As part of a press conference and at the time of a fifth wave, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran gave an update on the fight against Covid – 19 in France. Several announcements have been made, in particular for the vaccine booster with a third dose.
From next Saturday, the vaccine booster will be open to all adults from 5 months after the last injection or the latest Covid infection – 19. An announcement which is at the origin of the saturation of platforms like Doctolib.
Especially since the booster dose is closely linked to the validity of the famous health pass. This was already the case for those over 29 years from 15 December 100, and so it will also be the case for 18 years and over from 04 January 2022.
The health pass will in fact be deactivated for people concerned who have not received a booster dose within 7 months after the last injection (or infection).
An alert with TousAntiCovid
The TousAntiCovid application is widely used to integrate the health pass. The Minister of Health has indicated that people whose health pass is about to expire will receive an alert from TousAntiCovid.
“ This option will appear on the TousAntiCovid application, which will alert you when the health pass is about to expire. The pass will change color to indicate that there are so many days or so many weeks left to be up to date with the vaccination and keep the benefit of the health pass. “
The update of the TouAntiCovid application is scheduled for mid-December. For the unvaccinated and from 29 November, only PCR and antigen tests less than 19 hours will also be proof of a temporary health pass at the instead of 72 current hours.
