VENETO – “Veneto does not do open days with AstraZeneca and never has. We have said it from day one – underlines the president of Veneto, Luca Zaia, during the usual press point – We have applied the recommendation from the first day, not doing open days or promoting the vaccine under the age of 60. I do not accuse anyone, it is a discretionary choice that each Region makes for itself “. CAMPANIA – “The open days with AstraZeneca are blocked and the first doses will be administered only over the age of 60” says the president of the Campania Region, Vincenzo De Luca, who yesterday held a meeting with the general managers of the Campania local health authorities. “The open days with AstraZeneca – explains De Luca – are blocked for reasons of prudence, we have not had major problems. We only do the first doses over the age of 60, under the age of 60 we use it only for recalls and not for the first doses. “. The governor points out: “We have heard for the umpteenth time that the Scientific Technical Committee, which has no role in the certification of vaccines, has recommended the use of AstraZeneca over the age of 60. And for those who have already vaccinated under 60. years? What do we do for the recall? They don’t say a word. ” SICILY – From today to Sunday 13 in all the vaccination centers of the ASP (with the exception of those housed in hospitals) the ‘Open doors’ initiative in Sicily is active (8-20 hours): citizens aged 18 and over, who are not frail, they can be vaccinated on a voluntary basis even without a reservation.
