Nearly six months into its Covid-19 vaccination campaign, Italy has administered more than 35.8 million doses nationwide and fully immunized some 12.4 million people, according to the Health Ministry’s running tally.

That means nearly 23 percent of the total population over 12 has had all the shots they need.

The programme has picked up speed significantly over the past few weeks, with more than 3 million doses injected every week in May.

Here’s a closer look at the latest official vaccine data from each part of Italy.

Italy began its vaccination rollout by focusing on health workers and the elderly, followed by people with medical conditions that make them especially vulnerable to Covid-19.

It has extended appointments to younger and younger adults, and starting this week has given the go-ahead for regions to open booking to everyone over the age of 12.

Some regions have already begun doing so, and several plan to start vaccinating all groups within weeks.

More than 90 percent of Italy's over-80s have had at least their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the official figures, while over 80 percent are fully vaccinated.

Italy aims to finish vaccinating its oldest residents by the end of June. Its Covid-19 emergency commissioner has urged regional health services not to forget about those in high-risk groups who have not yet had their shots even as they begin offering vaccines to younger people, with local authorities urged to reach out to elderly residents who still haven't booked a jab.

Ultimately Italy plans to offer vaccination on a walk-in basis at pop-up centres around the country.

Vaccination programmes vary by regional health authority. You can find more information about signing up for the jab here.

Italy reports first case of monkeypox

Italy on Thursday reported its first case of monkeypox, joining a number of other European and North American nations in detecting the disease endemic in parts of Africa.

Italy reports first case of monkeypox

Monkeypox was identified in a young adult who had recently returned from the Canary Islands, Rome’s Spallanzani Institute for infectious diseases said.

He is being treated in isolation and is in a reasonable condition, it said in a statement carried by Italian news agencies, adding that two other suspected cases were being investigated.

Alessio D’Amato, health commissioner for the Lazio region that includes Rome, confirmed on social media that it was the country’s first case, adding that the situation was being “constantly monitored”.

Cases of monkeypox have also been detected in Spain and Portugal – where more than 40 possible and verified cases have been reported – as well as Britain, Sweden, the United States and Canada.

The illness has infected thousands of people in parts of Central and Western Africa in recent years, but is rare in Europe and North Africa.

Its symptoms are similar but somewhat milder than smallpox’s: fever, headache, muscle aches, back pain, chills, exhaustion, although it also causes the lymph nodes to swell up.

Within one to three days, the patient develops a rash, often beginning on the face then spreading to other parts of the body. Although most monkeypox cases aren’t serious, studies have shown that one in ten people who contract the disease in Africa die from it.

The World Health Organization on Tuesday said it was coordinating with UK and European health officials over the new outbreaks.
