The French government announced on Friday that it was tightening the conditions for access to the Health Pass to overcome the Omicron variant. “It will dominate from the beginning of 2022”.
The announcement comes on the heels of a decision by the Health Care Council to consider new measures in the face of the fifth wave of lightning and the highly contagious Omigran variant of Govit-19.
Omigron variant, its diffusion speed “Dazzling around us in Europe”, “Spread too fast to dominate from the beginning of 2022” In France, Prime Minister Jean Costex announced.
As a result, the Health Pass will become the “Vaccine Pass” at the beginning of the year, which will only be implemented with a complete vaccination schedule and will no longer be implemented through a simple negative test.
“Only the vaccine is valid in the vaccine”
“From now on only the vaccine is valid in the pass”, The head of government insisted after the Health Care Council.
The Health Pass is especially sought after in restaurants, shopping centers, entertainment venues, and museums.
The move would be the subject of a bill tabled in parliament in early January, which would also include the desire to “tighten the restrictions on permits and sanctions,” Jean Costex underlined.
“It is unacceptable that the refusal of a few million French people to be vaccinated is endangering the lives of an entire country and undermining the daily lives of the vast majority of French people who have played since the beginning of this crisis.”, He hammered.
“We feel that important care and rehabilitation services in our hospitals are often overwhelmed by those who are not vaccinated, putting pressure on those who are not vaccinated.”, Explained Jean Costex.
The deadline for access to the vaccine booster will be reduced to four months instead of five months.
More than 121,000 of France’s 67 million people have died from Govt-19 since the outbreak began. Nearly 90% of the population over the age of 12 is vaccinated, making it one of the EU’s highest immunization coverage.
