Covid-19: up to 40,000 Bretons risk losing their health pass this Saturday

This Saturday, January 15, the date chosen by the government last November, a new ax will fall: to benefit from a valid health pass, all French people over the age of 18 and one month must provide proof of a booster dose at maximum seven months after their last injection. Otherwise, the QR code of their old vaccination certificate will be deactivated automatically. In other words, those who received a complete primary vaccination before June 15, and cannot justify contamination in the meantime, had to be vaccinated as a booster on January 8 at the latest, because it is necessary to take into account a period of seven days after the injection for the pass to become active… Such a mechanism has existed since December 15 for people over 65 and people suffering from comorbidities.

On what date will you lose your health pass for lack of a 3rd dose?

900,000 Bretons eligible for a recall

Result: many Bretons will have their health pass deactivated this Saturday and will no longer be able to feast in a restaurant or toast in a bar. Exactly how much? The Regional Health Agency (ARS) tells us this Friday that “95.3% of people at seven months have already recalled.” 40,000 people would not have done it and risk losing their pass. ?But the ARS invites us to weight this figure, by subtracting the number of deceased Bretons. And to take into account those who have been infected with covid after a complete initial regimen and before this booster dose. To date, the ARS estimates that, out of 900,000 people who have yet to carry out this recall in Brittany, 100,000 have been infected.

This relative imprecision on the figures is the same at the national level: on Tuesday, the Ministry of Health indicated, during a point with journalists, that “up to 800,000 people risked seeing their health pass deactivated this Saturday”, a figure “probably overestimated”. On Wednesday morning, the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, reassessed this data “between 500,000 and 700,000” on France Info. Thursday evening, the ministry finally communicated on a closer “nearly 600,000”.

People who were infected after a complete initial vaccination schedule and before receiving their booster benefit from a time extension to keep their valid health pass. This reminder will be carried out at least three months after infection and at most six months and four weeks later, according to the government website. But for the pass to remain valid, it will be necessary to enter, in the TousAntiCovid application, the positive result of its PCR or antigen test of at least 11 days and less than 6 months.

This Saturday, it will still be possible to present the negative result of a test of less than 24 hours in a restaurant, a museum or a bar, since the final law authorizing the implementation of the vaccination pass, and no longer health, n has still not been voted on.

The deadline reduced to four months on February 15

In a few weeks, on February 15, the pressure will increase even more to do your booster dose, since the health pass will no longer be valid if it has not been done within four months of the initial vaccination schedule. : all those who have completed it before October 15 must have received their reminder by February 8 at the latest.
