Luca Rivolti, 21, is the first volunteer who tested the vaccine against COVID-19 developed by Takis and Rottapharm biotech. The clinical trial has just started at the San Gerardo hospital in Monza and Luca was the first of 80 healthy volunteers who will be vaccinated in the coming weeks / months. He has had no significant side effects so far and will receive the second dose of the vaccine by the end of March.

We thank him and all the volunteers for their valuable contribution to the Italian fight against the pandemic.
