A few more weeks for some, days for others and the 2022-2022 school year will begin. Among the novelties of this year the new law on the obligation of vaccinations.

But how does it work region by region? Not all behave in the same way: there are some who have sent emails or letters to families, others who have organized home checks and still others who have established referrals.

The provision of the Guarantor for privacy on the processing of data

From today, 1 September 2022, schools and educational services for children will be able to transmit the lists of members of the ASL competent for verifying vaccination regularity, without adding bureaucratic burdens to families and public administration. It is a urgent measure, created to allow data processing that is not provided for by the legislation on vaccines until before 2022, issued after the request of Tuscany.

Here are the provisions of the Del Paesene regions: how to behave, what happens, what to expect or where to find out.

Val d'Aosta

Parents of minors up to 16 years of age will receive from the health company the certificates of vaccinations to be presented at school. Those who are not in order must contact the local health authority, which will invite the family to a meeting in order to regularize the situation. For more information, read the Ausl website.


The Region has already sent letters to the 'non-compliant' families with appointments to get the missing vaccines, which must be brought to school.


Families whose children are already in good standing will not receive any communication: parents will only have to fill in a self-certification to be delivered at school. The form is on the website of the Piedmont Region and at the sites of the individual territorial Asl. For info: Piedmont Region.



By 10 September, letters certifying compliance with vaccines will be sent to families with children up to 6 years of age. A meeting has been set for 10 September for families not in good standing. Subsequently, the Region will take care of children of compulsory school age. For more information, consult the site of the reference local health authority of Liguria.


The Region has established an extension of 40 days for children up to 6 years. From 11 September, schools have 10 days to solicit non-compliant families.
