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.

Which are Italy’s best hospitals and where are they?

Italy’s healthcare system is said to be among the best in the world, but stark regional differences persist. Here’s where you’ll find the country’s most highly-rated hospitals.

Which are Italy’s best hospitals and where are they?

The average standard of healthcare in Italy is fairly high: the country has been ranked among the nations with the best healthcare systems in the world in surveys published by the World Health Organisation, Bloomberg and Statista.

But not all of Italy’s hospitals – or regional healthcare systems – are rated equally. A new World’s Best Hospitals ranking from Newsweek and global data firm Statista has revealed which of Italy’s hospitals are seen as the best.

The study ranked Rome’s Policlinico Gemelli as the best hospital in the country for the third year in a row, followed by Ospedale Niguarda and Ospedale San Raffaele in Milan.

The top five was completed by Policlinico Sant’Orsola in Bologna and the Istituto Humanitas in Rozzano, just south of Milan.

Spots from six to ten are occupied by: Policlinico San Matteo in Pavia, Azienda Ospedaliera in Padua, Ospedale Borgo Trento in Verona, Ospedale Papa Giovanni II in Bergamo and Turin’s Presidio Ospedaliero Molinette.

But aside from Rome’s Policlinico Gemelli, no hospital from the centre or south of the country figured in the top ten, with the first ‘non-northern’ hospital – Florence’s Ospedale Careggi – ranking 13th.

In fact, only three southern hospitals made it into the nation’s top 50, with the first one – Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza in San Giovanni Rotondo, Puglia – coming in 33rd.

These results seem to once again confirm the stark imbalances in the quality of medical services offered across the country, with central and southern regions continuing to perform poorly compared to their northern counterparts.

Shifting from a national outlook to an international one, Italian hospitals didn’t fare quite as well as could be hoped.

The top five Italian hospitals all figured among the best 100 hospitals in the world, though only Rome’s Policlinico Gemelli made it into the top 50 (it came in 38th, to be exact).

However, Italy still had a total of 13 hospitals included in the world’s top 250 list, which made it the third most-represented European country in the ranking after Germany (25) and France (16).

Statista assessed the performance of over 2,300 hospitals around the world, basing its ranking upon a combination of the following four data sources: the opinion of over 80,000 healthcare professionals, patient experience surveys following hospitalisation, publicly available hospital quality metrics, and patient perception questionnaires.
