“How do you say on a television show not to give AstraZeneca vaccines to girls and women between 35 and 55 years old?”. Matteo Bassetti stings Massimo Galli. The director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino hospital in Genoa, on Facebook, stigmatizes a sentence pronounced by Galli in Cartabianca. “I would not vaccinate girls and women aged 30 to 55 with AstraZeneca,” said the head of infectious diseases at the Sacco di Milano. “On what scientific basis are these claims based? This is a personal position that is against that of EMA and against the British and international scientific literature. When you speak every night, on every television program and you are of a certain age, sooner or later the you say stupid. And last night it was called serious and heavy “, writes Bassetti on social media. “Sometimes if you do not know what to answer, it is better if you shut up or let those who know more than you talk about it. It would avoid bad figures (but by now we are used to those) and important damage in the communication on vaccines”, he concludes.
