Almost two years after their arrival, vaccines against the COVVI-19 are no longer a reflex for a majority of French people, as weariness seems to have settled in the spirits after two years to live according to the circulation of virus. Even if the Minister of Health, François Braun, and government spokesman Olivier Véran called the French eligible to vaccinate, this fall campaign did not benefit from a communication as important as the previous ones. The arrival of new vaccines and the application of multiple eligibility rules have also complicated readability.

relatives of people at risk are eligible

The vaccination campaign launched on October 3 lists the populations most at risk of developing serious forms of COVID-19, as well as the flu in a seasonal way:

  • People aged 60 and over;
  • Residents of accommodation establishments for dependent elderly people (EHPAD) and long -term care units;
  • Immunode -depressed people;
  • Pregnant women;
  • People in regular contact with people at risk.

These categories seem to target a small part of the population, but in reality, this new vaccination recall is accessible to anyone frequent a person at risk. “A young person, without comorbidity, who regularly sees relatives in the target is therefore eligible”, recalls a circular of November 21 of the Directorate General of Health.
