The rate of positive tests is the number of positive tests divided by the total number of tests over the past seven days.

Data provided immediately after weekends and bank holidays is lower than average. This is due to the testing facilities mainly being closed during these times.

Note: The graph updates automatically and is sometimes updated a day behind the figures given above, which are updated manually each day. The date is given in the graph and is also indicated above our daily updated figures. If the figure of the daily number of Covid-19 cases given above does not match with the most recent figure marked on the graph below, this is probably due to the fact that the graph's data is yet to update.

Covid vaccine latest figures for France

More than 54 million people have received at least a first dose of a Covid vaccination. This accounts for more than 80.8% of the population in France.

Everyone over the age of five can now be vaccinated in France, although children are being given doses adapted specially for their age group.

Covid booster vaccines have been rolled out across France for all people aged over 12. 

Only the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are being used for booster doses. Moderna is only being given to people aged 30 and over and is the vaccine normally used for people in this age group.

To be eligible for a booster dose you must be: 

  • Over 12
  • Fully vaccinated, with the last dose having been given at least three months ago (four weeks ago in the case of the single-shot Janssen vaccine) 
  • Those who have only had one vaccine dose because they have previously contracted Covid may get a booster dose from three months after their initial vaccination or Covid infection

France's vaccine and health pass systems have now come to an end, so people do not need to show proof of vaccination or of a negative Covid test result in order to enter different venues.

What are the rules for wearing masks in France?

Masks are no longer mandatory in outdoor settings. On July 31, rules on wearing masks in health and care settings such as hospitals came to an end. However, people entering such spaces are still advised to use a face covering. 

They are not currently required on public transport but are still recommended. 

What are the rules around Covid tests in France?

Tourists to France must pay for any Covid tests unless they have a doctor’s prescription from the last 48 hours and/or have been identified as a close contact case by the health authorities. 

For residents, antigen and PCR tests are free for those fully vaccinated or medically exempt from vaccination. Self-administered kit tests are payable (maximum selling price of €5.20).

Anyone who is identified as a close contact of a confirmed Covid case must take a self-administered, antigen or PCR test on the second day after being alerted.

If the test comes back positive (antigen and self-test results must be confirmed by a PCR) you must self-isolate for five days if you are fully vaccinated, after which time if you test negative and have no symptoms you may leave your quarantine. If you are not fully vaccinated you will need to self-isolate for seven days before taking the test. Further information is available (in French) here.
