Persons aged 18 to 49, whatever their situation, may be vaccinated from 31 May 2021, 15 days before the date originally announced. The appointment will be available soon. They can be vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. Furthermore, this age-free opening is anticipated for professionals considered to be more exposed to the virus as a result of their activity who have been vaccinated since 24 May 2021.

People 18 years and older

Since May 12, 2021 and pending this opening, people aged 18 and over can already make an appointment at the vaccination centre for injections that take place the same day and the next day.

Early opening for some of the most exposed professionals

Professionals considered to be more exposed to the virus as a result of their activity may reserve a vaccination window on health or online appointment-making sites, for injections starting Monday, May 24, 2021.

Beyond May 31, 2021, the professionals exposed will also benefit from adapted solutions dedicated to them locally.

In parallel, a two-week experiment is being conducted with about 30 occupational health services to facilitate vaccination with the Moderna vaccine directly at the workplace.

How do I make an appointment at a vaccination centre?

You can make an appointment:

On the Internet: both appointments for both injections can be made on Health in the centre of your choice. The website is directly accessible from AllAntiCovid application .

By phone by calling:

  • the green number 0800 009 110, open 7 days a week from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm, which will direct you directly to the telephone platforms of the chosen vaccination centre;
  • the vaccination centre near you where you will have found the telephone number on the site Health which provides a complete list of centres open in each department.

  Please note : On the day of the appointment, you have to show up with an identity document and your vital card (or a certificate of rights) in order to give your social security number. Since January 28, 2021, a foreigner or a homeless person can be vaccinated in a vaccination centre even if they do not have a vital card.

If you have a previous positive result on Covid-19, you can present it on your first appointment. After your medical interview, your vaccination can be done in one dose of vaccine instead of two.
