Vaccine: absolute record on Doctolib, which records more than a million appointments in one day

Even before the announcements of the Minister of Health, the online medical appointment platform Doctolib recorded attendance records. They were beaten Thursday, November 25, with 1.25 million appointments made in 24 hours for a third booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Olivier Véran announced that day at a press conference that this vaccine booster would condition the validity of the health pass for adults from January 15 (December 15 for people 65 and over). As a result, the platform was overloaded for several hours, announcing waiting times of thirty minutes to access the appointment form.

Vaccination centers will reopen

Concerning the places of vaccination, “There are more than 1,000 centers open today, we are going to reopen 300”, said Olivier Véran, guest of 8 pm TF1 Thursday evening. It is also possible to be vaccinated at a general practitioner, in a pharmacy, or in medico-social centers or health centers. “In the next two months, all French people will have had the opportunity to be vaccinated near their homes”, assured the minister.

From Monday, November 29, the PCR tests that give access to the health pass will have a validity period reduced to twenty-four hours. France is also studying the possibility of vaccinating children aged 5 to 11 against Covid-19, but in any case, this will not happen before “Early 2022”.
