The first phase of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign will begin on Sunday, November 27 in France. Priority audiences have been identified, particularly the elderly in nursing homes or specialized centers, such as at the Dijon geriatric center. For France Télévisions, Nora Boubetra was live from René-Muret hospital in Sevran (Seine-Saint-Denis), which will also be one of the first establishments to be vaccinated.
“These centers accommodate very sick and vulnerable people,” says the journalist. “It is not a random choice, they are a priority, especially in Seine-Saint-Denis, there is a high rate of excess mortality” . These units are backed up by hospitals to prevent any risk in the event of side effects. About ten elderly people out of 90 will be vaccinated, but none will be without its approval. “A second injection should take place three weeks later”, concludes Nora Boubetra. France has nearly 7,000 nursing homes.
