The first vaccines will arrive in the department on Thursday, January 7, then will be carefully kept in a fridge, the location of which is kept secret. 5,000 doses will then arrive on Tuesday, January 12 for the second wave of vaccination.
The public of nursing homes is targeted, and next week the campaign will be extended to health professionals over 50 years of these structures, but also to liberal doctors. Caregivers under the age of 50 who suffer from a pathology may also be vaccinated.
As a reminder, France has chosen to administer the vaccine, that of Pfizer / BioNTech, in two doses.
