Vaccination pass: “Should 16-17 year olds receive a third dose? »

Hello Francois,

If the vaccination pass, which came into force on Monday February 24, is required from the age of 16, a third injection is not compulsory for 12-17 year olds. “Only people aged 12 to 17 with comorbidities or who are immunocompromised are eligible for a booster vaccination five months after their last vaccination or infection”, specified the Prime Minister, Jean Castex, on December 7, 2021.

Thus, adolescents aged 16 or 17, vaccinated with two doses will be able to benefit from the precious sesame, allowing them to access certain places (restaurant, cinema, museum, etc.) or to take the train and the plane.

Those over 18 must now have received their booster dosewithin seven months of their last injection to keep their pass valid. This period will be reduced to four months from February 15.

What about minors aged 12 to 15?

The vaccination pass is not required for minors aged 12 to 15. The latter remain subject to the sole obligation of the health pass. They will therefore be able to go to a restaurant, the cinema, or attend a show by presenting the negative result of a PCR or antigen test.
