Covid-19: why so few caregivers have been vaccinated so far

DECRYPTION – Only a third of healthcare workers in hospitals have been vaccinated. Doctors and nurses explain why, despite the exhortations of Olivier Véran, they still have not received their injection.

Despite thousands of AstraZeneca doses waiting in refrigerators, only a third of healthcare workers in hospitals have so far been vaccinated against Covid-19. Friday March 5, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran urged on his Twitter account caregivers to be vaccinated “the fastest possible”, Considering that the number of healthcare professionals who have already received a first injection was too low. For its part, the Order of Physicians went further this Saturday, March 6 by appealing to their “duty to set an example“.

It is true that there is a low rate of vaccination among caregivers: out of 600,000 AstraZeneca doses received in hospitals, only 25% have been used. In addition, according to a study by Public Health France, reluctance seems more widespread among nursing assistants. We note that only 30% of them intend to be vaccinated, while this figure is 47% for nurses and 82% for doctors.
