According to the latest media reports, It is expected that a vaccination pass ('pass vaccinal') will replace the previously valid health pass in many areas of public life starting upcoming Monday (17 January). To obtain the vaccine pass, proof of immunization (vaccination or recovery) is mandatory. A negative test will no longer be sufficient, with the exception of entering health care facilities and travelling to Corsica or French overseas territories.
Effective this Saturday (15 January) already, Individuals over 18 years of age need to prove they have had a booster shot 7 months after receiving their last vaccine dose in order for their health pass to remain valid. As of 15 February, the booster dose must have been administered no later than 4 months after completing the initial vaccination course. These rules apply to tourists and visitors as well.
The booster certificate is considered valid 7 days after receiving the booster dose.
