vaccinationIn France, the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 is scheduled to start at the end of December 2020- beginning of January 2021.

Phase II:

  • Vaccination of people over 75 years of age,
  • vaccination of persons aged 65 to 74 with one or more comorbidity(ies),
  • vaccination of persons aged 65 to 74 without comorbidity,
  • vaccination of professionals in the medico-social sector and medical transport, aged over 50 years.

Phase III:

  • vaccination of people under 65 years of age suffering from one or more comorbidity(ies),
  • vaccination of professionals in the medical-social sector and health transport under the age of 50,
  • vaccination of essential workers (security, education, etc.).

Phase IV:

  • Vaccination of the rest of the most exposed professionals and those considered vulnerable.
