Coronavirus, when Piedmontese between 16 and 49 years old can book the vaccine: the dates

Piedmont has officially announced the dates on which reservations will open for Piedmontese between the ages of 16 and 49 who, to date, cannot yet pre-access the vaccination campaign.

The Piedmontese Health Councilor Luigi Icardi announced that over two million doses should arrive in June. “If this is the case, by the beginning of autumn we will have a significant percentage of the population vaccinated. We currently have a vaccination capacity of over 40,000 doses per day, but with the available vaccines we can do an average of about 30-35,000. doses will arrive but we will be able to double as early as the end of May: we have more than 1000 pharmacies ready, 50 new centers ready to start and 857 companies that have applied for vaccination points. We cannot start them, however, if we do not have vaccines “.

Vaccines by age groups: dates

In anticipation of the arrival of the next doses, Piedmont has drawn up a calendar for opening reservations for citizens who have not been able to register so far. Initially it was expected that the pre-accessions would begin on 25 May for citizens in the 45-49 range and on 1 June for the 40-44 range: the Region however announced that the commissioner structure of General Figliuolo has given the green light for the vaccination of 40-year-olds starting Monday 17 May. Here are the updated dates.

From 17 May: 45-49 age group
From 21 May: 40-44 age group
From 8 June: age range 30-39
From 15 June: 16-29 age group

From 11 May, registrations for the 50-54 age group are already open. To register, you need to go to the website and follow the procedure: you need a tax code, a health card and a telephone number enabled to receive text messages.

Which vaccine will be given?

It is not possible to know in advance which vaccine will be given, as doses are injected based on availability. However, Piedmont has announced that the doses stored in the AstraZeneca region will be used in minimal part for the first administrations by general practitioners, currently having no news on upcoming deliveries, while most will be kept for the 227 thousand recalls that are already planned for the end of June.

The doses of Johnson & Johnson will also be mainly intended for general practitioners, while Asl and vaccination centers will mainly use Pfizer and Moderna.

How to know the vaccine date

Thanks to the new vaccination memorandum available on the website it is possible to know, from the day after pre-accession, the indicative date on which you will be vaccinated. It is possible to access via Spid, or it is necessary to know the tax code and the health card number of the person who made the pre-accession: you will receive a code via text message to be able to log in.

A whole Italy is foreseeable from Monday yellow, with the sole exception of the Valle d’Aosta. Except for surprises, the trend of the contagion and the collapse of new positive cases and hospitalizations, will allow for a relaxation of containment measures. However, a knot remains: the current color system and the weight that RT has in the calculation of risk levels, represents a constant sword of Damocles that could drag many regions to orange, even in the face of deviations in the number of unimportant cases . Let me be clear: already today the transmission index is not a decision without appeal that brings you in orange if you are above 1 or in red if you are above 1.25. The color assignment system also includes other parameters, such as occupied beds or incidence. But without timely corrections, the burden of RT will be excessive in this phase of the epidemic.

Pfizer: «Vaccine recommended for booster at 21 days, stick to studies». Regions at risk plans

The summit

This morning there will be a summit between the government and the Regions, which will come up with a proposal for modification. On the one hand, they will make a concession to the need to keep their guard up: today the alert is triggered if for patients Covid the filling percentage of medical departments is over 40 percent, of intensive care over 30 percent; in the new protocol drawn up by the Regions, the indices drop to 30 and 20. If we stopped here, it would be easier for a Region to finish in red or orange. But the proposal also includes incidence (ie the number of new positive cases per hundred thousand inhabitants on a weekly basis) as a reference element. There will be three risk bands and the higher level will trigger when we are faced with an incidence that exceeds 150. The intermediate risk is between 50 and 150. The low risk is below 50. To understand, taking as a reference point the data from last week (which, however, have dropped in the last few days): 17 regions would be at intermediate risk (but that number will be higher already on Friday, when the new report will be released). Another element that will define the formula will also be the percentage of diffusion of the vaccine in each Region. Professor Massimo Clementi, director of the Laboratory of Microbiology and Virology of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan observes: “In this new scenario in which we are entering with the progress of mass vaccination, the contagion index Rt is a parameter whose importance should be downsized ».

