Italy aims to give all over-60s COVID vaccine in Q2 - health minister

Thu 15th April, 2021 11:33am
MILAN, April 15 (Reuters) - Italy aims to administer a first
dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to everyone over 60 by the end of the
second quarter, Health Minister Roberto Speranza said on
Thursday.
    Speaking at a parliamentary hearing, Speranza also said he
hoped there will soon be clarity over the Johnson&Johnson jab,
which has been suspended over side-effect concerns, in order to
clear its use.
    The AstraZeneca vaccine "like all vaccines marketed in
Europe, is safe and effective, it saves lives," Speranza said. 
    He warned that a hasty easing of lockdown measures in Italy
would only trigger more infections and new restrictions, so any
easing needed to be introduced carefully and gradually.
