President Macron said all healthcare workers in France must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by September or risk not being paid.
He said: “I am aware of what I am asking of you, and I know that you are ready for this commitment, this is part, in a way, of your sense of duty.”
Anyone who comes into contact with vulnerable people will be required to get vaccinated.
This applies to all workers in hospitals, clinics and care homes – regardless of their roles.
Health Minister Olivier Véran told France’s LCI television these workers must be vaccinated by September 15 or risk not being paid.