In the first phase of the epidemic, a massive spread of the virus presented a certain and dramatic account in terms of hospitalizations and deaths. Today, with 17 million Italians who have received at least one dose and a substantial portion of those over 70 protected, the virus circulates among subjects whose risk of death and hospitalization is lower. For this reason, the system that triggers the alarm must be reviewed. Even if all the experts agree: the calculation of the RT will remain useful to monitor the circulation of the virus and signal, for example, the arrival of a variant that leads to a sudden acceleration of the infection. The Councilor for Health of Emilia-Romagna, Raffaele Donini, coordinator of the Health Commission of the Conference of the Regions, concludes: «The discussion with the government will continue even in these hours. The decision parameters must be changed. But we have to complete the comparison for Friday, the new parameters will already have to be known to decide the next colors ».

Better a low immune response than none | Health city Berlin

Researchers from Israel report that MS patients taking fingolimod and ocrelizumab do not have an adequate vaccination response. Experts from the Competence Network Multiple Sclerosis do not share the concerns. They advise vaccination.

A publication from Israel is causing a sensation in neurological circles. Anat Achiron’s group recently published a study according to which there is no or insufficient vaccination response to fingolimod and ocrelizumab. This is justified by the ELISA measurement with antibodies against the recombinantly produced spike protein of SARS CoV 2. The publication also gives extensive treatment and conversion recommendations for patients with multiple sclerosis.

Competence Network MS strongly recommends vaccination

The Disease-Related Competence Network Multiple Sclerosis (KKMS) does not share the concern that, particularly in the case of treatment with S1P modulators, there may be no vaccination protection.

“In the vaccination recommendation of the KKNMS, we have already stated that with the vaccines against SARS CoV 2 currently on the market – as with other vaccinations – a reduced immune response could occur with certain drugs, but are generally strongly advised to vaccinate against SARS CoV2 becomes ”, says KKNMS board member Prof. Zipp, director of the clinic and polyclinic for neurology, Mainz. “Even reduced protection is important and better than no protection,” says Zipp.

France recommends a third vaccination for MS patients

As far as the flu vaccination is concerned, it is known that the immune reaction is reduced under both ocrelizumab and S1P modulators, but is definitely present. For this reason, certain intervals between the last or first (before the initiation of a new) drug administration are currently recommended for all vaccinations and for SARS CoV2 immunization. In France, it is already recommended that transplant recipients and immunosuppressed patients receive a third dose of an mRNA vaccine 3 to 4 weeks after the second.

Immune response more diverse than measurable antibodies

“Basically, we now know that the immune response to a SARS CoV 2 infection can be varied, antibodies as well as B and T cells are involved,” says KKNMS spokesman Prof Wiendl. According to the findings to date, there was a rather low correlation between antibody and cellular immune responses. The measurement of antibody responses after vaccination does not fully depict the competence of the immune response against SARS CoV2. The neurologist emphasizes that the clinical vaccination response was not investigated in the Israeli work.

The KKNMS does not recommend an active change in therapy or a delayed start of therapy in patients with highly active MS due to concerns about the vaccination or vaccination response.

If I had covid, can I do physical exercise as before?

To do or not do sports after having overcome a Covid-19 picture is a question that has probably been asked by those who have suffered the infection.

In the first place, it will depend on the sequelae left by the disease. The correct thing is to review and check how we are, what is the starting level.

While there are people who fell ill, have been cured and have no sequelae, others do. Some of them derive directly from infection. Others, however, are given by the long time spent standing.

Studies estimate that 80% of patients developed one or more long-term symptoms. So far, the five most common symptoms they are fatigue (58%), headache (44%), attention disorder (27%), hair loss (25%), and dyspnea (24%).

From the medical point of view and from the specialist in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, we have to think that this virus, SARS-CoV-2, enters through the respiratory tract and produces generalized inflammation. With this, it provokes difficulty in oxygenation. Along with concern for the state of health, the psychological aspect represents the second of the keys to these long-term symptoms.

Now, we must not forget that we have the ideal medicine to contribute to its improvement: physical activity.

The cardiological and pulmonary sequelae are among the most worrying. Photo Shutterstock.

What benefits does physical activity bring in this context?

Physical activity helps reduce inflammation through muscle secreted myokines. Be careful, not with intense exercise, but moderate.

In addition, it will improve respiratory (ventilation, diffusion, transport and perfusion of gases), cardiovascular and neuromuscular capacity. It will also help to accelerate the metabolism and strengthen the capacity for attention, concentration and our psychology, strengthening our confidence in ourselves.

