France: Only 500 People Willing to Take COVID-19 Vaccine

French President Emmanuel Macron faced growing pressure to accelerate France’s Covid-19 vaccination drive, because only about 500 people have accepted the vaccine, out of a population of nearly 67 million, after the rollout began a week ago. This is compared to 200,000 vaccinations reported in Germany. An increasing number of people in the EU are asking why they should participate in a test of an unverified vaccine. The rise in allergic reactions to the vaccine is a serious obstacle to popular acceptance. A November survey of 15 countries showed that 54% of the French population would accept a COVID vaccine if one were available. The figure was 64% in Italy and Spain, 79% in Britain, and 87% in China. A more recent poll showed that only 41% people in France would take the shot. The majority is not interested. -GEG

President Emmanuel Macron on Monday faced growing pressure to accelerate France’s Covid-19 vaccination drive which has seen just a few hundred people receive the jab, with the French leader himself reportedly livid over the sluggish pace.

Just over 500 people have received the vaccine so far in France, with critics pointing to the figure of 200,000 people who have been immunised in Germany in a similar timeframe after the EU-wide rollout began a week ago.

“What we have seen is a government scandal,” Jean Rottner, the head of France’s Grand Est eastern region, which has seen a particularly sharp rise in infections, told France 2 television.

“Things need to accelerate,” said Rottner, a member of the right-wing Republicans (LR) opposition party. “The French need clarity and firm messages from a government that knows where it is going. It is not giving this impression.”

With pressure growing on Macron to take personal responsibility for the situation, the Elysee said the president would host a meeting later Monday with officials including Prime Minister Jean Castex to discuss the vaccine rollout.

The situation is worsened by a scepticism about vaccinations in France that is far higher than in other countries, despite being the country that produced Louis Pasteur, the 19th century scientist who pioneered immunisation.

According to an opinion poll by Ipsos Global Advisor in partnership with the World Economic Forum last week, just 40 percent of French want to take the vaccine compared with 77 percent in Britain.

False Claims Still Being Spread about the Capitol Riot

February 22, 2021 Glen Greenwald 2

The pattern of calling the Capitol incident an armed insurrection is a gross mischaracterization of what actually happened. False narratives are being used to militarize Washington, DC. Both parties are still exploiting it for a new domestic War on Terror. And the FBI is on the prowl for so-called dissidents.

I’d believe the French people over and above any politician, and way more than any vaccine manufacturer. How can we trust a vaccine maker that says “don’t worry about people dying right after they get our shot”.
