The mayor Les Républicains (LR) of 7e arrondissement of Paris, Rachida Dati, defended Thursday, April 8 its strategy to extend vaccination to teachers and school staff in its center, while the socialist mayor (PS) of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, asks him to “Respect the legal framework”.
“We are not illegal, because vaccination is based on a circular and not on a decree, decree or law, so we do not violate any rule or law by vaccinating more broadly”, explained Mme Dati during a preparatory press conference for the next Paris Council.
“There are doses that are either unaffected or at risk of being lost or thrown away” and the town hall of 7e decided to assign them to these “Essential audiences such as teachers or nursery and school staff”, defended the former Keeper of the Seals.
“Today, we do not have the right to do so”
“Since January 28, I ask the government to be able to register teachers as a priority., explained Anne Hidalgo on RTL. Since January 28, I have been told: we do not have enough doses to extend vaccination to all audiences who are not yet a priority. “
“Today, we do not have the right to do so”, added the mayor of Paris, asking Rachida Dati to “Respect the legal framework”. “You have been called to order by the prefect and the ARS because you are breaking the rules for eligible audiences set by the government”, had explained in a tweet the first deputy mayor of Paris, Emmanuel Grégoire.
Mme Dati had asked in a press release “It is up to the State services and the Prefect of Police not to give in to the pressure and threats from Mr.me Hidalgo “, denouncing the “Lack of anticipation, vision and organization” of the mayor of Paris.
The Changer Paris group, which brings together elected Republicans, centrists and independents to the Council of Paris, also pleads to vaccinate people housed in social residences as well as, at their homes, those who cannot move. Mme Dati pointed out that unaffected or wasted doses “Are found to be injected at the end of the day on the most mobile audiences, even though they are not a priority in the current target”.
