It is up to you: whoever has not been vaccinated, do so as soon as possible and whoever can do it, reserve the third dose, “Berlusconi wrote on social networks along with a video in which he sees how they are vaccinated and makes the sign of victory.
For Berlusconi, who contracted the virus in September 2020, it is the second inoculation, because as infected only needed one dose for immunization.
While the three-time president of the Italian Government was vaccinated, the media assured that he is preparing his career to try to be head of state, when Sergio Mattarella’s seven-year term ends in February.

On February 3, the mandate of Mattarella, who has already reiterated that he is not willing to run for a second term, which has opened a period of uncertainty and political wars, since all pointed as his successor to Mario Draghi, the current president of the Government chosen precisely to promote a reform process with which to get the country out of the crisis derived from the pandemic.
The possibility of being able to repeat a mandate, as it already happened with Giorgio Napolitano in 2015 when he agreed to repeat the seven-year term at a time of political blockade, or at least one more year, it would have allowed Draghi to reach the end of the legislature in 2022 and conclude the process of reforms linked to the aid of the European Recovery Plan, and later think about being able to be elected head of state.
But if Draghi is finally indicated to occupy the Quirinal Palace, headquarters of the headquarters, that would inevitably lead to having to call early elections.
For this reason, at the moment there are no possible candidates capable of putting the parliamentary forces in agreement, while Berlusconi cherish the dream of your career.
