Without being among the 200 mayors who signed a manifesto for the vaccine, Jean-#Pierre Le Scornet says he is ready to be vaccinated to set an example. Because the French, them, remain suspicious if we are to believe recent opinion polls.
A study BVA, published in the JDD, shows that only 44% of French people intend to be vaccinated, one of the lowest proportions among 32 countries studied. A survey Ipsos Global Advisor published Tuesday even grants France the place of “world champion” of the refractory countries, ahead of Russia and South Africa.
The PS mayor of Mayenne believes that the population, of all ages, can be vaccinated as soon as possible.
At the initiative of Karl Olive, at the head of the town of Poissy in Yvelines, 200 mayors of France have pledged to be vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus to set an example. And “the government hopes to vaccinate 15 million people by this summer”, “trust cannot be decreed, it must be earned” write the signatories.
“The French have confidence in their mayor. Our example and our encouragement can convince tomorrow of those who are feverish today” these elected officials conclude.
