- Story Text: French government spokeperson Gabriel Attal on Wednesday (August 25) said the country's high vaccination is helping to 'stabilise' COVID injections.
Around 70 percent have received their first dose, and 56.5 percent have received their second.
France's Haute Autorite de Sante (HAS) health watchdog said on Tuesday (August 24) it recommended a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot for those aged 65 and over and for those with existing medical conditions that could put at them serious harm from COVID.
These COVID vaccine booster shots should be rolled out from the end of October onwards, it added.
