“All vaccines, including those for children, pass very rigorous tests and evaluations. They are not experimental products, they are safe and effective vaccines. Vaccines are proving extremely effective in preventing severe disease. The protection against hospitalization and death remains above 90%. Six months after the second dose, the effectiveness decreases against the contagion. If vaccinated individuals can become infected, it is also possible that they transmit the virus. Therefore it is important to keep the masks even if immunized. Our defense against the virus today rests on two legs: vaccination and prudent behavior, made up of masks, distance and hand washing “. Thus in an interview with La Repubblica Silvio Brusaferro he is president of the Higher Institute of Health and spokesperson for the Technical Scientific Committee.
“Getting infected is not a freedom”
For Brusaferro «getting infected is not a freedom, it is something that must be avoided as much as possible. Those who decide to risk getting infected by not getting vaccinated and not adopting prudent behavior put themselves in danger, and we see that Covid can have important consequences for health even in the long term. It endangers the most fragile it could infect, and who pay the highest price to this pandemic in terms of suffering. It also puts the health system at risk, which may not be able to assist people with other diseases in time ».
As for antiviral pills, according to the president of the ISS they will not replace vaccines: «They are different tools, and it is welcome that science and technology enrich our toolbox. The basic tool remains the vaccine. In any case, should a contagion occur, we would also have the possibility of using a drug that is easy to administer “.
Pregliasco: “Super Green passes from Monday or we risk Christmas”
«If the super green pass comes into effect from next week we could be able to save Christmas, if this happens after we risk not succeeding. But I would introduce it as early as next Monday ». The virologist of the State University of Milan and director of Anpas says this to Rai Radio1, guest of Un Giorno da Pecora Fabrizio Pregliasco.
