“I have doubts about the generalized use of the third dose of the covid vaccine, but I would adapt if it were decided to do it”. Professor Massimo Galli, head of infectious diseases at the Sacco hospital in Milan, expresses himself in Cartabianca. “As far as I’m concerned, if the decision were made to vaccinate with the third dose, I would adapt without ifs and buts, as any healthcare professional who works for the public should do. On the third dose I have concerns about generalized use, it is important know how many people are responding. Those who did not respond to the first or second dose probably would not respond to the third either. It would be important to develop strategies that you are glossing over. If they ask us to do it, we will. But I would very much like to see a updated vaccine, “says Galli. So, the current photo of the emergency in Italy: “We will not have full hospitals, we will have some critical issues in the next month with the increase in the number of cases without reaching the pressure on hospitals seen last year. Today we still had 71 deaths, not we have to get used to these numbers anyway. Not even one death is acceptable. “A slice of the population continues to say no to vaccines. “There are absurd complaints. It is viewed with suspicion that these vaccines were made in a short period, but it is unknown that previous vaccines were more rudimentary.”
