The first parents with their children arrived, by appointment, in the afternoon at the opening of the temporary clinic, made available by Metro 5 with the collaboration of Atm, to the Buzzi Foundation.

Every hour, 8 children are vaccinated by the trainees of the Faculty of Medicine of the State University of Milan, for a total of 40 every afternoon.

“There was a minimum delay, of 15-20 days on vaccines, this is not the problem but rather that this year, for the first time, we are going to vaccinate a really important number of children”- said Gian Vincenzo Zuccotti, director in charge of Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Department of the Buzzi hospital in Milan.

Usually the flu vaccination was reserved for children with chronic diseases, so they were very limited. Here only in the City of Milan, in the metropolitan area we are talking about 140,000 children in this age group to be vaccinated, so having had three weeks instead of two could certainly help us.
