The great fear to be avoided is to make the calls slip to those who have already received the first dose of pfizer. In the general chaos of delays, stop and go and local disorganizations, the Franciscan general Paul son, commissioner for the coronavirus emergency, must also move in order to respect the timing between the two administrations. Today, March 23, the arrival of a million doses of the vaccine produced by the American multinational: a supply that could serve not to accumulate delays, but that will hardly give an accelerated to the campaign.
In all, in the week almost 3 million doses between pfizer (one million), modern (333,600) and astrazeneca (279,000). The risk on the calls was not unknown: the choice to focus on the wide-ranging distribution of the first dose, no longer retain a 30% in the freezer for calls, almost drained the reserves. From the point of view of stocks, astrazeneca is a less problem than pfizer.
Numbers and delaysthe million doses come as a fresh air vent, but will not put in pairs the general count of the supplies previewed for the end of March. As the courier of the evening notes, will miss to the appeal approximately 1.7 million doses: the ministry announced 15,69 million, but the son confirmed 14 million. The government would like to double the number of daily administrations, from 200 thousand to 400 thousand, but at the moment the realistic perspective is to reach 300 thousand.
At the moment, only 5 administrations do so, and there are no particular problems.
