France deactivates 4M vaccine passports, requiring 3rd booster jab to participate in society

At least four million French citizens who earned a vaccine passport by getting vaccinated last year are set to now have their vaccine passports revoked unless they obtain a booster shot, asap.

According to The Local, France’s original rules allowed vaccine recipients seven months from the date of vaccination to obtain a booster. But a new rule implemented on Feb. 15th cut the seven months to four starting immediately.

“That means that anyone who has not already had a booster shot, and for whom their second vaccine dose was more than four months ago, is no longer eligible for the vaccine pass,” The Local notes.

Below is a news video clip of a French woman complaining about the sudden policy change:

The rule applies to almost everybody, including tourists and visitors, though strangely enough, a booster shot isn’t required to enter the country.

“Boosters are not required to enter the country. At the border presentation of a certificate of full vaccination – in most cases two doses – is sufficient,” according to The Local.

“However, once you are in the country you need a vaccine pass if you intend to visit bars, cafés, ski lifts, cinemas, theatres, gyms, leisure centres, tourist sites, large events, sports matches or use long-distance trains, buses or domestic flights.”

The only ones spared from the booster rule are children between 16 and 18, in addition to those “who caught the virus after having” been vaccinated, according to RFI, a state-owned international radio broadcaster.

Those under 16 meanwhile aren’t required to have a vaccine pass, period.

RFI notes that an estimated four to 4.5 million French citizens “are not up to date with their vaccines.”

All this comes amid preliminary talks in France about requiring a second booster shot.

“French Prime Minister Jean Castex said on Thursday that France was ready to deploy a fourth COVID-19 vaccination or second booster shot as soon as health authorities gave their green light to such a move,” Reuters reported in early January.

The remarks were based on data coming out of Israeli. As of late February, another booster hadn’t yet been mandated.

Talk of a fourth shot has also reached the United States:

Unlike France, the U.S. hasn’t mandated booster shots. Not yet at least, though some reports have emerged suggesting that the Biden administration is seeking mandated annual booster shots.

The U.K. meanwhile has reportedly begun moving forward with offering a voluntary 4th shot to “care home residents and immunosuppressed individuals aged 12 and over,” in addition to everybody 75 and over.

Israel has been offering a 4th shot to anyone 60 and older since at least January, though reports suggest the extra booster hasn’t been all too effective.

“A fourth shot of the COVID-19 vaccine boosts antibodies but doesn’t provide enough protection to prevent infections from the Omicron variant, according to new research at an Israeli hospital. The preliminary results, released on Monday, challenge the idea of giving a second booster dose to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” according to WebMD.

In a statement, Dr. Gili Regev-Yochay summed up the findings as follows: “Despite increased antibody levels, the fourth vaccine only offers a partial defense against the virus. The vaccines, which were more effective against previous variants, offer less protection versus Omicron.”

Pharmaceutical companies have, for their part, pushed for more and more shots — presumably, according to critics, because of the profit motive.

In fact, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said last month that he’s rather fond of the idea of the world population being forever pharmaceutically immunized from the coronavirus.

“What I’m hoping [is] that we will have a vaccine that you will have to do once a year. Once a year it is easier to convince people to do it. It is easier for people to remember. From a public health situation, it is an ideal solution,” he said during an interview with an Israeli news publisher.

“We are looking to see if we can create a vaccine that covers Omicron and doesn’t forget the other variants. And that could be a solution unless something completely different comes out.”

The idea wasn’t well-received:
