All over 18s in France can now book an appointment for a Covid-19 vaccination, with slots open from May 31. 

The possibility to reserve appointments was opened yesterday (May 27).

You can book by phoning vaccination centres - details can be found on Sante.fr - or online through various booking websites such as Doctolib, Maiia and KelDoc

You can also use the online tool Vite Ma Dose to rapidly find the next available appointment in your area.

Only people aged over 55 are eligible for the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. These vaccines are available in pharmacies, and at GP and nurses’ practices. 

Moderna’s vaccine is also available in these places.

Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine is being administered in vaccination centres around the country.

The government has set the goal of giving at least a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine to all willing adults by the end of summer.

The latest figures (May 26) show that 24,150,103 people in France have received at least one dose. That equates to just over 36% of the entire population.

Over 11million people have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in France.

France broke a new record for the number of daily vaccinations yesterday (May 27), with over 685,000 doses administered.

Summer vaccination plans

France’s health minister will announce in the coming days a plan specifically for this summer to facilitate Covid-19 vaccinations while people holiday, the government’s spokesperson Gabriel Attal said this morning (May 28).

“We are going to increase the supply of vaccines to centres located in very touristy areas so that French people who have not yet been vaccinated, who are going on holiday, can be vaccinated if they so wish,” Mr Attal said. 

“If there are French people who want to be vaccinated, they must be able to be vaccinated. 

“However, when you make an appointment for a first dose in a centre, the second dose of vaccine, the second appointment, must be made in that centre,” he said.
