We give the maximum collaboration and we trust in the respect of the rules”. White zone “Will we stay in the white zone? Yes. We have to be pragmatic. We have already had the variants and the Delta is certainly a faster variant, in terms of incidence but it is fought by increasing the vaccination, with all the vaccines available”. “All vaccines, obviously completing the vaccination process, allow to cover the effect of this variant. It is therefore important to accelerate – underlined D’Amato -. We have recalled all the over 60s, anticipating AstraZeneca to 56 days.

We must therefore use all the weapons at our disposal.” a week “says D’Amato. “But it is the lesser evil, compared to an objective drop in supplies. The important thing is to reach the goal we have set ourselves. That is to reach the 8th of August to have 70% of the population over 12 in double dose. convinced that we will make it “. Vaccines boys” Today we are here for the calls of the Juniors, it is an important moment. 40,000 children between this and next week will finish the vaccination course.
