In full resumption of the epidemic in France, with more than 30,000 cases diagnosed on Tuesday, the government is preparing to announce several measures, which will be officially unveiled at a press conference on Thursday, once all the players (deputies , senators and local elected officials) will have been consulted.
But during Jean Castex’s interview with the senators this Wednesday afternoon, several measures, in particular concerning the third dose, have already been unveiled, according to information from La Voix Du Nord.
The government has reportedly decided to follow the advice of the Scientific Council and the Vaccine Strategy Orientation Council, two advisory bodies which have expressed themselves in recent days, on the third dose. According to our colleagues, the Minister of Health should announce this Thursday an expansion of the third dose to the entire population over 18, from mid-January.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
The third dose should condition the health pass. Those over 18 should have two months and one week, starting from month 5, to receive the third dose. As a result, if the person still has not received it, the pass will no longer be valid.
In addition, the time to receive this third dose will be reduced to five months instead of six.
The government is also expected to announce that the validity of PCR tests will be reduced from 72 hours currently to 24 hours (which is already the rule in most other European countries).
