Vaccination against Covid in France: appointments, centers …


Find on this page the information about making an appointment for the Covid-19 vaccination.

[Mis à jour le 22 février 2021 à 16h02] The difficulties of the vaccination campaign may soon disappear. Vaccine doses are still insufficient given the demand, but all this could change in the coming weeks, according to members of the government. From March, with the probable arrival of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, vaccinations should be able to be done at a more sustained pace. This is also an imperative for the objectives announced by the executive to be achieved. “This summer, we will have vaccinated all fragile people,” Alain Fischer, in charge of the vaccine strategy deployed by the government, announced on Monday.

When it comes to making appointments, it can always be complicated to get a date, even if it depends on the region, which can generate incomprehension, even anger among those eligible for vaccination. “I understand this frustration. In principle, it works well in some places, there is a possibility of pre-registration. (…) If we had restricted the population, there would have been fewer people waiting, but ( …) there would have been fewer doses administered “, specified the same professor Fischer last week on BFMTV. But already, the number of appointments made in anti-Covid vaccination centers has “accelerated in recent days”, explained the president of Doctolib, Stanislas Niox-Chateau, quoted by France Bleu.

The Ministry of Health has deployed an online service on the Sante.fr site, which allows a vaccination center to be identified very quickly around one’s home. Find the device below, very easy to use: just enter an address to find the list of the closest vaccination locations. Connection difficulties were noted this Thursday, January 14, given the number of registration requests.

Registrations for people wishing to be vaccinated, subject to being eligible for vaccination, are open. For now, only people over 75 (nursing homes and outside nursing homes) and caregivers can use it. It is possible to make an appointment on one of the three platforms chosen by the government, centralized on the sante.fr site (Doctolib, Maiia and Keldoc). It is also possible to make an appointment by telephone, by dialing 0 800 009 110.

People wishing to be vaccinated and who are not residents of nursing home – those who are can benefit from an in situ vaccination – must go to centers, open on a departmental scale. There will gradually be 600 centers by the end of January, promised the Minister of Health Olivier Véran, specifying that “each municipality will not have its own center, it would be inconsistent given the number of doses and of people to be vaccinated”.

As soon as the appointment is made, a form will then be submitted in order to obtain checks on the patient’s profile and thus verify whether the vaccination against Covid-19 is not incompatible. Allergies, medical treatment … This is the kind of information that will be checked. This will be the last step before vaccination, the government having simplified the procedure by not making the pre-vaccination consultation with his doctor compulsory. It will then be necessary to wait between three and six weeks before going again to a center in order to carry out the second injection inherent in the anti-Covid vaccine as it exists today. Note that for the moment and if the vaccines continue to present the same indications and the same contraindications, there will be no need to choose this or that vaccine, they will be offered indifferently.

Vaccination in France is ongoing, but for many people the wait is still required before the injection. To have visibility on your vaccine eligibility, the Omnicalculator site has set up a simulation to obtain a more or less precise date, depending on your age and your profile, all this according to the schedule set up by the government. For example, for a 30-year-old man with no particular health problem and who is not a health professional, the vaccination will take place between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022.

Vaccination began on December 27 in France, for the time being it only concerns adults. France has a potential of 200 million doses, which can vaccinate 100 million people knowing that the vaccine requires two doses a few weeks apart. France will spend 1.5 billion euros for these vaccines, allocated to the social security budget. As a reminder, 70% of the population should be vaccinated, according to the scientific journal Nature, to achieve collective immunity.

The answer is no. Emmanuel Macron, during his speech on November 24, made a commitment to the French. The government’s strategy, which must in spite of everything convince the greatest number to be vaccinated, rather aims to establish a relationship of confidence in this vaccine file, in the face of a population particularly reluctant to be vaccinated. The executive thus wishes to set up total transparency on the subject, which will have to participate “in the relationship of trust that the government wishes to establish with the citizens concerning the apprehension in the face of this vaccine”, as slipped a relative of the chief from the State to the Sunday Journal. The government’s task promises to be difficult since, according to an IFOP poll carried out for the JDD, 59% of French people do not want to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
