Dance Partner went to get her second Pfizer dose this afternoon; she said there were lots more people there compared to five weeks ago when she had the first dose. Apparently there were lots of young people getting their first dose of AstraZeneca, something which I didn't think we were doing anymore.

The rollout isn't slowing down here though. At all. 600,000 doses given yesterday. Still, there are discussions about requiring a Green Pass to go to entertainment venues or whatever. Fontana in Lombardia is against it because something something privacy and it's obviously not necessary right now to further incentivise people to get vaccinated, but then covid-related things in Lombardy go much better when the people running Lombardy stay out of it and let competent people handle it (e.g. vaccine rollout).

One issue of course is that you can already go to a restaurant, so they're obviously against requiring a Green Pass for something which you can already do without one. However, cases are at 20/100,000/week having doubled from 10 in less than a week (looking at my 7-day average for Lombardy) so we'll be at the 50/100,000/week threshold for Yellow Zone before the end of the month. Unless of course they decide to base it on hospital occupancy (143 in hospital with symptoms plus 30 in the ICU in Lombardy as of yesterday and it's been falling but it's stopped falling; 2 new admissions to the ICU) instead of the case rate because they're morons who've forgotten about that 2-3 week lag.

But an important update is that if you're going to be in a different region than your normal residence for at least 15 days, because of holidays, you can book the vaccine there.
