Covid-19: will the current vaccination rate achieve collective immunity in the coming months?

THE CHEKING PROCESS – The extension of the health pass obligation to access public places gave a boost to the vaccination campaign. To the point of hoping to quickly obtain the collective immunity so hoped for?

THE QUESTION – On July 16 at the end of the afternoon, the Minister of Health announced a new 24-hour vaccination record: 879,597 injections, including 381,304 first doses. Since Emmanuel Macron’s announcements on the extension of the obligation of the health pass to access public places and despite the criticism that this decision has aroused, the vaccination campaign has experienced real momentum.

The target set by the executive of 40 million first-time injections (75% of adults) and 35 million complete immunization schedules (two-thirds of adults) by the end of August is now largely achievable , as shown by figures from the Ministry of Health listed by the CovidTracker site. If we remain on the same dynamic as that observed over the last fifteen days (dotted in blue), the government’s objectives will be achieved by the end of the summer. So can collective immunity be a new short-term goal?
