All those over 18 will be eligible for vaccination against COVID-19 from June 15

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced that France is to open up COVID-19 vaccination to people over the age of 18 from June 15. 

People over 50 can meanwhile sign up for a jab from May 15, he added on Twitter, compared to an age limit of 55 currently. 

Health Minister Olivier Veran said earlier that vaccinations would be open this weekend to another four million people in France, with people aged 18-50 with chronic illnesses, such as heart conditions, high blood pressure or obesity, now eligible.
