Poste Italiane, online booking for anti-covid vaccines in Sicily for over 80s is underway
The Sicily is the first region of Italy to start the online booking of the anticovid vaccine, prepared by the National Commissioner Structure for the pandemic emergency and implemented by Italian post. Starting from 10.00 of Monday 8 February, in fact, Sicilian citizens with more than 80 years old, including all those belonging to the class of 1941, will be able to access the booking form.vaccinicovid.gov.it which will also be accessible through the website of the Sicilian Region, the portal siciliacoronavirus.it and all the sites of the companies of the regional health system.
In recent days, the IT technicians of the Health Department completed the process of aligning the information (between vaccination points in hospitals, vaccine availability and the Sicilian population) with the Poste Italiane database to allow for the preparation of booking slots. From Monday it will therefore be possible to access the online system that will allow you to choose the Sicilian vaccination center closer and then determine the appointment for administration. For the reservation, in addition to personal data, the system will also request the health card.
In addition to the online platform, it will be possible to book through a dedicated call center, by calling the toll-free number 800.009.966 active from Monday to Friday from 9 to 18 (excluding Saturdays and holidays)
“With the vaccination of Sicilians up to the class of 1941 – said the president of the Region Nello Musumeci – a new phase of the Coronavirus contrast season begins. Together with other Regions, we have chosen to join the IT and logistics project of the structure of the National Commissioner for Emergency and we are particularly proud to be the first in Italy in this service.“.
The regional government plans to start the first vaccinations on citizens over 80 anni from next February 20, while from March 1 the home campaign aimed at Sicilians – of this same target – who cannot autonomously reach the vaccination centers will start.
The platform, in addition to being a service for citizens, it is a tool capable of supporting the activity of vaccination centers through a ‘dashboard’, that is a data visualization and monitoring system, and a help desk dedicated to the operators of the Centers, also offering assistance in the storage and distribution of these drugs.
“Poste Italiane has made available its skills, its logistics and IT structures to contribute to the realization of an unprecedented vaccination campaign – declared theCEO of Poste Italiane Matteo Del Fante – The vaccination, when it is open to all those who request it after the first phase dedicated to protected categories, can be booked not only online and through the call center, but directly at ATM Postamat by inserting their health card, or through the palmtops supplied. to postmen“.
The vaccine is free. In Sicily, the citizens who fall into this phase of the over 80 target are about 320mila.
