The vaccination pass will come into effect in France on Monday. Anyone over sixteen who wants to participate in an event, go to a cafe or restaurant or take public transport will have to prove that they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
A negative test is only sufficient for those who visit a doctor or a hospital.
The vaccination pass changes the situation and makes it possible to resume normal activities,” Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, the French minister of SMEs and Tourism, told radio station Europe 1 on Sunday.
The government has also announced easing for February. From February 2, the mouth mask obligation outside the home and the mandatory telework will expire. From February 16 the nightclubs will open again, and you can drink at the bar in the cafes again.
It is difficult to estimate how many people will not receive a vaccination pass because those who have had Covid-19 in recent months will also receive a pass.
On Saturday, about 40,000 people protested against the vaccination pass in France, according to the Ministry of the Interior.
