Toti: “Next week the third dose for health professionals will start”
At the beginning of next week, the administration of the third dose will start for all hospital and local health authorities in Liguria, together with bookings for non-hospital healthcare professionals, i.e. freelancers, general practitioners and pediatricians of free choice. At the end of the week, reservations will also start for the third dose intended for the ultra-frail over 60.
The announcement came from the president of the Liguria Region Giovanni Toti: “Reservations – he explained – can be made through the site prenotovaccino.regione.liguria.it. Obviously you will be able to receive the booster dose, the booster to strengthen the immune response, only after 6 months from the second dose. It will not be possible to book the administration before this deadline “.
“The following week – Toti concludes – bookings for the third dose will start for the entire over 60 range. In the next few days we will provide further details. At this point, a new phase in the Liguria Region vaccination campaign opens: I want to reiterate my appeal to join, given the extraordinary results obtained so far thanks to vaccination, which allows us to remain in the white zone since last June 7, and that it is allowing the whole country to reopen, avoiding new, painful closures and restrictions, as well as obviously protecting our health and those around us ”.
