It is a frank and clear acceleration of vaccination.
The City of Paris will recover, according to our information, some 11,000 doses out of the 40,000 intended for Ile-de-France, to vaccinate in turn of syringes this Saturday and Sunday.
The centers, depending on the arrondissements, will even be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. as in the 15th century.
"Everyone must be on the bridge this weekend to vaccinate as quickly as possible" underlined Jean Castex.
The Prime Minister's announcement this Thursday evening was greeted by the Town Hall.
Anne Hidalgo satisfied with this acceleration
There is no question of arguing as in recent weeks, and even in recent days, on the side of the central town hall.
Anne Hidalgo, possible presidential candidate in 2022, does not rise to the front line as was the case last Monday.
But we welcome this new arrival of doses and we have been fighting since the beginning of the morning to set up a vast plan so that the 20 centers are able to welcome Parisians.
A meeting with Emmanuel Grégoire (PS) launched the operation in collaboration with the ARS (regional health agency) and the mayors of the arrondissement.
“This additional delivery, which goes in the right direction, gives new hope.
The mayor of Paris wants the state to continue to increase the quantities of vaccines provided to the French, especially in the departments where the virus circulates the most, to reduce the number of admissions to hospital and to intensive care units, and thus reduce mortality and move as quickly as possible towards collective immunity, ”says one at the town hall.
Thus slots have been opened on Doctolib to allow Parisians to make an appointment.
People who were on the waiting list and who meet the age or health criteria set by the health authorities will be given priority for this vaccination weekend.
Some 1,000 places will also be available for reservation by telephone at 39.75 for isolated people.
Finally, since Thursday, "temporary vaccination centers allow the inhabitants of these districts eligible for the AstraZeneca vaccine to be vaccinated at the foot of their building".
"Under the sign of improvisation"
In the 9th arrondissement, the mayor (DVD), Delphine Bürkli, applauds this boost given to the vaccination campaign.
Thanks to this unexpected distribution of bottles, this district of the Right Bank will be provided with 300 additional doses.
With this addition, nearly 550 injections can be made.
As soon as she was informed, Delphine Bürkli changed the organization of the center to adapt.
“You have to know how to be agile with this crisis!
The vaccinations will therefore take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. instead of the usual 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. slot.
And we will have an additional doctor, ”indicates the elected official.
Same thing on the side of the largest Parisian arrondissement (the 15th), led by Philippe Goujon (LR): “I asked for some 2,500 doses which would allow me, if I get them, to close the long waiting list that We have.
So I'm not going to complain even if all this once again lacks anticipation and is placed under the sign of improvisation.
Doctors, nurses and administrative staff were therefore urgently mobilized to officiate this weekend.
"It is not the same thing to vaccinate a hundred people a day and go all at once to a thousand," continues Goujon.
You have to call people, prepare the waiting areas.
The work is enormous.