Returning to the question that brings us here: can we exercise again as before after overcoming a Covid-19 picture? Of course yes. I even dare to say better. After all, if you are curious, you will rationally improve your knowledge of how to do it. With this, also your ability levels, if you need it and want it.

If we have been resting for a long time, it is very likely that the doctors will prescribe work with the rehabilitators and physiotherapists. At least until you regain some basic levels of strength, coordination, and breathing. From this moment on, they will leave you autonomy and will prescribe “physical activity”.

They advise coming back with a personalized plan.  Photo Shutterstock.

They advise coming back with a personalized plan. Photo Shutterstock.

What physical sequence should we follow?

After overcoming the infection, it is usual for the healthcare professional to provide a report advising what kind of activity to do. But above all, what is NOT recommended, as it could aggravate health conditions. All this, accompanied by the appropriate medication.

It is convenient that with this report we go to the instructor to make us a custom plan.

My first advice as a doctor and technician in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences: do not do physical activity alone. At least until all the aftermath has worn off. Even so, carry a phone with you, in case you need to quickly report any incident.

You do not need to be physically active around the hospital, as many patients do after a heart attack, for fear of what may happen. Yes indeed, you must be cautious.

Once the medical report is known, with which we have already checked the risk factors, the expert will make an initial evaluation on the possible physical activity. For example, which is the most suitable in your specific case.

For that, it is important to know some data. What physical activity and at what level did this person practice it before the illness? What are your sports preferences? What materials or facilities do you have? How much time can you spend on it?

You will then decide the tests of endurance, strength, flexibility and coordination to manage. In this way, it will be possible for you to know your current state of physical condition and ability.

Once he is aware of his current state, the sports technician will carry out a planning of progressive work to go improving the different capacities up to the level that both determine.

For the person who (re) trains, it is essential to become aware of their own body, your feelings, which must be good.

Important: We should never do this type of physical work with a fever. This, as we know, consists of an increase in temperature as a result of the body’s fight against damage. Physical exercise also increases the temperature with the risk of producing significant damage and is an indicator that something is not working.

If you are unwell, you should not force the situation. The ideal is to rest and check what happens. Physical activity should not be done with pain or discomfort. Let’s seek the pleasure of exercise, the endorphins that are secreted when practicing it will help us to do so.

If possible, it will work daily. In three months they will re-evaluate us physically, while we continue in parallel with the medical follow-up.

Therefore, wisely and smooth and progressive workIn the long term, we will surely have that desired physical level again. In addition, those annoying symptoms produced by Covid-19 will disappear.

Remember, a sedentary lifestyle increases the mortality of hospitalized Covid-19 patients. It is very possible that, if you were an active person, this has protected you. Regardless of how we are physically, avoid losing capacity and seek continuous improvement.

So, enjoy! And protect yourself with this good medicine: physical activity.

AstraZeneca, waste and unused doses are growing. Second legal action by the EU, what is happening

Mess AstraZeneca, Europe will not renew the contract for the supply of the British anti Covid vaccine, announces a second legal action, while over 200 million doses have yet to arrive and hundreds of thousands remain in European refrigerators unused. As in Italy where the problem of intonse vials arises. To the point that the deputy minister this morning Pierpaolo Sileri proposes to widen the mesh of administration. For the AstraZeneca vaccine “it was indicated to administer it over the age of 60, I would also open to the male population under 60, until progressive exhaustion of stocks“. This was stated by the Undersecretary of Health, Pierpaolo Sileri, on RaiNews24. “In February-March, I would not have put the restriction at 60, but I would have put it lower – he added – if we had expanded the audience in February we would have limited the damage among the elderly”.

Rome, Astrazeneca, open day on the weekend. Vaccines, when it’s up to young people: two shifts for 40-year-olds, then open lists

Meanwhile lhe EU Commission has launched a second legal action against AstraZeneca. “We ask AstraZeneca for delivery by June of the 90 million doses that should have arrived at the end of the first quarter, given that we have received only 30 out of 120”, an EU spokesman announced, underlining that according to Brussels “the company has not respected the obligations of the contract “.

AstraZeneca, second dose: this is what happens (after the EU stop) to those who have to do it. Contract in effect until delivery of the last vial

The doubts about the side effects of AstraZeneca (statistically very rare events), the European decision on the contract have ended up scarring the vaccine with suspicions and ambiguities that they have produced, and are producing disastrous effects on the vaccination campaign; because there is now a lot, too much, skepticism about the British vaccine.

