Vaccines and DJ set in Italy – 1000 seats booked in 3 minutes

A thousand young people attended the first night-time vaccination Open-Day, in Turin (IT), till the early hours of Sunday morning listening to a DJ set.

In Italy, Millenials had the chance to break curfew rules for the first time, as they were allowed to get their first vaccine dose until 3 am whilst listening to the tunes of a DJ set.

A thousand vaccines were made available for a thousand 18-28 year-olds who could attend a special vaccination event at the ‘Reale Mutua Hub in Turin, Piedmont (Italy) for an ‘alternative Saturday night’, the Italian press report.

The initiative, promoted in a collaboration between Italian insurance company ‘Reale Group’, the local and regional governments and the health service (ASL), was a great success as the young people flocked to book the available seats in only three minutes.

Piedmont’s governor Alberto Cirio was confident the format would be replicated elsewhere because of the strong common desire to restart.

The Regional Councilor for Education, Elena Chiorino, was also satisfied and added: 

“Ours is a sign of attention towards young people who, after months of being closed at home, have the chance to start living. We wanted to test this initiative, but if the model works, we plan to repeat it thanks to other sponsors who are supporting our proposal.”

Meanwhile, the Italian governments announced that outdoor clubs and events could go-ahead from the 1st of July, thanks to the ‘Green Pass’ COVID status certification system implementation across the EU block.

With the EU now setting a positive precedent for allowing indoor hospitality to recommence, could we possibly see this strategy adopted by neighbouring regions? We hope so. We miss sweaty dance floors and loud music!
