Covid, the second booster vaccine for just 29% of the public. The government is launching a campaign

For days, scientists – virologists and infectious disease specialists – as well as doctors have been asking for a fourth dose of a vaccine (or a second booster) to be pushed to stop a wave of Omicron. Studies have shown that new injection “Three times the protection against critical illness” for those over the age of 60, but the protection against infection is short-lived. A duration that allows, however, to stop the virus at a time when circulation is very high. Within three months of the availability of the fourth dose of the Covid vaccine according to official data, it was given to 1,291,979, i.e. 29.1% of the public and therefore less than 1 in 3,349,803 immunocompromised, 44.2% instead of the total, Who completed the vaccination course with Re-Call For at least 4 months. 359,179 (8.12% of the population likely to receive the second booster dose) recovered after the first booster dose for a maximum of 6 months.

In recent days, the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, made an appeal and a communication campaign was launched yesterday. In accordance with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) directives, since last April 14, the Ministry has recommended a second booster dose or a fourth dose, pfor the elderly and the frail, Given the fact that it occurs 4 months after the first booster dose Obvious decrease in coverage against Sars-Cov-2.

Giving a second booster dose restores vaccination coverage and is essential to protect the most vulnerable people, who are at greater risk of contracting serious illness from Covid-19. Currently, the recipients of the second booster dose are the elderly over 80 years of age, elderly residents of nursing homes, More than 60 with very fragile conditionsand family members and caregivers for members of the target groups. But it is not likely that the audience will be expanded to include other segments of the population. The fourth dose was started on the first of March for those with suppressed immune system. In recent days, Regine Lazio’s health consultant has also requested an evaluation of the booster for over 70 years.

For Fabrizio Brigliasco, Professor of Hygiene at Milan State University, it is time to “extend now”, without waiting for the fall, the possibility of undergoing the fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine “to over 60 years”. Regarding the floundering in the second flop for the elderly over 80 and the frail 60-79, he’s back to point the finger at a “wrong narrative” that produced a “disaster,” he told Adnkronos Salute. He also says that the responsibility for this failure lies with “Who is advised to wait for new vaccines, because current vaccines will not be necessaryInstead, they serve, the expert specifies, and indeed “a large-scale and intensive vaccination as possible is welcome. Making the fourth dose is critical, even lowering it The current age limitBecause the situation requires it. A false narrative, even by some family doctors – repeated Irccs Director of Health Galeazzi – hampered a valid vaccination that it was based on the Wuhan SARS-CoV-2 strain, “the new original coronavirus,” but nonetheless gives a valid boost to immune defenses “for those most vulnerable.” at risk of developing complications from infection.
