“Yes”, virologist Fabrizio Pregliasco “intends to follow” Virginia, the 23-year-old student who in Massa accidentally received multiple doses of Pfizer’s anti-Covid vaccine in a single injection. But he specifies: “I have just started, I just talked to my mother. Nothing more – he tells Adnkronos Salute – I only agreed on the fact of giving a hand. I will follow her, I intend to see her and monitor how she goes. there is only this moment. ” Why did they knock on the doors of the medical director of Irccs Galeazzi in Milan and professor at the State University of the Lombard capital? “The contact took place through common knowledge”, explains Pregliasco who is not afraid of big risks for the young woman: “I really hope not. There is not a very high risk of overdose – he stresses -. Having received more doses of the vaccine should give only slightly more intense side effects. The mother told me about a particular dehydration, it is true. But in the literature there are no reports of particularly worrying situations. It would be surprising the opposite. There would be a strange therapeutic relationship “. is still a fixed date for the meeting with the girl. “Let’s see, there is nothing defined yet – the virologist explains – but we will find a way, even by going to meet her in Tuscany, through the Anpas”, the voluntary organization, chaired by Pregliasco. The expert does not want to overreact by not even starting to examine the case. But use reassuring words to answer questions. In cases like this, is there a problem with the booster expected with this vaccine? “I would say no,” observes the doctor who still expects to find “higher” levels of antibodies in the girl’s blood.
