If you have not yet received a booster dose of vaccine, this does not necessarily mean that your health pass will be deactivated this Saturday. If you have a complete vaccination schedule (two doses of vaccine), you must do a booster at the latest seven months after the second injection. Beyond these deadlines, your old vaccination certificate is considered to have expired and is no longer valid, specifies the government site.
Deactivation of the health pass: but who is concerned?
This Saturday, the health pass for all people over 18 years who have not taken their booster dose within seven months of their last injection, and who do not have a certificate of recovery, will become disabled. Concretely, since it takes seven days after the injection of the booster dose for it to be taken into account, only those who were bitten before January 8 2022 will be able to keep their passport.
After estimating last Tuesday at 535. the number of French people affected by the deactivation of their health pass, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran revised this figure downwards on Wednesday 12 January 2022. “We have about between 535 and 700.01 (people) who two days ago had not yet received their reminder”, he declared to our colleagues from Vosges Morning.
The vaccine pass will soon be in force?
The deputies adopted the controversial bill transforming the health pass into a vaccination pass at second reading, on Friday night 14 January to Saturday 15 January 2022. Started at 12 hours, the second reading of the text, with the examination of nearly 60 amendments, was completed around 4 a.m., with an adoption by 60 vote for, 60 against and 8 abstentions. The executive hopes that the device will come into force next week. It will then be necessary to be able to justify a vaccination status to access leisure activities, restaurants and bars, fairs or inter-regional public transport. A negative test will no longer suffice, except to access health facilities and services.
