Italy starts rolling out AstraZeneca vaccine


Italy started using the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in the central Lazio region around Rome on Thursday, the first to rolling out jabs. 


The Ministry of Health recommends that AstraZeneca, added to Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, must be given to the 18-55 age group in good health. 


Regional Health Commissioner Alessio D’Amato pointed out that a large vaccination center has been opened at Fiumicino Airport and can vaccinate 3,000 people every day.  “What we mean is to really make the promotion of vaccines reach the highest speed” he said.


 Pfizer and AstraZeneca’s vaccine delivery delays have severely hit the Italian vaccine launch. It declared the possibility of legal action against the company.