Default – “The contract – explains a spokesman for the European Executive – remains in force until the delivery of the last dose”. There will therefore be no postponements or interruptions but the message of a stop, or in any case of wanting to close relations with this pharmaceutical company, has passed. The planned doses of AstraZeneca will still be delivered until the agreement expires. Why the contract decision? The company has not respected its contractual commitments (egregious delays in deliveries) and for this reason the Commission has also initiated two legal actions. The goal of producing 150 million doses per month has been postponed to the fourth quarter of 2021. AstraZeneca only reached the target of deliveries to EU member countries that it had announced for January of 50 million doses on 7 May; the initial goal for June 30, now science fiction, was equal to 300 million doses, revised in March to 100 million.

Distrust – Failure to renew, chosen halfway between a political and commercial evaluation, led to further distrust of the Vaxzevria vaccine on the part of European citizens. “Some regions have administered much less doses than others, in Sicily for example we are at 51%. Now the fact that the contract by the EU will not be renewed could lead to further reluctance on the part of people to make this vaccine “, the president of the Gimbe Foundation commented yesterday. Nino Cartabellotta, to the microphones of the broadcast “L’Italia s’è desta” on Radio Cusano Campus.

Pfizer, what changes in Rome: 100 thousand seats are freed up and reservations reopen

Pregliasco – And this morning, during the same transmission, the virologist too Fabrizio Pregliasco expresses the same thought: «Unfortunately, there have always been negativities towards vaccines. At this moment we are going to nitpick with respect to adverse events, rather than considering the complexity and risk associated with Covid. The fact that Britain has vaccinated almost the entire population with the Astrazeneca vaccine is a confirmation. I hope that the EU decision is more linked to commercial aspects, because Astrazeneca has not respected the agreements ». “Communication – he stressed – so cacophonous, diversified, with this excessive highlighting of adverse events has terrified people, now the omelette is done”.

Norway says no – An expert committee was set up by the Norwegian government to rule on AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson’s Covid vaccines. This committee recommended giving it up due to the risk of rare but serious side effects. “We do not recommend the use of adenoviral vaccines in the national immunization program,” said committee head Lars Vorland, delivering his report to Health Minister Bent Hoie. “The cause is the severe side effects” seen in a small percentage of people who have been given the vaccines, the doctor added. Hoie has not yet disclosed the government’s position. Norway had suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine to study its rare but potentially serious side effects; later also by Johnson & Johnson. “If we decide to give up on these vaccines forever, they won’t go to waste. They will be given to other countries, ”Hoie said.

AstraZeneca and Johnson, Norway towards the stop: “Rare but serious side effects”

Greece against the tide – The EU’s decision not to renew the contract with AstraZeneca and the climate of insecurity surrounding the vaccine devised in Oxford will cost thousands of lives in Europe, a Greek expert said. «This particular EU decision and all the communication hustle and bustle will cost, in my opinion, thousands of lives of European citizens, and at some point, a European or international prosecutor will have to look for those responsible.», said the professor of pulmonology Nikos Tzanakis to the Greek television channel MEGA. Greece is among the countries that have not restricted the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine. Tzanakis said the fuss surrounding AstraZeneca’s vaccine derailed national vaccination programs as many European citizens canceled their reservations. «This means infections, deaths. It will cost lives in the face of an infinitesimal possibility of a controversial complication», said Professor Tzanakis who cited the United Kingdom as an example, a country with «huge experience» in public health policy and which based its vaccination campaign above all on the AstraZeneca preparation. Yesterday, we recall, that in the United Kingdom there were zero new coronavirus infections. Can this be considered a success attributable to the massive immunization achieved with AstraZeneca? Yes (see the parable of the contagion curve in the United Kingdom that appears in the graph below).

Use (and underuse) – The administrations of the AstraZeneca vaccine in Italy seem to be fluctuating, hovering between waste, rushes to book the Pfizer considered safer, skepticism as we have seen, and then, on the contrary, also the desire to get vaccinated as soon as possible and therefore joining the sporadic Open days set up by various ASLs around Italy. To date, we know that 79% of the more than six million AstraZenena doses (6,668,880 to be precise) have been administered. In the report released by the government there are data on the progress of the vaccination campaign divided by weeks. In the current week (which runs until May 16), the data on the use of Vaxzevria tells us that there is a ratio of almost 105 thousand doses administered to just under 420 thousand (the data is being updated, since the week has just begun ). Mistrust is perceived in the data relating to the previous week. From 3 to 9 May, 733 thousand doses were administered out of over 3.2 million total doses available (therefore also including the other vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna and J&J) compared to approximately 2.1 million Pfizer doses administered.

