against seasonal flu, the French authorities want to go quickly: the vaccination campaign will be launched earlier than expected, Friday, in a particularly uncertain context because always marked by the epidemic of Covid-19. "Because everything is ready for the influenza vaccination campaign, we are moving forward," said Monday night on Twitter the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran. The French can therefore be vaccinated on Friday if they are part of the categories to which it is recommended to do so.

It is essentially over 65 years old and pregnant women, but also people with certain pathologies: asthma, diabetes, heart failure, AIDS ... All caregivers are also concerned. We are talking about vaccination "in the city" for independent people, who can for example ask their doctor or pharmacist. In the EHPAD, the campaign has already started Monday. Originally, the French had to wait until Tuesday, October 26 to be vaccinated against the flu. The Ministry of Health finally preferred to hurry and advance the date of four days.

In cause: COVID-19, which is always the subject of its own vaccination campaign. At-risk French can be injected with an anti-Covid vaccine recall dose since the beginning of September. However, the people involved in this "third dose" are often the same as those who must receive the influenza vaccine, in the first place the elderly. Sanitary authorities therefore want to make two shots with one stone. The date is advanced to "lose no opportunity to vaccinate against influenza and against (the) Covid-19 the most fragile people", explained the Directorate General of Health (DGS), which depends on the Ministry, Monday in a Note to caregivers. As for the non-priority French, they will have to wait a month, on November 22, even if the DGS is the opportunity to open vaccination earlier everybody.

Not yet alert

concretely, it will be possible - and even encouraged - to receive at the same time its third dose of anti-covid vaccine and its flu vaccine. At the end of September, the High Authority of Health (HAS) had prepared the ground emphasizing that there is no danger to be vaccinated simultaneously against both diseases. The only precaution to take, you have to receive each sting in a different arm. As every year, it is difficult to know how much the flu will hit many French. And fears are particularly high in the event of a restart of the CVIV-19 epidemic: two simultaneous epidemics, flu and Covid, would put the hospital system with tough test.

last year, in the full second wave of COVID-19, there was no seasonal influenza epidemic. The successive confines and "barrier" measures against the epidemic had then reduced the circulation of other viruses, starting with that of influenza. Return from the medal, the low circulation of viruses last winter has probably decreased the immunity of the population. There are, thus, already signs of a rebound of bronchiolitis, respiratory disease that affects babies. But for the time being, nothing concrete as to the flu, which usually reaches his peak from December.

"I can not predict you with assurance that there will be an influenza epidemic", summarizes a source within Public Health France, Departmental Dependent Health Agency. "We start seeing a little bit of circulation of viruses but there is no alert." In any case, the government took its precautions by ordering more vaccines than last year.
