French Health Minister Olivier Véran on Tuesday defended the country’s vaccinated Covid-19 vaccine in the coming weeks, although it wants to call for more senior citizens to be eligible when certain drugs are not used.
At present, people 55 years of age and older may be offered the drug, but several vaccination centers have shown a decrease in voter turnout and additional bottles in recent weeks.
As a result, some government officials have given quietly vaccine to all senior executives to help speed up inoccines.
Since the end of last week adults have allowed people between the ages of 18 to 50 with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure or obesity to register as well, without giving a medical certificate or medical treatment.
This led to the hope that healthy adults would report the disease in order to get vaccinated faster, but Vera he said the rule was “reasonable.”
“I believe in the French,” Véran told European Radio 1. “There may be some efforts to avoid the rules but it will be on the edge.”
The French vaccine is expected to rise to 4.5 million a week in May and 6.9 million a week in June, as the government gradually reduces the spread of new infections.
Some health experts have urged government officials to provide vaccinations to anyone who wishes, as this study shows that millions of French people may refuse on the grounds or out of fear.
Some 16.1 million people have received a single dose, representing 24 percent of the population, according to a study by the Ministry of Health.
President Emmanuel Macron Last week he said more than 50 seniors will be eligible from May 15, and all seniors will be able to register from June 15.
Hospitals continue to suffer, however, with more than 5,600 Covid patients in hospitals, and more than 300 people die every day.
But the incidence of the disease has dropped, showing that new daily cases are 28,000 last week, down from 36,000 last week.
