“The vaccination obligation for ages 5 and up is required”


In Italy there are about 10 million people not vaccinated and therefore not protected by Covid. The estimate is Silvio Garattini, president and founder of the Mario Negri Institute in Milan, who in an interview with Corriere della Sera explains that the priority is «pushing vaccinations» introducing in particular «the obligation from 5 years upwards».

The most concrete problem, Garattini observes, is “the impact of the unvaccinated” given that “among them there are 4 million over-50s and all children under 5 (for whom there is still no vaccine, ed. ). To these must be added the subjects who for various reasons, despite immunization, do not develop a sufficient immune response to protect against the disease (about 10%). Doing a rough calculation, we are talking about 10 million people susceptible to the virus in Italy “. That’s why «I think it would be right to introduce the obligation from 5 years upwards».

Furthermore, it would be necessary to “sequence the virus much more in order to have a precise picture of the spread of Omicron and immediately grasp the possible arrival of new variants”. But above all it is important “to maintain personal protections and avoid possible occasions of contagion”. Because “we are not in a situation of normality and anyone – even if vaccinated or cured – must do everything possible not to get infected. We must avoid any gathering that is not strictly necessary, I am thinking for example of the football championship. And I say it as a fan ».
