Did you plan to wait for Sanofi's French vaccine against Covid-19 to be put on the market to take the plunge?
Olivier Bogillot, president of Sanofi France, has a message for you: “Don't wait to get vaccinated!
Monday, August 9, on LinkedIn, the head of the pharmaceutical group, unexpectedly pleaded for the vaccines already available (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson): “I hear some say that they prefer to wait for the vaccine of Sanofi to get vaccinated.
I thank those who trust Sanofi but our vaccine will not arrive for several months.
Waiting only increases the risk and prolongs the circulation of the virus.
"Now is the time to get vaccinated!"
“Vaccines authorized by health authorities are safe and effective.
They save lives, spare serious consequences [from] Covid-19, and slow down its circulation.
They also protect hospitals from a new wave of avoidable hospitalizations, which allows them, let us not forget, to focus on non-Covid-19 patients who require care, ”said Olivier Bogillot, while hospitalizations linked to Covid-19 are on the rise in France.
And the president of Sanofi France concludes: “The coming weeks will be decisive for the start of September.
We all want to get out of this crisis, so I tell you in responsibility, do not wait, now is the time to get vaccinated!
