While the fourth Covid-19 wave keeps on spreading across the world, especially in Europe, the vaccination campaign has been escalating for many months in France. As of Monday September 20, 2021, the first dose of vaccine has been given to 74.2% of the French population, and 70.3% of them are fully vaccinated.

Always more French are getting vaccinated against Covid-19. In France, the resurgence of the coronavirus epidemic and variants in a fourth wave, as well as the implementation of the health pass, encourage the population to get vaccinated. As of Monday September 20, 2021, CovidTracker.fr website stated 74.2% of the French population have been given one dose of vaccine.

Furthermore, Santé Publique France data show an encouraging result as for the number of French fully vaccinated. As of September 20, 70.3% of the French population have been given the doses required and now enjoy full vaccination. And there are still "at least 25.8% of the French to be vaccinated" before "reaching 100% vaccination".

Why reaching a threshold of 80% of French given the first injection? Simply because it is the percentage of the population given by experts and epidemiologists to reach herd immunity. But, CovidTracker.fr cautiously specifies “an 80% vaccination rate does not necessarily enable to reach herd immunity”. So far, the fight against the epidemic keeps going and is not about to end.
