I really make a solemn appeal, again, to caregivers who have not been vaccinated to take this step. It is important, they cannot be less vaccinated than the general population

, said the minister.

60% of French adults have already received an injection ”.

Conversely, Olivier Véran explains that this is the case for "

less than 60% of caregivers who work in nursing homes

", and adds that "

it is not justifiable

".

"

I call on employers, employees in nursing homes to be vaccinated

", he continued, warning that "

if by the end of the summer, things should not improve, then yes, we would ask ourselves the question of a vaccination obligation for these particular audiences

”.

In the city, in the liberal sector, we are at 85% vaccination coverage, in nursing homes, we are at 50%.

However, it is in Ehpad that we find the most fragile people.

I consider it essential and ethical to be vaccinated, when you are in contact with fragile people

, ”he said, believing that there was“

no justification

”for not doing so.

Asked about the caregivers at the hospital, Olivier Véran said "

wait and see

". "

I hope that we can, in good understanding, improve this vaccination coverage for caregivers,

" he added.
