Emmanuel Macron announced on May 6 that the French will be able to make an appointment the day before for the next day to be vaccinated against Covid from May 12. They will thus be vaccinated with unused doses of vaccine.

In addition, all people over 50 will be able to be vaccinated from May 10, instead of May 15 as planned so far. This should make it possible to accelerate the vaccine campaign against the Covid. The head of state said that the appointments can be made from tomorrow Friday, May 7.
