“I have a 10-year-old daughter. If she were 12 I would have her vaccinated in the morning” against Covid19. Word of Roberto Burioni, full professor of Microbiology and Virology at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan. “Above 40 years one must vaccinate because the risk deriving from vaccination is infinitesimal compared to that which can derive from contracting Covid. For young people and children, the discourse is more complex”, he explained during a live event on the Facebook page and on the channels of the San Donato Group, entitled ‘Covid-19: a battle that science is winning’. “First of all, we must say that in most cases this viral infection occurs mildly. But this does not mean that it always occurs irrelevant – he specified – Rarer problems have been described that should not be overlooked. Two other elements are that the child, the young, can protect himself and is also an important element in circulation. All viruses circulate in schools, we know that the interaction between children and young people is immensely higher than that between 50 years old “. “Many parents – continued the virologist – rightly say: what are the long-term consequences of the vaccine? We cannot know them since a vaccine has been in use for 6 months, it’s true, we don’t have a time machine. All we can say is that, in the history of vaccines, none of those we have had serious consequences after 2 months. The discourse on the long-term consequences “, Burioni also observed,” also applies to the use of cell phones “.
