The family doctors put in patience, commitment and professionalism but the work of convincing the diehards who have not yet been vaccinated “is very difficult”. Pier Luigi Bartoletti, deputy secretary of Fimmg, the Italian Federation of General Practitioners, explains this to Adnkronos Salute. “Part of the work on the hesitant to immunization was done before the summer – adds Bartoletti – now among those who are not yet vaccinated there remain the most hostile ones who can be divided into a 70% who is against the vaccine and a 30% who has still doubts. The former do not convince them and often they do not even tell you if they come to the studio for other issues, or if you take the topic they come up with fake news “. Read also Bartoletti was “surprised” to see in recent months how the ranks of ‘ni vax’ and ‘no vax’ “are broader and I did not think they were so convinced of their positions after all these months, young people – he observes – are more willing to listen and understand the need to get vaccinated “. How can we intervene today to immunize even those who are reluctant? Given that the Gimbe Foundation estimates that 3.5 million over 50s have not yet been vaccinated. “It is very difficult and I say this with daily experience – admits Bartoletti – even on the possibility that we will reach the obligation then I have doubts about who will enforce it. With whom will he not immunize himself even with the obligation that will be done? Who will control? “.
