The importance of vaccination for the most vulnerable

Still with reference to the trend of the pandemic in Italy, according to the virologist, “the real difference this winter will be made by the number of fragile people who will be vaccinated”. “The vaccine will no longer be mandatory, for the Green pass to be clear, but I hope that we will move towards a vaccination schedule such as the flu as a target. It can be done from 12 years onwards, but it is essential for those at risk do the recall, since the protection is reduced after 4/6 months “, he concluded.
