PARIS| A 78-year-old woman took the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in France, and with this, the vaccination campaign against the virus began in the country. According to the Xinhua report, the woman who took the vaccine was the first housekeeper and is now working in a hospital in north Paris.
The woman said after taking the vaccine at a hospital in the Seine-Saint-Denis department in the Severn area on Sunday, I am fine, all right.
As the vaccination campaign began, President Emanuel Macron tweeted, We have a new weapon against the virus: the vaccine. The vaccine will not be mandatory. We should trust our researchers and doctors.
