On Monday, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran had already announced that people aged 65 to 74, presenting "risks of co-morbidity", could now receive this vaccine.

Caregivers invited to be vaccinated. The Prime Minister also "solemnly" invited staff working in residences for the elderly to be vaccinated "very quickly". Ditto for "doctors, nurses, midwives, nursing assistants, home helpers". A strong recommendation that could turn into an obligation if the numbers do not increase. "If (the incentive) were not enough, then we could consider a referral to the National Consultative Ethics Council which would be able to tell us whether to go beyond," said Olivier Véran.
