Sinopharm, Sinovac, Sputnik, Covishield… In France, these vaccines against Covid-19 are little known, but, in other countries, they are authorized and injected. Problem, these serums are not recognized as effective in France. Indeed, the European Medicines Safety Agency, then its French counterpart (ANSM) has authorized four vaccines: those from Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen. So how can a French abroad obtain the precious health pass before returning to France if he has obtained a dose of another serum? Should he make a new injection with a messenger RNA vaccine before setting foot on French soil?
The subject, quite complex, can worry some expatriates who wish to return to France… and to be able to go to a restaurant. While the health pass is about to become a vaccination pass in the coming days, some are wondering about the requirements of France … and the means to obtain a new dose in order to present a complete vaccination schedule.
If you are an expatriate and vaccinated with another of the four vaccines accepted in France, have you encountered any difficulties in traveling? What did you do to obtain a health pass? Are you able to get an appointment for a third dose with the current influx? Have you got encountered other difficulties? Do you have questions about switching to the vaccine pass?
