(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 10 – An initial dose of the AstraZeneca
vaccine should be followed up by another one of the same
vaccine, the health ministry said Wednesday, ruling out the use
of another vaccine to follow the first Astrazeneca jab.
    The ministry said there were “still too few data on the
interchangeability of the AstraZeneca vaccine with other
anti-COVID vaccines”.
    Meanwhile in talks with premier-designate Mario Draghi Italy’s
provincial leaders called for the formation of a “civilian army”
to boost the vaccine rollout in Italy, which has been delayed by
failures to deliver the agreed amount of doses by producers
including AstraZeneca and Pfizer, sources at the
government-formation talks said.
    “A civilian army is needed to play its part to implement the
challenge of the vaccinations,” said the president of the
Italian union of provinces (UPI), Michele de Pascale, after the
talks with the former head of the European central Bank.
    “But another point of emergency,” de Pascale said, “are the
schools. which from a building standpoint are experiencing an
emergency for some time and the (COVID) Recovery Plan is an
opportunity to get them back within norms and launch an energy
saving programme”. (ANSA).
