"Dare to take the plunge": the Academy of Medicine says it is in favor of compulsory vaccination via the health pass


In a statement released on Tuesday, the institution urges the government to defend the vaccine pass as an "undisguised" obligation

The day after the hearing of Olivier Véran, Minister of Health, on the government management of the health crisis before the senators, the Academy of Medicine breaks a taboo.

In a press release entitled "Daring to take the plunge", published this Tuesday, the learned society asks that "the doctrine" of the vaccine pass is "clearly exposed and sincerely defended as a vaccine obligation, not disguised, in the same way as other vaccine obligations currently in force ”.

The day before, the senator (PS) of Paris Bernard Jomier had precisely regretted "a disguised form" of the vaccine obligation, through the past.

"Ministers do not have to disguise their decision," he remarked, questioning the minister: "Don't you regret the time lost, is it not time to be straightforward and to lay down the principle of compulsory vaccination which, if it will never convince the small minority of antivax, means that a certain number of French people take the plunge and get vaccinated?


Revival of the number of primary vaccinations: “The obligation arrived in your remarks, even if it is in disguised form, which I regret.

The ministers do not have to disguise their decision ”, notes the senator @BernardJomier #PasseVaccinal #PJLGestionSanitaire

This Tuesday, in the Assembly, he persisted: the elected representative, a doctor by profession, again pleaded for “the undisguised universal vaccination obligation”.

Vaccine pass: "This text was born badly, it does not respond to the current wave. However, the government wanted to pass in force to the Assembly", estimates @BernardJomier who denounces "a political posture".

On the same day, the National Academy of Medicine gave this idea a little more credit. "Faced with a deadly epidemic that cannot be controlled by any other means, compulsory vaccination is a civic duty and not a threat of punishment: announced as a general mobilization against a common enemy, SARS-CoV-2, it should lead to membership a very large majority of French people, ”she wrote in her press release.

It even goes further, by submitting the idea of ​​requiring the health pass at workplaces, as in Germany.

"The eligibility of the vaccination pass must be extended to all meeting places (work, leisure, shops, public transport), without forgetting people working at home with elderly and / or vulnerable people (housekeepers, family helpers). …), Any derogation from the principle of universality limiting its scope and reducing its effectiveness.


Last August, the Academies of medicine, science and pharmacy had already split a press release to defend vaccination, denouncing the "fake news" around messenger RNA.
