“Having reached 80% of the population fully vaccinated” against Covid-19, “we will have a further reduction in infections, hospitalizations and deaths, therefore a country in safety. There is no magic percentage” of vaccination coverage to aim for, “but some scientists believe that with 80% of vaccinates, both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated are protected.” For this reason of the vaccination obligation “I believe that at this moment it is not necessary to talk about it too much, but to keep it as an option as a last resort”. Pierpaolo Sileri, Undersecretary of Health, specified this to the microphones of the broadcast ‘Italy has awakened’ on Radio Cusano Campus “We can speak of obligation immediately – he explained – but there are many factors to consider, for example the bureaucratic path to have a definitive ok on all vaccines. The other thing to consider are the decisions of other countries. And then “we must” understand if the obligation is for everyone or only for some categories. When it comes to obligation, we need to express a little better when, who and with which vaccine “. Sileri then explains that” a person vaccinated “against Covid-19 can encounter the coronavirus, which” tries to access this person, rests in his nostrils, but it finds an immune system that is ready to destroy it. ” Therefore “the vaccinated, if he is asymptomatic, will infect much less than the unvaccinated, also because the virus will last less in his body”. “When around you have 80% of people vaccinated – he added – even if you are positive you cannot create big problems, at most someone will catch a cold. There is a study of the San Raffaele” in Milan “with the hospital of Boston which demonstrates the difference between the contagiousness of vaccinated and unvaccinated “. “The Green pass can be challenged, but we need to explain what it is for. It is clear that it is a push towards” anti-Covid vaccination, and “it is a fact that since the Green pass was introduced, the curve of contagions. The intervention through the Green pass, and therefore through vaccination and diagnostics, has reduced the contagion and found some positives that do not fall within known chains of contagion “, stressed Sileri. only to categories such as RSA workers, cleaning and school canteens, “it is not a step backwards – assured Sileri – It has always been said that the possible extension would be evaluated according to the epidemiological trend and the progress of vaccination. At the moment the circulation of the virus is under control, the vaccination is going very well, so there has been only this adjustment. However the option of a further extension of the Green pass is always in the drawer. o go ahead with the vaccination – the undersecretary pointed out – the less it will be necessary to proceed with further extensions of the Green pass. Let’s go and vaccinate those over 50 who have not yet been vaccinated, because As for the possibility of exemption from the Grenn pass for minors, Sileri points out that “over 12 years there is a vaccine available, so it is associated with the possibility of having the Green pass. that the exemption can facilitate or worsen the life of the Green pass. Indeed, an extension of the Green pass to the entire vaccinable population is a safety measure. “Maybe – he added – in the younger age groups it would be right to guarantee the free tampon, even if my advice is to get vaccinated anyway. In my opinion, salivary tests should also be extended”, Sileri also stressed. “Maybe a year ago they could have been premature because the first ones approved were less reliable”, but “today they are much more reliable. When you have an 8-10-12 year old child, it is easier to do a salivary test”. of the school, “I’m not worried or optimistic: I’m a realist. The situation is different from last year. We have an important share of the population vaccinated” against Covid-19, “the protocols are well permeated, the teaching staff is for the vast majority vaccinated, as well as the parents and grandparents of the pupils. Progress has also been made on transport, although something more can be done. I don’t see why we should see outbreaks of contagion “, concluded Sileri.
