From lundi 9 août, the health pass is compulsory to surrender to the restaurant, the bars, the salons, the costumes for long distances by train or by plane or encore à l’hôpital, from the cadre of the visit d ‘someone close. But some people for whom the vaccine is contraindicated can escape this obligation. Here is the list of situations that exempt you from a health pass.
A decree, published in the official gazette on August 8, specifies the list of medical situations that allow obtaining a certificate of contraindication to anti-Covid vaccination. Pregnant women can already be vaccinated in the first trimester, as Health Minister Olivier Véran announced on July 20. Therefore, the onset of pregnancy is not mentioned among the contraindications in the text.
However, people with specific allergies are concerned. The decree thus mentions a “history of allergy to one of the components of the vaccine, in particular polyethylene glycols and due to the risk of cross allergy to polysorbates” but specifies that it must be documented by an allergist.
Administration of the vaccine is also contraindicated for people who have experienced serious reactions or side effects after the first injection. It may be an “anaphylaxis reaction of at least grade 2 (damage to at least 2 organs) (…) arising after the allergological experience.”
But this also affects people who have experienced side effects of “severe or severe” intensity after the first dose, and for whom the medical profession does not recommend the second dose. The decree cites examples of myocarditis or Guillain-Barré syndrome.
“People who have already had episodes of capillary leak syndrome” can also be exempted from vaccination, as can children who have developed pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome (PIMS) after previous contamination with SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for Covid-19. .
Finally, two temporary contraindications are listed in the decree. They refer to people treated with monoclonal antibodies against Covid-19, as well as patients who suffered from myocarditis or pericarditis before the vaccine but “still in evolution”.
