What is a sanitary pass?

The “health pass” consists of the presentation, digitally (via the TousAntiCovid application) or on paper, of one of the following three health proofs

 

1. Vaccination, provided that people have a complete vaccination plan and the necessary time after the final injection, i.e. :

 

7 days after the 2nd injection for double injection vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca).

28 days after injection for single injection vaccines (Johnson & Johnson)

7 days after injection for vaccines in people with a history of Covid (single injection).

 

Since 27 May, all vaccinated persons can collect their vaccination certificate on the Health Insurance teleservice https://attestation-vaccin.ameli.fr . In addition, any health professional can retrieve a vaccination certificate and print it if a person requests it.

 

2. The certificate of a negative test less than 72 hours old

 

All RT-PCR, antigenic and supervised self-tests generate a proof as soon as the result is entered by the healthcare professional in SI-DEP, which can be printed out on-line and which is also made available to the patient via an e-mail and an SMS to be retrieved on the SI-DEP portal (https://sidep.gouv.fr). On TousAntiCovid, the import of the proof into the application is done by the patient.

 

3. The result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid-19, dating back at least 11 days and less than 6 months.

 

Positive RT-PCR or antigenic tests older than 11 days and less than 6 months (considered to date) indicate a limited risk of re-infection with Covid-19.
