Surveys show that there is little doubt about the new vaccine among French people. This is why the government is cautious and is not mandating vaccination. The government hopes that 2.7 million people will be vaccinated by summer.

The country has a population of 67 million. In France, 62,570 people have died due to the Coronavirus. Nearly a third of deaths occurred in nursing homes. So the government has decided to give the vaccine first to the elderly and health workers.
