Out of about one million and 400 thousand workers, 227,970 subjects who have not yet received the first dose of vaccine would be missing. These are the numbers dating back to 23 June, against a national coverage of 84%.
In some regions the percentage of absentees would be 25%, in particular in: Campania, Sicily, Liguria, Sardinia and Umbria. With a slowdown in the administration of school staff which in the last week has made a number of less than 1% mark.
Figliuolo therefore asks the Regions to “implement in a more incisive way the method of actively reaching these citizens, by booking the members and communicating to the commissioner’s structure by 20 August the number of subjects unable to join the vaccination campaign for health reasons and those who have expressed the will not to join the aforementioned campaign“.
Another objective, in view of the reopening of the school, would be the vaccination of adolescents between 12 and 16 years. In this direction comes the appeal of the Fimp which it considers fundamental to avoid the spread of the new variants. In fact, they write “it is now proven that minors fall ill with the same incidence as adults, albeit with fortunately lower percentages of severity, and that they represent a potential source of spread of the virus in all areas of life attended”.
Meanwhile, on the safety measures for the return in September, a commission of the ministries of Health and Education, the Higher Institute of Health and Inail has already met. Probably, the rules on distancing within the institutions will remain.
“We are working – said the Minister – to exclude Dad next year and not find ourselves like that in last year’s situation. We are all working on it, not just me, even all the teachers. We work for a school in the presence that gives a lot of attention to society, there is a need for children to return to each other. A school that, however, must also pay a lot of attention to that recovery of all the knowledge that obviously in such a difficult year were more lacking”
