The peak of the 7th wave has largely passed, we are in the middle of the summer trough in August… Everything is in place for the rate of vaccination against Covid-19 to mark time. Only 55,000 doses are administered each day, the vast majority of second booster doses, ie half as many as in mid-July.
The pace could pick up again at the start of the school year. The arrival of a probable 8th wave could encourage a certain number of inhabitants to reach out once again. In addition, the High Authority for Health could recommend a new booster dose for frail people, or even extend the target to adults without comorbidities. Everything will depend in particular on the vaccines available, potentially more effective – especially against infection – than those with messenger RNA (Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna) currently used. Four new products are expected in September or October by the Ministry of Health, the latter indicated on July 20. Here they are.
