The vaccination campaign against Covid started in France

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.

President Macron was found to be virus-positive on 17 December, he is now fine.

According to a report published last week, only 40 percent of the French said they definitely or perhaps wanted vaccination.

The French government has drawn up a plan to vaccinate citizens on a voluntary basis and to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.

So far, 26,16,510 cases of coronavirus have been reported in France and there have been 62,867 deaths.
