French President Emmanuel Macron announced today that he and his wife, First Lady Brigitte, have been vaccinated against the new coronavirus.
In a series of publications on Twitter, the French leader also called for all citizens of the European country to take the immunizers.
“Vaccinated! Like Brigitte and I, like 25 million Frenchmen, get vaccinated! To protect us, to protect our family members,” wrote Macron without revealing which vaccine he and Brigitte received.

The French president and the first lady contracted the coronavirus last December and recovered without complications. The two respected the recommendation of health authorities to wait at least three months after contracting the disease to be vaccinated.
At 43, Macron received the dose of the vaccine after France started the vaccination campaign for all over 18 years of age and categories. The country uses the following immunizers: Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna, Oxford / AstraZeneca and Janssen.
So far, France has applied the first dose to 25.4 million people – 48% of its adult population and 38% of the total population. In total, about 12 million Frenchmen received the two doses, according to government data.
The covid-19 pandemic has left 109.5 thousand deaths and 5.7 million cases in French territory since the start of the health emergency. In the past few weeks, the data has slowed, and the government has decided to reduce the restrictions in stages.
