The Santé.fr site, launched to allow French people to make an appointment to be vaccinated, has been voluntarily blocked by the Ministry of Health.
Barely operational, soon submerged? The Santé.fr site, which will allow French people to make an appointment to be vaccinated against Covid-19, was inaccessible this Thursday, January 14, suggesting a computer bug.
“The site is not down. It was voluntarily and temporarily blocked by the Ministry of Health, the time to return all the vaccination centers listed. It will be operational tomorrow morning”, said the Ministry of Solidarity and Health from BFMTV.
As of today, those over 75 can register online, in one of the 700 dedicated centers. More than 5 million people are potentially affected.
Three private actors
Santé.fr is one of the privileged passages to obtain a vaccination window, offering an exhaustive map of all the vaccination centers. The government has also selected three private partners to facilitate appointment scheduling. In reality, Santé.fr therefore only redirects Internet users to these different platforms, via links integrated into the map.
The Doctolib, Maiia (subsidiary of the Cegedim medical IT group) and Keldoc online platforms act as relays for finalizing the registration. The government gave up on spending by the TousAntiCovid application because that would have complicated the process.
While waiting for Santé.fr to be put back online, it is therefore possible for the populations concerned to register by going directly through Doctolib, Maiia or Keldoc, which each identify a part of the vaccination centers.
For French people who are unfamiliar with making an appointment online, a simple phone call is still possible. According to INSEE, in 2019, one in two people aged 75 or over did not have access to the Internet at home.
