Vaccination: is the increase in vacant slots a “little alert” for the rest of the campaign?
THE CHEKING PROCESS – The president of ARS Île-de-France was concerned about the large number of vacant slots in the centers for getting vaccinated. But does that mean a slowdown or even a failure of vaccination?
THE QUESTION. 29 million French people have now received at least one dose of the anti-Covid-19 vaccine. Almost 600,000 doses are injected per day on average. Despite these encouraging figures, the authorities have expressed concern over a recent increase in the number of vacant slots in vaccination centers.
The alert was launched by the Director General of the Regional Health Agency (ARS) Île-de-France Aurélien Rousseau, Wednesday, June 9 on his Twitter account: “Small alert and sudden emotion: there are still vaccination slots in many centers. Now is the time to score the decisive points against the virus. We have the doses, all adults are eligible and the centers are fully mobilized despite exhaustion! ”
During his visit to a hotel school in Drôme, the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron also showed some concern about a possible shift in the vaccination campaign: “Today I see municipalities telling me: ‘it is difficult to make appointments’. Because deep down, people who were scared got vaccinated, and then, as things seem to be getting better, people who were wondering don’t go. We must continue to mobilize the entire country. The vaccine is the only way to get us out of the epidemic. ” And to give the example of neighboring countries where, for lack of a fairly massive vaccination, the Covid-19 epidemic is already on the rise.
But is the current number of vacant slots in vaccination centers really alarming? Does it really reflect a risk of a sharp slowdown in vaccination in the country?
