VIDEO. Vaccination: “We must concentrate our efforts in the departments where the epidemic is raging,” said the president of Seine-Saint-Denis
Stéphane Troussel, socialist president of the departmental council of Seine-Saint-Denis, calls Thursday on franceinfo for a territorialized strategy to fight against the Covid-19 coronavirus.
“We must concentrate our efforts” vaccination against the Covid-19 coronavirus “in the departments where the epidemic is raging”, asked Thursday April 1 on franceinfo Stéphane Troussel, socialist president of the departmental council of Seine-Saint-Denis. He believes that he “We must have a territorialized and different strategy depending on the situation in the territories and social and professional situations”. “Justice and equality has never been to treat everyone the same”, according to him.

The elected socialist stresses that “the incidence rate in Seine-Saint-Denis and in Val-d’Oise is around 800. It is 100 per 100,000 inhabitants in Creuse, Finistère or Landes”. He considers that in departments like his “we can see that more must be done” than vaccinating people over 70 years of age. Stéphane Troussel points to the fact that “the proportion of people aged over 75 is lower in Seine-Saint-Denis than in Creuse” and that the youngest departments must be taken into account.

The socialist president of the departmental council of Seine-Saint-Denis considers that “teachers, catering and maintenance staff in schools, non-teleworking professions, the first on duty must be urgently vaccinated in the departments where the virus is actively circulating”. He particularly emphasizes the case of teachers who “are very young” in Seine-Saint-Denis and who do not fall into the category of over 50s, whose vaccination will be authorized from May 15. “Why not take advantage of the interruption” lessons “to immediately start the vaccination of teachers”, suggests Stéphane Troussel.
