“We have reasons to hope that we can cancel the vaccination pass at the end of March, beginning of April.” Gabriel Attal, the spokesman for the French government, said this on Wednesday after a council of ministers.
On Monday, 24 January of this year, the “vaccinal pass” came into effect in France. Since then, anyone over the age of 16 who wants to participate in an event, go to a cafe or restaurant or take public transport must be able to prove that they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
In the meantime, the number of daily infections in France – just like with us – is evolving in a favourable direction, and consideration is already being given to abolishing the vaccination pass. “The decline has started, and we have reason to hope that we can lift the pass at the end of March, beginning of April,” Attal said. “The health situation may have improved sufficiently by then.”
Coincidence: the first round of the French presidential elections is scheduled for early April, more precisely on Sunday, 10 April.
