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 Tuesday October 5, 2021, the first dose of vaccine has been given to 75.2% of the French population, and 72.8% of the population is 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 Tuesday October 5, 2021, CovidTracker.fr website stated 75.2% 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 October 2, 72.8% of the French population have been given the doses required and now enjoy full vaccination. And there are still "at least 24.8% 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.
