It’s Happening: France Vaxx Pass required in public spaces from August 1

July 14, 2021

“President Macron says only the immune can go to French bars and restaurants, makes Covid jabs compulsory for care workers and warns the country’s 4th wave has ALREADY begun in dramatic national address”

France is to make coronavirus vaccination passes compulsory for bars, cafés and restaurants, President Emmanuel Macron announced tonight.

In a dramatic TV address to the nation from Paris, Mr Macron said the spread of the Delta Covid variant meant tough new measures were essential.

He also said there would be ‘compulsory vaccinations’ for those working with ‘fragile people,’ such as the elderly and the disabled, as France moved towards 100 per cent vaccination.

Health experts fear that a fourth wave, once predicted for the autumn, has already begun in the country.

Mr Macron began his speech at 8:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday in optimistic mood, saying: ‘Thanks to the exceptional commitment of our caregivers, thanks to your good citizenship, we have managed to control the epidemic and breathe again.’

But he said there still had to be a balance found between the ongoing ‘need to protect lives’ and ‘freedom’.
