France sees a return to COVID-19 cases. The National Health Agency reported 72,443 new cases on Saturday. France will drop the vaccine pass requirement before entering public places and indoor mask mandates on Monday.

Despite the easing of restrictions, Prime Minister Jean Castex said he strongly recommended that vulnerable people keep masks indoors and in crowded areas.

Since the start of the vaccine campaign – that is, on December 27, 2020 – in France, 54,247,188 people have been given the first dose of the vaccine, and 53,305,799 have been given the second dose. Vaccinated people are part of a priority target planned by health officials:

  • Older adults (0.6 million people) in nursing homes or chronic-care facilities
  • people over 75 years of age (5.5 million people)
  • health caregivers (2.2 million people)
  • Vulnerable people are at very high risk of developing severe diseases, as outlined by the Immunization Strategy Guidance Committee (0.8 million people)
  • firefighters (0.3 million people)
  • Domestic help for people with disabilities or older adults (0.4 million people)
  • Vulnerable disabled people living in medical homes or special homes (<0.1 million people)
