New vaccination against Covid: who is affected?

A new vaccination campaign will begin this Monday, April 15. Who are the people being targeted?

Although there are no longer any restrictive measures in France, Covid-19 is still there. This is why a new vaccination campaign will begin this Monday, April 15. A recall will be possible until June 16. Depending on the circulation of the virus, the vaccination campaign could be extended by one month. The last one took place in the fall.

The period was not chosen at random. With the return of sunny days, the French will, in fact, go out more and more and meet each other. Many trips will also take place during the summer vacation period.

Additionally, this year the Olympic and Paralympic Games will increase the movement of people from all over the world. Health Insurance explained on its website that it feared “an epidemic wave” following this event.

This vaccination is mainly aimed at people aged 80 and over, the Directorate General of Health told BFMTV. It is also recommended for immunocompromised people and residents of EHPADs and USLDs, regardless of their age. “This vaccination renewal approach is part of a collective desire to protect the most vulnerable populations and limit the spread of the virus throughout the year,” explained the DGS.

Anyone wishing to be vaccinated even if they are not part of the target population can, however, receive a new dose of vaccine. The only mandatory condition: the last injection or the last Covid-19 infection must be at least three months old. Vaccination can be done by a doctor, pharmacist or even a nurse. It is 100% supported and therefore does not incur any costs.
