IN CURVES. Covid-19: vaccination rates by region as of April 7

The vaccination campaign against Covid-19 in France began on December 26, 2020. To get a clear idea of ​​the progress of this campaign in each region, Science and the Future publishes every week the percentage of people vaccinated by region (calculated from vaccination data communicated by Public Health France and the population of each region according to INSEE population estimates at 1er January 2020).

As of Monday, April 5: the vaccination campaign maintains the speed acquired last week for the first dose (except for Martinique which by a jump reached 5% of its population) and accelerates for the second. The majority of metropolitan regions now reach 15% of their population for the first dose, with Corsica still in the lead (nearly 20%), and Île-de-France still last (nearly 12%).

Almost 5% of people in metropolitan France have been fully vaccinated

This difference is even more pronounced for the second dose, where Corsica is approaching 8% after having given this second dose to nearly 2% of its population in one week. Despite an acceleration, Île-de-France remains last (less than 4%) while the majority of metropolitan regions already exceed 5%. Overseas, only Reunion exceeds 2% for this second dose. According to Public Health France, a total of 9,356,301 people have already received the first dose of one of the vaccines (nearly 14% of the population) and 3,120,634 have already received the two doses (4.65%).

Note: The vaccination data used here now comes from raw data from Public Health France (SPF) and not from those communicated by the Ministry of Health. As SPF warns on this site, there are still discrepancies between the data from the Regional Health Agencies (ARS) and those reported to SPF, so it is possible that the data in this graph is not completely up to date.
