Covid-19 vaccine: up to 800,000 passes possibly disabled on Saturday for lack of booster dose


By the government's own admission, during a press briefing on Tuesday, this figure is undoubtedly distorted, and overestimated, by the number of people saying

In the absence of a reminder or certificate of reinstatement, the pass can be deactivated from January 15 for thousands of people.

Up to 800,000 people who have not recalled their vaccine against Covid-19 risk having their health pass deactivated this Saturday, a deadline set in November by the government, according to the Ministry of Health.

As of January 9, "there are 800,000 people who still have to carry out their recall to keep their health pass," said the ministry during a point with journalists on Tuesday, stressing however that this figure was "probably overestimated ".

The doubt relates to people with a certificate of recovery from the Covid dating back more than three months (this certificate being valid for 6 months).

"We do not have the percentage of those people who have already made their recall," the ministry said, according to the number of 800,000 is "an upper limit".

Disabled 7 months after second dose

“We are not immune to a good surprise and a figure which, in reality, is lower. And then we have the whole week ahead for these people to call back on time, ”he adds. 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 recall must necessarily have been made before this date, which simply corresponds to the entry into force of the mechanism: from Saturday, the pass of people who have not had a maximum booster dose. 7 months after their last injection will be disabled.

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