Covid, how to book the third dose of vaccine region by region

The third dose “is likely to be needed by everyone”. This was underlined by the Undersecretary of Health, Pierpaolo Sileri. Here then, for some Italian regions, all the access methods necessary for booking the additional dose of the anti-Covid vaccine

“The third dose is likely to be necessary for everyone.” Undersecretary for Health Pierpaolo Sileri underlined this: the new vaccination was launched on 20 September with the start of additional doses for the approximately 3 million “fragile” patients. From 27 September, the third “booster” dose for over 80s, RSA and healthcare professionals was also approved. The third dose, in fact, can be considered in two ways. As an additional dose it represents an additional dose to complete the vaccination course and can be administered after 28 days from the completion of the primary course. It concerns immunocompromised patients, including dialysis, cancer, oncohematology and bone marrow transplant patients. As a “booster” dose, however, at least 6 months must have elapsed from the administration of the second dose of anti-Covid vaccine. But how can you access the reservation? Here are the main indications for some Italian regions.
