(ANSA) – GENOA, 17 AUGUST – “We no longer talk about the vaccination campaign or the fourth dose. We only talk about the electoral campaign”. So in a video on social networks the infectious disease specialist Matteo Bassetti, whose name had been made in recent days as a possible candidate, ‘dictates’ the line to follow: fourth dose for over 65s with updated vaccines starting from the end of September.

“The campaign for the fourth dose was a total failure – said Bassetti -: 30% of the over 80s took the fourth dose, 13% of the over 70s and only 7% of the over 60s. a mistake. It was enough to ask those who do this job to know that it would be an announced failure “.

The fourth dose, which instead will be “essential to protect at least the most fragile part of the population, that is the elderly and those with comorbidities”, especially “in the autumn when with the Centaurus variant we will have many infections. We must do what others do. Countries that are moving towards a vaccination in September-October, already oriented on Omicron variants – says Bassetti – and it will be necessary to allocate this vaccination to over 65s and frail people “.
