Saturday March 27 marks, in France, the starting point of an acceleration of the vaccination campaign against Covid-19, now open to people aged 70 and over.
Since Saturday March 27, the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 has been accelerating everywhere in France, thus meeting the expectations of Emmanuel Macron, who had asked during the week that the vaccination take place “morning noon and evening”. People over the age of 70 also now have access to vaccines against Covid-19. In Toulouse (Haute-Garonne), in front of the exhibition center, the queue was endless. All weekend slots have been reserved. Distrust of vaccines seems far away. “It gives us more freedom, especially for the holidays, but also to see our grandchildren”, confides a woman, now vaccinated.

Returning to a more normal life is the main source of motivation. 190 injections are given per hour, for a total of 2000 vaccinations in two days. For now, the Toulouse center only opens its doors on weekends. In Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône), the Vélodrome, the stadium of the Olympique de Marseille, has been transformed into a vaccination center. The crowds could make you think of a football game night. Places are expensive and enthusiasm is growing. Here too, the vaccination is done in the assembly line. The government still aims to vaccinate 30 million French people by the end of June.
