From January 18, over 75s and those deemed high-risk in France can receive the vaccine
Reader question: Is it necessary for me to have an appointment with my doctor before I get the Covid vaccine? I am happy to go without one
From Monday, January 18, over 75s and people deemed high-risk to serious forms of Covid in France will be able to receive a vaccine.
For those high-risk people, it will be necessary to have a consultation with a GP before being vaccinated.
For everyone else, a consultation is not obligatory.
Anyone going to get vaccinated will need to give their permission. This can be done at the vaccination centre during a consultation with a nurse or doctor and patients can be vaccinated immediately after.
