(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 28 - "The pandemic is not yet behind us. The virus has mutated and is proving to be even more contagious. The more the time of its wide circulation is prolonged, the more frequent and dangerous the changes can be. Only thanks to vaccines we are able to contain it.
The vaccine does not make us invulnerable but greatly reduces the possibility of contracting the virus, its circulation and its risk.
For these reasons, vaccination is a moral and civic duty ".
President Sergio Mattarella said this at the Ventaglio ceremony. (HANDLE).
