(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 18 – Premier Mario Draghi said Thursday
that the delays in deliveries that have held back the COVID-19
vaccination campaign are set to be made up for, at least in
part.
    “The increase in supplies of some vaccines will help to
compensate the delays by other pharmaceutical companies,” Draghi
said as he visited Bergamo on Italy’s first remembrance day for
the victims of the coronavirus pandemic.
    “We have already taken incisive decisions regarding the
companies that do not respect the pacts”.
    Italy’s vaccination plan has also been hit by uncertainty about
AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 jab.
    Italy and several other European countries suspended use of the
AstraZeneca jab pending confirmation from the European Medicines
Agency that it is safe and does not cause blood clots.
    Draghi said Italy’s campaign will go forward no matter what the
EMA decides.
    “As you know well, the government is committed to doing the
greatest number of vaccines possible in the shortest possible
time,” Draghi said.
    “This is our priority.
    “The suspension of the AstraZeneca vaccine along with many other
European countries, which came into force on Monday, was a
temporary and precautional decision.
    “The European Medicines Agency will give is final opinion today.
    “Whatever it decides, the vaccination campaign will continue
with the same intensity and with the same aims”. (ANSA).
