Apparently I was one of 730 to get it in Italy. The official role out isn't until today, or so I am told.

Wife and me had our vaccinations last week, a.z. 1st dose. We are both over 60 and thought we might be getting it early as I have heart problems, but apparently not. All over 60s in our region are being done.
It was a very smooth, fast and painless experience in the sports hall of a school about 40 minutes drive.

Basilicata looks to be at the bottom of the league table along with Umbria. They are still doing 70-80 here and they are only 50% of the way through. I wonder if Italians are refusing the AZ?
The UK has bought 60million Pfizer for Autumn. They wont need them here because it will be Autumn when everyone gets the first one.

Lazio has run out of Pfizer since yesterday, same with Moderna. However, there is Astra Zeneca and Johnson and Johnson available. I was to book Johnson and Johnson, but after Denmark stopping the vaccination with it, I will go for Pfizer, when available.

You get a choice? Here we just had to either take what was on offer, or refuse. A lot of Italians where we are were refusing the Astra Zeneca. I had the Johnson and Johnson and have been absolutely fine.

The Veneto opened up bookings yesterday for 50 to 59 year olds. Booking online was easy but no choice of vaccine was given. No mention at all of which vaccine will be given, not on the booking form and not in the confirmation email either.

I think you will find that most regions are doing much the same thing, i.e. you have an 'interview' with a doctor before the vaccination, and he tells you what you should have (though what happens if you disagree, I don't know. I suspect that what as long as you want is not contraindicated, he may well allow it.) For what it's worth, my wife was given Pfizer, I was given AZ (different days, different doctors)

I had my second Pfizer shot on Sunday and OH yesterday - three weeks between first and second. I was fine after the first but had a sore arm for two days after the second. I also felt like I hit a brick wall last night and went to bed very early feeling queasy and tired. Happy to say that after a 12 hour sleep, I feel fine today

What a luxury 12 hours sleep would be. I can't seem to manage 6 consecutive hours these days without waking up from nightmares or for no apparent reason at all.

Here in Verona they’ve started bookings for people in their 40s.

I got a message from the Reg. Veneto pushing my vaccine appointment backwards from May 20th to the 29th. No idea why.
