Today, Italy, thanks to all the actors involved, civil and military, is a reference point in the world in the fight against Covid and in the regulation of vaccinations for citizens”, said Figliolo. “I’ve made some important choices – and he continued – to balance the amount of available vaccines with health-related needs and the functioning of the Italian system.” “The merit of the Commissar Figliolo in the efficient organization of the vaccination system is undeniable – noted Gaetano Armao, Vice-President of the Sicily Region – even in Sicily where, we must remember, the constitution of the kingdom already in 1812 provided for the compulsory vaccination of its citizens.” This morning, at the headquarters of the Directorate, in Palazzo Steri, General Figiuolo will speak on “military values ​​at the service of the country in the fight against the epidemic”.
