3rd dose: “How to make an appointment for a new injection against Covid?” “

Hello Éliane,

As with the first two injections of the Covid-19 vaccine, several possibilities are available to you to make an appointment:

► On dedicated platforms

Private platforms such as Doctolib, Keldoc and Maiia, allow you to make an appointment in a vaccination center, in a pharmacy, or in a doctor’s office. The government site sante.fr – accessible online and from the TousAntiCovid application – lists all the vaccination sites near you, and refers to these three appointment-making platforms when it is possible to book online . ViteMaDose, the site founded by Guillaume Rozier, the creator of Covid Tracker, offers the same service, and also references other online appointment booking services, such as mapharma.net and mesoigner.fr.

Some platforms, like Doctolib, offer you the possibility to choose the vaccine used. This time around, the choice will be limited: only messenger RNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) are currently indicated as part of the booster campaign for the third dose, including for people vaccinated with AstraZeneca and Janssen.

► By phone

The government has set up a toll-free number at 0 800 009 110, which can be reached seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. You will be asked to enter the five digits of your postal codeto be put in touchwith a vaccination center near your home.

► From certain health professionals

Last possibility to make an appointment: contact your doctor or a health professional authorized to vaccinate. Volunteer doctors, pharmacists, midwives and nurses are already authorized to vaccinate patients with the Moderna vaccine. From October 1, all these professionals will also be able to receive doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, as announced by the Ministry of Health on Tuesday, September 7.
