Ecco le immagini dei baby vaccinati, orgogliosi di difendersi dal Covid

Parte la campagna vaccinale ‘baby’ per i bambini più piccoli dai 5 agli 11 anni, con il Lazio che fa da apripista. Ieri si sono vaccinati i primi 70. E oggi anche le altre Regioni hanno iniziato a immunizzare i più piccoli. Solo in Valle d’Aosta le somministrazioni inizieranno il 20 dicembre ed in Alto Adige il 18. Sono già decine di migliaia in tutta Italia le prenotazioni da parte delle famiglie. Solo il Lazio ne conta 40mila. I pediatri rinnovano l’invito a immunizzare i bimbi ribadendo che il vaccino è sicuro e protegge da conseguenze gravi legate al Covid-19, rilevate anche in questa fascia d’età. Ai bambini, con priorità a quelli più fragili per particolari patologie, si somministrerà il vaccino di Pfizer-BioNTech con un dosaggio pediatrico pari ad un terzo di quello previsto per la popolazione sopra i 12 anni, con una seconda dose a distanza di tre settimane.

La campagna ‘baby’ sta entrando dunque nel vivo. Chiaro il messaggio del presidente del Consiglio superiore di sanità Franco Locatelli: “I dati che ci arrivano da paesi, come gli Usa, dove sono già stati vaccinati milioni di bambini, non mostrano alcun profilo di allerta per quanto riguarda il profilo di sicurezza e non ci sono state neppure evidenze di casi di miocardite e pericardite”.

E positive sono le reazioni dei primi piccoli immunizzati a Roma. Ha pensato a Spiderman, uno dei suoi supereroi preferiti, Michele, dieci anni da compiere a fine mese, tra i primi a vaccinarsi nel centro pediatrico Nuovo Regina Margherita, mentre Manfredi, appena 5 anni, ha vinto la paura iniziale grazie ai gadget che gli sono stati regalati. “Speriamo in questo modo di poter passare anche un Natale più tranquillo”, è l’auspicio di Benedetta, mamma del piccolo appassionato di Spiderman.
