There are now over 1,000 Covid-19 vaccination centres in France, considerably more than the 600 the government announced it would open by the end of January.
There are several ways to find your nearest centre.
The easiest is to go to sante.fr where you will find a list of centres broken down into departments. You will find information on all of the centres, including phone numbers, address and, where possible, a link to booking an appointment online through a third-party website.
There is also a free phone number that you can call to ask for information on your nearest centre. The number is: 0800 009 110. This line is open every day between 06:00 and 22:00. Some Connexion readers report having trouble getting through to an operator due to the line being busy.
It is necessary to book a vaccination appointment before visiting a centre. Currently, appointments are open to those aged over 75 and those, of any age, with serious health issues meaning they are at high risk for developing a severe form of the virus.
The highest number of vaccination centres in France are around Paris, as can be seen in the map below.
