Super Green Pass: Latest COVID-19 Rules in Italy

Italy COVID rules for Green Pass

The Government of Italy has just published questions and answers on the use of the enhanced green card otherwise being referred to as the Super Green pass. From December 6, 2021, to January 15, 2022, citizens must have a “strengthened” green pass, i.e., a vaccination or healing green pass, designated in the white area to access shows, sporting events, indoor catering, parties, discos, and public ceremonies.

This includes the white, yellow, and orange areas, for those that are or are not allowed with the basic Green pass (also buffer) or without green certification. Those who already have an Italy Green pass for vaccination or recovery do not need to download a new certification. It will be the Verification C19 App used to recognize its validity.

MOVEMENTS

– Public or private scheduled means of transport: planes, trains, ships and ferries; buses and scheduled coaches that connect more than two regions; buses and coaches used for rental services with driver, vehicles used in local or regional public transport services. Regardless of the color of the region, the use of the Green pass is always mandatory, which can be either “basic” (vaccination, healing, swab) or reinforced (vaccination and healing).

– Non-scheduled public transport vehicles: taxis and cars with up to nine seats, including the driver’s, used as a rental service with driver, with the exception of those in additional local public transport services (to which the regulations relating to use of local public transport lines).

“No fourth dose but an annual recall will be needed,” says the Director of Spallanzani.

On the vaccination obligation, Francesco Vaia argues that “we must convince people, not scare them: science feeds on doubt, tolerance, and empiricism.”

AGI – An annual recall will be necessary with vaccines updated to the variants, exactly as for the anti-influenza: This is explained by the general director and medical director of the Spallanzani hospital in Rome, Francesco Vaia, in an interview with Il Fatto Daily. So not a real fourth dose: “I remain convinced that we have to imagine overcoming the emergency. And, as for the flu, do an annual booster with vaccines that are however updated to the variants.”

As for Omicron, “the data coming from South Africa do not justify alarmism,” explained Vaia. The annual vaccination “must not be a drama and we must adopt measures that make families our allies, not scare them,” he stressed, “with a smile and common sense. We will get out of it, here we are.”

On the vaccination obligation, Vaia argues: “The data are incontrovertible: infected, deaths, hospitalizations, especially the serious ones, are absolutely far below the same period last year and this is due to the correct attitude of the citizens and the vaccine.”
