Lazio, liguria, toscana, emilia, Piedmont and Campania have decided to increase the range between the two administrations, on indication of the cts. There are no “data about a longer range of administration, except in real life observations, as it was done in the UK”. A solution valid for the committee because “it does not affect the effectiveness of the immune response”.

The new indications allow to stretch the times, so as to have more vaccines available and widen the audience of the people covered by the first dose. On Monday, May 10, the covid crisis unit of the Lazio region announced that on Monday, May 17 the calls for the pfizer vaccine will be extended to 5 weeks, i.e.

No changes, at the moment, instead for all other vaccines. But exemplified who had to make the pfizer call on May 17 will always do it in the same place and at the same time on May 31 and so to follow”.