The Johnson vaccine? It goes slowly, too. Out of 342,800 delivered doses, 178,573 single-dose vials were administered, that is 52%. To understand: Pfizer travels on 96% utilization of the doses delivered.

The most skeptical regions – Here are the data as of May 9, 2021. Among the regions that have shown most of all to put doubts on AstraZeneca in front of the urgent need to be protected from Covid infection is Lombardy which has so far used 94% of AstraZeneca doses available and 96% of Pfizer vials. Molise injected 95% of the AstraZeneca vials, Umbria 91%, Veneto 86%. Among the skeptical regions are the territories of the South.

Sicily: 523,800 doses delivered and 280,869 used (54% versus Pfizer’s 94%)

Basilicata: 63,600 doses delivered and 38,798 used (61% versus Pfizer’s 100%)

Calabria 201,100 doses delivered and 127,837 used (64% against 93% of Pfizer)

so we start again (with the recall to 35 days)

The announcement came like a bolt from the blue for those who were already planning to close the vaccination chapter within a month with Pfizer. Yesterday, in fact, the anti-Covid regional crisis unit announced that “starting from Monday 17 May, the calls of the Pfizer vaccine will be extended to 5 weeks, or 35 days”.

In practice, those who, from May 17, already had an appointment for the second dose of the US antidote, will see the injection postponed by two weeks, always in the same place and at the same time. The move will make it possible to immediately recover one hundred thousand Pfizer slots to which the age groups for which the windows are opening in this period can also be booked, even if it will be necessary to wait a few more days for delivery.

Vaccines, 3 million doses coming (mainly Pfizer). Contagions in decline, the Rt index changes

On Monday, moreover, a few hours before the start of reservations for 54-55 year olds, the Region had declared Pfizer sold out in May, compared to another hundred thousand slots available for Astrazeneca and Johnson & Johnson in respect of which, after the decisions fluctuating on recommendations and suspensions, however, there is mistrust, especially by women who fear thromboembolic events related to a younger age and to the possible intake of contraceptive pills.

«In general – says Pier Luigi Bartoletti, president of Fimmg Rome, Italian Federation of general practitioners – it is always necessary to make a careful analysis of the relationship between risks and benefits also in relation to age. When the latter are superior there is no doubt that it is better to get vaccinated. There is a lot of distrust towards AstraZeneca and, of course, those who can choose other consider the option. When I tell my patients that there is Astrazeneca, they look at me badly. But it is also true that in England Az has been used on millions of people effectively and without problems, so in the end they are convinced ».

Pfizer, recall in Lazio passes from 3 to 5 weeks: what changes for bookings

The audience of those affected by the Pfizer slip will be notified in advance via SMS. To many, the “cancellation” has already appeared automatically on the booking portal, which led many people yesterday to clog up the switchboards of the Region. In a vaccination campaign in which people used to proceed with an almost surprising precision, the announcement generated some perplexity. The most concerned are the fragile, those most debilitated and exposed categories who, finally, had managed to get the first dose and who are now afraid of extending the time of immunization, essential to protect them from the virus which, in the presence of certain pathological could have dire consequences. Yesterday, the crisis unit of the Health Councilor Alessio D’Amato, made it clear that the postponement took place “by acknowledging the recommendations of the Technical Scientific Committee (Cts) and the Commissioner Structure” thus determining “An increase in population coverage”.

But the shift, let the Region know, will take place net of any specific and peculiar medical assessments: if there are particularly vulnerable and debilitated patients, then it will proceed in a shorter time.

Covid vaccine, can I get infected after doing it? Symptoms, should I take a tampon? All the answers

This taking into account the indications of the Aifa, the Italian drug agency that gives complete immunization from Pfizer one week after the second dose (that of Moderna 14 days after the second dose, while the more immediate would be the effectiveness of the most ” snubbed “Johnson & Jonhson – 14 days after the single dose – and Astrazeneca – 14 days after the second dose but with protection starting 21 days after the first). For Astrazeneca, the Region will propose open days in the major vaccination hubs, there are 220 thousand doses of the vaccine to be disposed of in regional refrigerators, only half scheduled. No changes, at the moment, will affect all the other vaccines. By way of example, those who had to call Pfizer on May 17th will always do so in the same place and at the same time on May 31st and so on.
Yesterday, in Lazio, the quota of 2 million and 350 thousand administrations was exceeded and over 765 thousand people have completed the vaccination cycle. «Out of over 11 thousand tampons and 4 thousand antigenic – said D’Amato – we recorded 680 positive cases (-108), 17 deaths (+7) and +1.463 those recovered. Cases are decreasing, while deaths, hospitalizations and intensive care are increasing.

