(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 5 – Health Minister Roberto Speranza said
that the government has asked to extend the use of the
AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to over-65s during a meeting with
regional governments on Friday, sources said.
    At the moment the AstraZeneca jab is only authorised for adults
aged up to 65 in Italy.
    The minister said Italy will cross the threshold of having
administered five million COVID-19 vaccine doses on Friday.
    Speranza also suggested creating a vaccine “solidarity fund” by
setting aside 1-2% of the doses supplied to be used in areas
where the virus is spreading especially fast, in part because of
the arrival of new variants. (ANSA).
