By decree of the French Ministry of Health, published Thursday, September 23, 2021, the French authorities have extended the legal definition of the complete vaccination schedule to people who can prove that they have received two doses of a vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization.
This new measure is subject, however, to conditions, including the injection of a third dose recognized by the European Medicines Agency.
Thus, people vaccinated against Covid-19 in Turkey with 2 doses of the Coronavac vaccine (Sinovac) must take an additional dose of a “messenger RNA” vaccine recognized by the European Medicines Agency to be considered a complete vaccine.
Currently, Turkey only administers the Biontech vaccine as a “messenger RNA” (mRNA) vaccine.
In addition, it will take 7 days after the third dose for their vaccination schedule to be valid.
With this change, citizens will therefore be able to benefit from facilities such as travel between Turkey and France without a compelling reason and obtain the French “sanitary pass”.
However, the chief scientist of the World Health Organization had warned, in July, against injecting the same person with different vaccines against Covid-19, believing that it is about a “dangerous trend”, as data is currently insufficient to measure its impact on health.
