France intends to launch a national vaccination campaign against the coronavirus in January. Paris is preparing and hopes that the vaccines will then be approved and available, said a government spokesman to television channel France 2. The government has budgeted EUR 1.5 billion to buy vaccines in 2021.

However, the French Government is concerned that millions of citizens will refuse corona vaccinations, even when one of the vaccines appears to be effective at almost 95%. The American biotech company Moderna claimed 94.5% effectiveness in a clinical trial involving over 30,000 participants on Monday. The American pharmaceutical company Pfizer and its German partner BionTech reported last week that their vaccine was 90 percent effective.

An opinion poll conducted by Ipsos in September showed that only 59% of the French are willing to get vaccinated, compared to 74 percent worldwide. โ€œI fear that there will not be enough French people vaccinated,โ€ said Prime Minister Jean Castex last weekend.
