Do I have to deregister if I refuse an invitation for vaccination against Covid-19?

The Ministry of Health sends out invitations for the Covid-19 vaccination. But do I have to deregister if I refuse the vaccination? Democratic Party MPs Gilles Baum and André Bauler have asked the Minister of Health.

« Depuis le 1er janvier 2021, le ministère de la Santé a envoyé 5.226 invitations à la vaccination contre le Covid-19 aux groupes prioritaires. Jusqu’au 20 janvier, 1.637 personnes ont répondu à l’invitation et ont été vaccinées. 

Donc, un grand nombre des personnes contactées n’ont pas pris de rendez-vous pour la vaccination, ce qui signifie que le vaccin est disponible pour d’autres personnes. 

Dans ce contexte, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé:

  • Les personnes qui demandent la vaccination doivent-elles se désinscrire si elles ne veulent pas se faire vacciner ?  
  • Dans l’affirmative, quel est le délai fixé pour se désinscrire ? 
  • Combien de refus sont attendus en pratique jusqu’à ce que le prochain groupe de personnes puisse être immédiatement traité, afin de perdre le moins de temps possible et de vacciner le plus de personnes possible ? »

Answer

People will be invited by post mail to get vaccinated. It is their choice whether to do so or not. They are not automatically registered, so no one needs to unsubscribe.
