France will start boost shot (3rd dose) of COVID-19 from September
France will start boost shot (3rd dose) of COVID-19 from September. French President Macron announced on Instagram that France will provide a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine for high-risk groups from September. He said that for the elderly and infirm, a third dose may be needed.
Yesterday, the World Health Organization called on the so-called booster injection not to be used for the time being to keep the people of its country free from the virus. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus believes that it is unreasonable for countries that already use a lot of vaccines to vaccinate more vaccines now. He hopes to provide more vaccines to poorer countries first, because many people there are usually not vaccinated at all.
In France, so far, more than 64% of the population has received the first dose of the vaccine for the first time, much higher than most poor countries, and 49% of French people have been fully vaccinated.
Despite repeated opposition from the World Health Organization, France is not the only country that has given the third shot. Israel is already administering additional booster injections for people with poor health. Germany and the United States are also conducting a third round of injections for risk groups. The Netherlands has not yet made a decision.
Regarding Tan Desai’s call for a moratorium on the third dose of the booster vaccine, White House spokesperson Shaqi told reporters: “We absolutely think this is a wrong suggestion, and we can do both.”
Shaqi pointed out that the United States has enough vaccine supplies to continue to distribute vaccines abroad while ensuring that every American is fully vaccinated.
