“After 15 days from the first dose of Covid vaccine you get the green pass, which is valid until you get the second dose, unless you get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is single-dose. At that point it is renewed and it is valid for up to 9 months. So you are covered by the green pass 2 weeks after the first dose “. Undersecretary of Health Pierpaolo Sileri, who spoke to ‘Timeline’ on Sky Tg24, explains how the covid green pass works in Italy. The national pass, as is known, is issued in the event of vaccination, certified recovery and negative swab. “The green pass will be introduced globally in Europe from July 1st. The various countries are all leaving. We have already started, in paper form. The IT document will follow. We are slowly ready,” he says. Sileri. According to the undersecretary, “there are some things that need to be overcome and reviewed also at a European level. An example: if I am vaccinated and I have a green pass and in a plane a person in a row behind mine turns out to be positive, today I have to do the quarantine. But this thing must be overcome because either we trust vaccines once and for all or we remain in a kind of limbo “. Even for places in the restaurant “we use the green pass well, we should have progressively greater freedom of movement”. “In Italy the green pass is already there. With three possible formulas: vaccination, tampon, recovery. modulate the entry of people arriving in Italy. And some things need to be improved. First of all, consider our compatriots who have made another type of vaccine, like Sputnik “, he explains. “This vaccine should be included and it also concerns citizens who come from San Marino. How should the case of the people, a few hundred, who have done the Reithera trial: they must also be able to receive the green pass”. Sileri stresses, however, that these are choices “that must be made in agreement. Firstly, following the guidelines of the WHO. And secondly with respect to directives that must be valid throughout Europe”.
