The Omicron variant, whose speed of propagation is "lightning around us in Europe", "will spread very quickly to the point of becoming dominant from the start of 2022" in France, warned Jean Castex.

A bill to transform the health pass into a "vaccine pass"

The health pass will become at the beginning of the year a "vaccine pass", which can only be activated with a complete vaccination schedule and no longer a simple negative test, announced Friday the Prime Minister Jean Castex. "From now on only vaccination will be valid in the past", insisted the head of government at the end of a health defense council. "A bill will be submitted to Parliament at the beginning of January in particular to transform the health pass into a vaccination pass, and tighten the conditions of control and sanctions against false passes", he continued.

"It is not admissible that the refusal of a few million French people to be vaccinated puts the life of an entire country at risk and undermines the daily lives of a vast majority of French people who have played along since the start of this crisis. », Hammered the head of government.

"I will proceed to the preliminary consultation on this project at the beginning of next week, as well as on any other useful measures to extend the vaccination as much as possible.

We assume that it is a constraint on the unvaccinated, because the critical care and resuscitation services of our hospitals are filled, for the most part, with unvaccinated people, ”explained Jean Castex.

MEP Gilbert Collard denounced a "control society".

The deadline for the recall is reduced to 4 months

The deadline for accessing the vaccine booster will be reduced to four months instead of five "from January 3," announced the Prime Minister.

New measures will be announced "to limit the risk of contamination as much as possible during the end of the year celebrations", continues Jean Castex.

“The prefects will ban wild gatherings and the consumption of alcohol on public roads” for the evening of December 31.
