(ANSA) – ROME, NOVEMBER 12 – The Defense is at the table to plan the distribution of the vaccine. According to what is learned, as happened with the distribution of medical devices in March, the capabilities of the personnel of the Italian army will be made available. For the distribution of vaccines, ‘ad hoc’ logistics should be envisaged by the Defense, already engaged in missions for long-range logistical support such as international operations. At the moment, as is already the case in Milan for the flu vaccine, the hypothesis that the military can also be used to administer the doses is not excluded.
Today the emergency commissioner, Domenico Arcuri, had announced the arrival of the first doses of the anti-covid vaccine for 1.7 million Italians at the end of next January. At the moment, a plan for distribution and administration is underway in which defense experts would be involved, among others, to take care of the logistical aspects, which could also include the preparation of vaccination points.
