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, Sciences 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, May 31: the vaccination campaign maintains the speed acquired in recent weeks for the first dose, thanks to the opening of vaccination to non-priority groups, and accelerates sharply for the second dose. All metropolitan areas are approaching or already exceeding 40% of their population having received at least one dose. This figure has stagnated at around 10% for the overseas regions, except Reunion which is almost at 20%.
Nearly 20% vaccinated in most regions
The rate increases significantly for the second dose, doubling the rate observed last week in several regions. According to Public Health France, a total of 25,800,383 people have already received the first dose of one of the vaccines (38.5% of the population) and 12,163,633 are already fully vaccinated (18.1%).

Note: The vaccination data used here now comes from raw Public Health France (SPF) data and not 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.
Vaccination now concerns all adults
As of this week, all adults have access to vaccination, as well as people 16 years of age and over suffering from a very high-risk pathology of severe form of Covid-19:
with cancer and malignant haematological diseases during treatment with chemotherapy,
with severe chronic kidney disease, including dialysis patients,
transplanted solid organs,
transplanted by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation,
with chronic multiple pathologies and presenting at least two organ failure,
suffering from certain rare diseases and particularly at risk in the event of infection (see the list),
with trisomy 21,
with cystic fibrosis.
And relatives (i.e. people living under the same roof or providing assistance in daily life) aged 16 and over severely immunocompromised (on dialysis, having received an organ or bone marrow transplant, treated with medication strong immunosuppressants).
