  • Vaccination on 11 July 2022* (Vaccin Covid data) : 
    • Vaccination coverage for the booster shot stable at 74.9% in the population aged 18+ years and 84.8% in the 65+ age group.
    • Only 28.5% of 60-79 year-olds and 37.1% of 80+ year-olds eligible for the second booster shot had received it.
  • In the context of the summer holidays and activities conducive to increased transmission of the virus, compliance with the combined measures remains essential to protect the most vulnerable populations. The following precautions are particularly vital :
    • self-isolation in case of symptoms and a positive test for COVID-19
    • application of protective measures, including wearing a mask (around vulnerable people and in enclosed spaces favourable to transmission, especially public transport and large gatherings), and hand washing. In this period of persistent hot weather protection against high temperatures must be a priority. Ventilation of enclosed spaces should be limited to the cooler hours of the day.
