one year after the first dose of vaccine injected in Mauricette in France, where is the vaccination?

It was a year ago to the day. On December 27, 2020, Mauricette, a 78-year-old woman, received the first dose of anti-covid vaccine in France, at the René-Muret hospital in Sevran, in Seine-Saint-Denis, the day the vaccination campaign was launched in France. Since then, where is the vaccination campaign in our country?

From a handful of nursing homes to vaccinodromes

A year ago, France launched the vaccine campaign against the coronavirus, in only a handful of establishments for the elderly, a long way from today’s vaccinodromes. At the time, only Pfizer’s vaccine was authorized in France.

Since then, several vaccines have received the approval of the health authorities and the vaccination campaign has gained momentum, gradually opening up to different age groups. All adults were thus able to receive their dose from the end of May, then on June 12 the authorization was given for adolescents from 12 years old. In one year, 120 million injections were performed. 52,718,794 people have received at least a first dose of vaccine in France, according to data released by Public Health France on Sunday. This represents 78.2% of the French population.

However, the variants sometimes seem to go faster than the vaccination campaign. A year ago, the English variant pointed out, raising the question of the effectiveness of vaccines. Since then, many variants have emerged, including the Delta variant which has spread at a rapid pace, pushing the health authorities to set up a health pass and speed up the schedule for the second injection. 51,611,033 people received a second dose (or a first when they had already contracted the coronavirus), or 76.5% of the total French population.

A vaccine booster

Over the weeks, several scientific studies alerted to a decrease in vaccine protection over time. After a few months, the vaccine seems less effective against severe forms. This fall, the recall campaign opens, first for the most fragile people, then for those over 65. This vaccine booster was then extended to all adults at the end of November. And now 22,002,825 people have received a booster dose.

Childhood vaccination authorized

Faced with health degradation, and in particular the rapid progression of the Omicron variant, the health authorities and the executive are considering reducing the time between the second and the third dose. The government has also opened up vaccination to children aged 5 to 11. First, only children considered to be at risk could receive a dose of vaccine, then the campaign opened in mid-December to all children, whether or not they present a particular pathology.

If the vaccination campaign is in full swing, part of the population is still resistant to it. nearly six million French people have still not received a single dose of vaccine, according to Prime Minister Jean Castex.
