The rule may change. If the opinion is not yet final, the High Authority for Health (HAS) has paved the way towards the end of compulsory vaccination against Covid-19 among health professionals.
“In the current context, the vaccination obligation against Covid-19 could be lifted for all the professionals concerned”, estimated the HAS, in a draft opinion made public on its site. Before completing: “This Vaccination should however remain strongly recommendedin particular for professions for which a vaccination recommendation is currently in force for influenza”.
Before issuing an opinion at the end of March, the HAS will conduct a public consultation for a month as a result of the “societal importance” of this subject. Since 2021, all those who work in the hospital environment must be vaccinated against Covid in order to be able to practice their profession. Today, the executive has decided to rely on the HAS which has been seized on all the compulsory vaccines for caregivers. They also include those against hepatitis B, as well as diphtheria, tetanus, poliomyelitis (combined in the DTP vaccine).
