“The recall of the Covid vaccine on vacation? It seems to me a very clever solution”. These are the words of Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa who, speaking to Adnkronos Salute, comments on the proposal examined by the Regions for the administration of the second dose to tourists who make long stays. “On the other hand – says Bassetti – if one goes to Piedmont in the mountains for a month and is Ligurian, or comes to Liguria from Milan because he has a house in Santa Margherita, it is reasonable to think that the recall dose is given to him in the country where he spends a lot If, on the other hand, I go on holiday to the Island of Elba for a week, rather than to Sardinia, and my booster dose falls precisely in that week there – urges the infectious disease specialist – it takes greater flexibility: or I do it sooner or later. Nothing happens. We try to be more flexible. The goal – he stresses – is to vaccinate as many people as possible with two doses to get to October with the largest number of people vaccinated “. Moreover, recalls Bassetti, “all the studies are telling us that by mixing together the vaccines, that is the mRna vaccines with the viral vector ones, or putting the second dose a little later up to 60 days, the vaccines work well. we must be rigid. I think – he concludes – that it would be much more useful if the Scientific Technical Committee expressed itself on a greater dynamism of these decisions, such as mixing vaccines and delaying doses, rather than on how many people have to sit at the table “.
