Convince teachers and school staff to get vaccinated as soon as possible, because it is the only way to return to school safely. This is the appeal launched by General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo on a visit to the Acea vaccination hub in Rome. “In the 60-69 years there are still 1 million and 400 thousand. We must continue trying to facilitate this type of activity, we go to look for them even in the most remote areas. At the 50-59 years we are a little behind and this is linked to a logic of vaccination policy: we pushed a lot on the 80s and 70s and now we will focus on the 50s “, said the special commissioner for the Covid emergency. “We must try to convince those 215 thousand teachers and we hope to reach at least 180/190 thousand vaccinated. This – he underlined – will allow us to arrive safely at the opening of schools. And with good coverage of over 80% of school operators but even of young people aged 12 and over, we will have a good certainty of going back to school in the presence and even with few limitations “. Son reiterated that” we must have 80% of the population vaccinated by the end of September “. “I also ask the media to make an effort of persuasion because I would not want the citizens to be vaccinated, beyond the doses,” continues the general. “As for the doses – he assures – we are able to continue with this pace of 500 thousand and we will move forward. Our goal is to give the maximum amount of doses when needed to each Region. And, of course, never stockpile. To do this we need excellent planning and excellent logistics. I am confident, even if we are at the limit of the doses we will be able to cover all needs “. “Today we are 39.3% immunized throughout Italy,” he said. “We are well organized – underlined the extraordinary commissioner for the Covid emergency – the numbers are good, but we always want more and this is the meaning of the discussions we are having on a technical level with all the Regions, to redo the agendas and intervene where necessary in some Regions “. Then he defined” the sensational numbers of Lazio “. “Consider that today over 92% of the over 80s are safe. We will look for the others, but if we compare them with international numbers, having 92% of the over 80s vaccinated means having secured the older ones”, he has declared. “Even on the over 70s – he recalled – we are around 80%. We are working well. Now we have to continue on the over 50s and then secure the youngest, who are the ones who run more but above all for the variations and for the beginning of the school year “.
