Covid-19: are the first effects of vaccination already visible?
THE CHEKING PROCESS – Now that 25 to 30% of those over 75 are vaccinated in France, can we see the impact of this “artificial” immunity on the epidemic curves?
THE QUESTION. It is the promise of a return to a normal life, or almost. Two months after the launch of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign in France, just over 3.2 million people have received at least one injection of serum, or 4.7% of the population. Of these, 1.7 million received a full two-dose vaccination. Coverage below expectations, without being negligible.
According to government spokesman Gabriel Attal, however, the effect of these vaccinations should not be visible for several more weeks. “In April / May, we can hope to have a sufficient impact of the vaccination to observe a decrease in the pressure on the hospital and therefore, we hope, a reduction in restrictions. But in the meantime, we must continue to hold on“, he said on Tuesday, following a visit to the intensive care unit at Saint-Louis hospital in Paris. What is it? Can we already see the first effects of vaccination?
