Nearly a quarter of the Ile-de-France vaccination centers will close in July and August, indicates Tuesday the regional health agency (ARS), which nevertheless assures that all the centers of Seine-Saint-Denis “should remain open “and plans to increase” special operations “.
As the major departures on vacation approach, all ARSs have been instructed to prepare their “business continuity plan” in terms of screening and vaccination against Covid-19. An exercise carried out with the mayors and prefects, both to anticipate summer demand and to guarantee a sufficient supply, taking into account the leave for caregivers and the desire of certain elected officials to recover the premises made available.
Results of the races: in Île-de-France, between July 5 and August 29, “the vaccine supply should be maintained at 82% of the injection capacity and 77% of the number of centers”.
“Go to” the public
The adjustment will not be the same in all Ile-de-France departments. Thus, “in Seine-Saint-Denis, 100% of centers should remain open during the summer”, the proportion decreasing in Val-de-Marne and Val-d’Oise (85%), in Seine-et- Marne (74%), in Essonne (73%), in Paris (70%), in Hauts-de-Seine (62%) and finally in Yvelines (42%). At the same time, the “to-go” approach will continue with “special operations” targeting “high-traffic areas” such as the Canopée des Halles in the heart of the capital, but also “special populations” (students, women pregnant, delivery drivers), or even “precarious groups” (migrant workers, slums).
The same goes for screening, with “specific actions” planned “on motorway areas” and the use of 315,000 self-tests in “risk sectors” such as hotels, campsites or leisure centers.
