COVID-19: Get the 4th Jab and Health Undersecretary Sirelli says-English

(ANSA)-Rome, July 13-Wednesday Deputy Minister of Health Pierpaolo Sirelli receives a fourth COVID-19 vaccine to get it immediately amid a sharp rise in transmission in Italy. I appealed to qualified people.
The fourth vaccine was reserved for people in their 80s and older and clinically vulnerable, but as of this week, it is possible for people over the age of 60 to reserve a fourth jab.
In Italy, taking a fourth dose so far has been disappointing.
Waiting for an updated version of the COVID-19 vaccine, which provides greater protection against Omicron variants, is a “mistake” for people, Sirelli said.
“Today’s vaccines are based on the form of the original virus, but work very well against serious forms of the disease, including those associated with Omicron variants and their variants.” Sirelli told the radio. capital.
“That’s what we have to worry about-preventing hospitals and intensive care units from overloading.”
Italy has lifted almost all restrictions related to COVID-19 and is obliged to wear face masks on public transport, long-term care facilities and hospitals.
Mr Sirelli said the government has no plans to regain restrictions in the fall. (ANSA).
