a technical problem to be solved. membership on the portal, because parents must adhere with the child’s tax code, and consent must be given by both. In addition to the health aspects, there are some logistical issues to manage, but we are perfectly on time “.
That of children is not the only open front on the issue of vaccines. The reason for the cuts on summer supplies, guarantees on future ones.

The count of the 715 thousand Pfizer doses, which the Region will have available in July, is in fact a far cry from the one million per month promised and arrived in June. Part of the one million and 100 thousand doses that will arrive by the end of the month will in fact be used in the following days, and therefore can be counted among the doses available in June, but, according to the prospectus delivered to the Crisis Unit, compared to the 250 thousand doses received on average each week in this month, from 8 July there will be supplies of 139 thousand doses at a time.
In short, a slowdown, despite the fact that President Cirio still asked the local health authorities to maintain an average of 37-38 thousand vaccines per day to guarantee the appointments already planned and not to slow down the vaccination machine too much. For this reason the governor wants to know, from General Figliuolo, the reasons for the cut and to have guarantees that there are no others.
