Vaccines, Gimbe alarm: “Risk less doses available in August”

“It is possible that in August we will have fewer” coronavirus “vaccines available compared to the demand for first doses”. The alarm was raised by Nino Cartabellotta, president of the Gimbe Foundation, to the microphones of the broadcast ‘L’Italia s’รจ desta’, on Radio Cusano Campus. “We are maintaining the average of 530-550 thousand doses per day, even if – says Cartabellotta – the percentage of the first doses has progressively decreased. For the third quarter we expected 94 million doses, but in fact J&J and Astrazeneca will probably never arrive since we are not using them. So – he stresses – we will have 45 million doses of vaccines per mRna, to maintain a certain regularity of administration we should arrive 15 million a month, but it is difficult “. “While I am in favor of vaccinating teachers and those who have an activity in contact with the public, it must also be said that the reopening in the presence of schools does not depend only on the vaccination of those 15% of staff who are not vaccinated “, continues Cartabellotta.” There are many other variables – he warns – that have not been addressed. As for the students, it is unlikely that we will be able to reach the beginning of the school year with adequate coverage of vaccinated children, at beyond whether you want to vaccinate or not “.
