Covid-19: the challenge of vaccination
“We have more than enough vaccines in stock to be able to vaccinate all those who need to be vaccinated, including those who decide to receive their first injection and all those who need to be boosted.“, he reassured. As a reminder, on November 14, 51.5 million French people had received at least one dose of vaccine, of which 50.4 million had a complete vaccination schedule. Faced with the fifth wave of Covid-19, the government is now relying on the vaccine booster.
Vaccination booster required before January 15
At a press conference given at the beginning of the afternoon, Olivier Véran had already announced the opening of the booster dose to all French people over 18 years old, with a deadline for achieving it reduced from six to five months after the second dose.
From January 15, 2022, this vaccination booster will be mandatory to continue to benefit from the health pass. The measure already concerned those over 65, from December 15.
The minister also announced that the validity of PCR tests would be shortened, from 72 to 24 hours and that the mask would now be mandatory indoors in all places open to the public, even with the health pass. Another novelty: classes will no longer be systematically closed at primary school from the first case of Covid-19.
