(#Boursier.com) – #Olivier Véran announced on #Thursday the opening of vaccination centers in cities as well as the acceleration of vaccination for healthcare workers, in response to criticism of the low number of people vaccinated since the start of the #Sunday campaign.

“#Before the beginning of #February, the first vaccination centers will open in the city, to start vaccinating people aged 75 and over, then 65 and over, etc.”, the #French #Minister of #Health said on #Twitter.

“#We have decided, at the same time, to accelerate the protection of priority audiences. #As of #Monday, caregivers aged 50 and over who wish to be able to be vaccinated in centers already having vaccines”, he added. .

These announcements come as the #French #National #Academy of #Medicine (ANM) on #Thursday called on health authorities to simplify and speed up the COVID-19 vaccination campaign, regretting “excessive” precautions.

#Since the start of the week, the government has suffered criticism from opposition parties and part of the medical profession in the face of the slowness of the vaccination campaign launched on #Sunday, which has so far affected only a few hundred people in #France, against several tens of thousands in the #United #Kingdom and #Germany. #He defends a “progressive” strategy which provides for a phase of collecting the prior consent of the people to be vaccinated and a withdrawal period.

#Too careful?

#Referring to “extreme caution”, the #Academy of #Medicine considers that “the first assessment (…) is difficult to defend in comparison with those of #European countries which have followed different strategic plans”.

#She also judges that the #French choices, supposed to reassure public opinion, “risk arousing a contrario a growing incomprehension vis-à-vis a campaign whose kick-off seems to lack determination”.

#Simplify the procedure

The ANM therefore recommends “to simplify and shorten as much as possible the vaccination procedures in nursing homes and similar establishments” while favoring the departments in which the spread of the coronavirus is currently the strongest.

#Before the publication of this press release, the #Minister #Delegate to the #Minister of the #Interior #Marlène #Schiappa had again defended the government strategy on franceinfo by ensuring that the target of one million people vaccinated by the end of #February was comparable to those other #European countries.

#Urgent hearing request

The president of the #Les Républicains (LR) group in the #National #Assembly, #Damien #Abad, and LR deputy #Eric #Ciotti, rapporteur for the #Assembly’s mission on the management of the epidemic, on #Wednesday requested an emergency hearing of the minister of #Health, #Olivier Véran.
