It pointed out that so far, people have been injected with 6,715,732 doses of vaccine, accounting for 85.1% of the 7,891,990 doses distributed to regions of the country.
The Italian Medicines Agency AIFA suspended the use of AstraZenecavaccine nationwide on Monday as a preventive measure until the European Medicines Agency and several other countries make a ruling.
Following the death of a clarinet teacher after being vaccinated, Piedmont banned the use of the batch as a preventive measure. Biella’s prosecutor opened a homicide investigation in the death of teacher Sandro Tognatti and seized several batches of jabs across the country.