How to get vaccinated against Covid-19 in New York? – Travel – Life

New York is very close to being the city that never sleeps again. Recently, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the total reopening of the city for July 1 and, although there is still more than a month to go, the capital of the world is already resuming its fast pace and the streets are beginning to fill with tourists of all the world.

(Related topic: These are the plans offered by vaccination tourism to the US)

This is due, in large part, to the other announcement that the president made about offering vaccines to tourists who visit attractions and emblematic places such as Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge or Central Park.

“This summer, tourism will come alive again in New York City and many jobs will be recovered as a result. We want to go the extra mile, make it easy for tourists,” he said. “If they’re here, get them vaccinated while they’re here. It makes sense to put mobile vaccination posts where the tourists are.”

(Do not miss: Neither ‘pandemials’ nor quarantines: it is the generation flexible to change)

The measure is already being implemented in the city. For example, from May 12 to 16, initially in some subway stations such as Penn Station and Grand Central, there will be free vaccination posts of a single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine, according to the governor of this state, Andrew Cuomo. “We are going to test what happens … We will see the receptivity and adjust it if necessary,” he told a news conference.

However, according to my experience added to that of other tourists, in different parts of Manhattan it is already possible to get the vaccine. In my case, the same day that I arrived in New York, in the afternoon, I went to the city’s vaccine location website

When I entered the zip code of the place of my accommodation, more than 10 vaccination posts located less than a mile appeared. Most said “walk-up” or “walk up vaccination.” They also showed what vaccine they had available so I decided to walk to a drugstore to give it a try.

Upon arrival, the only requirement they asked was to show an identity document, in this case my passport and give the address of my accommodation in the United States. What vaccine do you want? The woman at the check-in point asked. After 10 minutes they had already vaccinated me and with the vaccine that I chose. It was an easy, fast and cost-free process.

Most city centers are open to walk-ins. On the other hand, according to several local media, the city is offering incentives to promote the immunization campaign such as free subway or train rides or tickets to tourist places such as museums due to the number of Americans who get vaccinated against covid- 19 has dropped in recent weeks, and New York is no exception.

What to keep in mind if you are going to be vaccinated:

“If they’re here, get them vaccinated while they’re here. It makes sense to put mobile vaccination posts where the tourists are.”

1. Budget

My first suggestion is that you consider your budget. The announcements of the American authorities to vaccinate tourists has boosted the demand for air tickets to New York and other destinations in the United States such as Miami. On the other hand, depending on the area of ​​Manhattan, there are hotels with more favorable prices than others, such as those located near Wall Street. Also, do not forget to add to your budget the costs of the Covid-19 tests to leave or enter the country and the transfers to and from the airport. On the other hand, international insurance is highly recommended.

(See: He took a photo on a walk and it has earned him more than 45 million pesos)

2. Vaccinations without an appointment

As mentioned above, most New York City vaccination posts are open for walk-ins. The only essential requirement is a physical identity document. That is to say that in the case of tourists it must be the passport. Be sure to check the location of the vaccination centers, if they have any other requirements, and the hours they are open to the public.

3. Choose the type of vaccine

Unlike a few weeks ago, at this time in some places in the Big Apple it is possible to choose the type of vaccine. Keep in mind that tourists are offering the Johnson & Johnson which is a single dose. But there are cases of tourists who have opted for the Moderna or the Pfizer and have had to stay long enough or return to the United States for the second dose.

4. Time for post-vaccination rest

Although each organism may or may not have different side effects, vaccination posts recommend rest after being vaccinated. Once it is put on, you should wait 15 minutes in place to make sure it feels right. Afterwards, it is also recommended to rest. Keep the above in mind in case your trip itinerary includes going to tourist places or if the priority of the trip is the vaccine.

5. Continue with security protocols

Remember that your body needs time to develop protection after any vaccination, so it is important to continue to take care of yourself and others with mask use and social distancing.
