PRACTICAL – Every night, the newscast TF1 examines the questions of the spectators in its section “Le 20H answers you”. On the menu, questions related to the health crisis.

Since the beginning of the health crisis, the newscast TF1 has analyzed the questions from viewers on “Le 20H vous responds” every night. On the daily menu: how many doses of vaccine should children 5 to 11 years old receive? Is an antigen test required before the booster dose? Can we organize a dinner with friends who are all infected with Covid-19 at the same time? Garance Pardigon answers these questions about the Gilles Bouleau set.

For children ages 5 to 11, how many doses of the vaccine are needed?

Two doses are enough, as specified in this opinion of the High Health Authority, on which the government relied to open vaccination to young children on December 22. Therefore, the principle for children 5 to 11 years is two injections, with an interval of 21 days. As for adults, adds Brigitte Virey, president of the French National Union of Pediatricians. On the other hand, for minors in good health, it is not a third dose. This is true even for teens who have received both of their injections. this summer. “We have already explained it to you in this article.

What if your child has already had Covid? In this case, you should only receive one injection. That is why your pediatrician will surely do a rapid serological test before the injection. It is recommended for minors since they are usually asymptomatic. “It is estimated that 30% of children have already contracted the disease without knowing it,” continues Brigitte Virey.

All the information about

Some pharmacies offer, or even require, an antigen test before administering the third dose to patients. Is it mandatory?

How could this be mandatory, not even recommended! Nothing on the Ministry of Health website mentions this pre-test. “It is clear that there is abuse by certain pharmacists, slices François Blanchecotte, president of the Union of Biologists. Even if nothing is settled immediately, Social Security will effectively reimburse the pharmacy … And in the end it is the taxpayer who pays. ”

Therefore, it is justified to reject any test, be it antigenic or PCR. Neither does a serological test. We will explain it to you in this article: a high level of antibodies does not exempt you from doing a third injection. The only exception: if you are in contact or have symptoms. “Antigen test or PCR. You have to do the test spontaneously, third injection or not,” explains Philippe Besset, president of the Federation of Pharmaceutical Trade Unions of France. If the result of this test is positive, your booster dose can only intervene in a minimum of three months. ”

If you are missing on your vaccination schedule, Social Security provides this simulator.

Can we safely meet between positive people, for example, can we organize a dinner with friends who all have Covid-19 at the same time?

Good question… Not all doctors and infectious disease specialists agree on this issue. Some say there is a risk of superinfection, such as Dr. Gérald Kierzek, Doctissimo Medical Director and TF1 / LCI Health Specialist: “There are currently several variants in circulation. Their immune system is already flat. They are already infected with the delta.” , it is very possible that it will catch the Omicron. ”

Bruno Grandbastien, a member of the Higher Council for Public Health, is more temperate: “If you are at the peak of the disease, you are not at much risk. It is also a classic technique in medicine to bring together all the sick. The same virus, in the same wing of a hospital for example “.

The General Directorate of Health resolves this issue by recalling the isolation instructions in the event of a positive result: “The objective of sanitary isolation is to reduce social contact: going to dinner with positive friends is like taking public transport, taxis (…), consequently increasing the number of opportunities to put others at risk. In conclusion, isolation at home is alone or with the home itself, in which case it is no longer isolation. “

The length of the isolation period to be observed depends, among other things, on your vaccination schedule. Everything is detailed here.
