The High Authority for Health (HAS) recommends, in a opinion published on Wednesday May 25, a booster vaccine against Covid-19 in the fall for people most at risk of severe forms of the disease, in particular people aged 65 and over, as well as immunocompromised people and their entourage .

“Even if the current data seem to show that the epidemic is stabilizing in France, it is highly likely that the circulation of the virus will periodically re-intensify.”

in its opinion of 25 May

The evolution scenario “most likely” of the health crisis is, in the eyes of HAS, that of an impact “lesser” of virus circulation, although “always active”, “thanks to a lasting and sufficient immunity making it possible to limit serious forms and deaths”.

“It is therefore necessary to be ready to anticipate the pessimistic scenario for which a large-scale vaccination campaign should be quickly organized”, again warns the High Authority for Health. For “mobilization and logistical reasons”she suggests coupling this new vaccination campaign against Covid-19 with that against the flu.
