Facing a “resumption of the circulation of the virus”, the vaccination campaign with “new bivalent vaccines against Omicron” will start “from October 3”, announced this Tuesday the Minister of Health François Braun on franceinfo.
A reminder for fragile people and their entourage, the over 60s and caregivers
“We have seen for three weeks a resumption of the circulation of the virus”, indicated the minister, who confirms the need for“a new booster dose for target populations”. This will concern “frail people, the over 60s, health professionals and people who are in contact with fragile people”.
This reminder will not concern the general population, even though “of course, if you want to get vaccinated, you can”he continues.
“From October 3, we will have available in pharmacies, at vaccination centers, this new bivalent vaccine, that is to say this vaccine which vaccinates you on the wild strain but also against Omicron”said François Braun.
The minister calls for more wearing the mask
Regarding the wearing of a mask, François Braun calls for “regain common sense”: “When you are on top of each other, it is more reasonable to put on your mask. When you are with a very fragile person, you put on your mask”.
