France to Extend Covid Vaccination to All Adults From June 15

France will allow all adults to get vaccinated against the coronavirus from June 15, President Emmanuel Macron says in a tweet on Friday.

Starting this weekend, all “vulnerable” adults, and from May 15, all those above 50, will be entitled to get vaccination.

The President has pledged that all willing adults would get vaccinated by the end of the summer. While the government has been criticized for a slow start in the vaccination campaign, it’s now picking up. Around 22% of the French have received at least one jab, and close to 10% have received two doses.

On average, 393,672 doses are handed over each day, with a peak close to 550,000 shots on Thursday. At this pace, it will take another 6 months to cover 75% of the population, according to Bloomberg Covid Tracker.
