Vaccination against Covid-19 will be mandatory in Austria from February, a measure that the new German government wants to adopt. In France, unvaccinated people currently represent around one-tenth of the eligible population.

75.4% of the French are vaccinated. Could the remaining 25% be forced to do so in the coming months? According to Olivier Véran, Minister of Solidarity and Health, the health and education pass are enough to convince. Mandatory vaccination is simply “not the choice that France has made.” With 50,000 cases of Covid-19 detected on Wednesday, December 1 in the country, some advocate a tightening of the rules. “We have been at the end of all educational and persuasive measures”, estimates Yves Buisson, epidemiologist and member of the National Academy of Medicine, who adds that “all pandemics stop when they find herd immunity.”

Some European countries have already made vaccination mandatory, such as Austria and Greece for those over 60, while Germany is considering it. There must be a debate, according to Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission. “How can we encourage and think about compulsory vaccination within the European Union? This needs to be discussed,” he said. The World Health Organization urges countries to accelerate their vaccination campaign and invites richer countries to share their vaccine doses with the poorest.
