The nfectivologist: “Also evaluate variants, antibody titers and pandemic trends, but recall to an almost safe year” “The third dose” of anti-Covid vaccine “at the end of the year for health professionals and the elderly I think it will be very likely. However, the ongoing studies will also be analyzed, the viral variants in circulation evaluated, the antibody titer verified 5-6 months after the second dose and what kind of epidemiological situation we will have in November-December “. Claudio Mastroianni, director of the Infectious Diseases Department of the Policlinico Umberto I in Rome, says this to Adnkronos Health. “We must remember that V-Day in Italy was at the end of December 2020: the first doctors and nurses will almost certainly have to do a recall one year after the vaccine”, suggests the infectious disease specialist. For Mastroianni “it is right that we start with the vaccination pass: it is the only system at the moment that will allow us to resume moving safely and also controlling the circulation of the virus”. “We are already in the post-Covid vaccine age – observes the infectious disease specialist – We find ourselves having to manage the virus and the vaccination pass is a tool that, together with the measures we know, will help us to get out of the emergency or in any case to live with it in safety”.
