Italy gives vulnerable people in the country a third dose of a corona vaccine this month. It is primarily about people who, for example, have cancer or have had an organ transplant, according to the Italian news agency ANSA.
After that, the over 80s, nursing home residents and health staff will take their turn, says Health Minister Roberto Speranza. He went on to say that the vaccination campaign was running well in the country but stressed that more Italians need to get vaccinated. Almost 72 percent of all people over the age of twelve are now fully vaccinated.
More and more countries are deciding to switch to a third coronavirus. It is now being administered in only a small number of countries. In most countries, these pricks only go to vulnerable ones, just as in Italy soon, but in Israel the so-called booster shots have recently been offered to anyone over the age of twelve. In the Netherlands, the authorities are still waiting for the advice of the Health Council.
Italy has recorded more than 129,500 corona-related deaths since the start of the pandemic. A total of nearly 4.6 million coronavirus infections have been detected. According to health experts, the corona situation in Italy is fairly stable at the moment.
