FILE - A woman walks past a mural depicting a white dove parachuting COVID-19 vaccine vials, posted near the Italian Health Ministry Headquarters in Rome, April 4, 2021.

Italy, an early victim of the pandemic, has a high vaccination rate, but is also seeing numbers edge higher, which experts believe is due to vaccine efficacy wearing off.
