Vaccine: between 500 and 700,000 passes possibly deactivated on Saturday

Between 500,000 and 700,000 people who have not recalled their vaccine against Covid-19 theoretically risk having their health pass deactivated on Saturday, a number, however, undoubtedly overestimated, the Minister of Health said on Wednesday.

“We have roughly between 500 and 700,000 (people) who, two days ago had not yet received their reminder,” said Olivier Véran on franceinfo, stressing however that the number of passes deactivated on that date- stopper would undoubtedly be lower.

“Among these 500 to 700,000, there are a significant number who have presented an infection and who have not yet put proof of their infection in their All Anti Covid system”, which extends the validity of their pass, a he added.

The day before, the ministry had estimated the number at a maximum of 800,000, also indicating that it was “probably overestimated”.

At the end of November, by opening the vaccine booster to all adults, the government announced that it would be necessary to extend the health pass (which will soon be replaced by a vaccination pass). In the absence of a reminder or certificate of reinstatement, the pass can be deactivated from January 15.

This does not mean that the reminder must necessarily have been made before this date, which simply corresponds to the entry into force of the mechanism: from Saturday, the pass will be deactivated for people who have not had a booster dose. at most 7 months after the last injection.

“Recall is the rule, non-recall is the exception”

For those over 65 and people with comorbidities, who had access to the booster as early as September, that deadline was December 15.

“In mid-December, people were worried (…), and in fact you have not heard of pass that jump”, relativized Mr. Véran.

According to him, 98% of vaccinated people over 65 were recalled seven months after their last injection. This proportion is “almost 90%” three months after the last injection.

“The rate of acceptability of the recall is enormous”, assured Mr. Véran, according to which “the recall is the rule, the non-recall is the exception”.

For the time being, 29.5 million people have received their recall since the opening of the campaign on September 1, then its gradual expansion to all adults.
