The president of the Region Luca Zaia explains and denies the news also a note of the emergency commissioner led by General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo. With reference to the news published today by some press organs regarding the assignment of vaccine doses to the Veneto Region from other Regions, the validity of the news is denied, specifying that any transfer of doses between Regions is the exclusive competence of the Commissioner Structure , in fact, he specifies in the note. ” The extraordinary Commissioner, during the Conference of Regions held yesterday – reads the note – had already reiterated that with regard to the Vaxzevria vaccine, less used in some Regions, any balances are carried out, having consulted the Regions concerned, always and exclusively by the Commissioner Structure, for programmatic reasons and consistency with the vaccination plan, as well as for reasons related to transport logistics and the cold chain ”. south to north but, as has already happened, also between southern regions, they are still to be considered as advances of vaccine doses with a view to a constant rebalancing of the expected distribution between regions / autonomous provinces, following the criterion ‘one head – one vaccine ”.
