Covid-19 - French Employment law - Vaccination in companies by work doctors : how does it work? –CHHUM AVOCATS Law Office (Paris, Nantes, Lille)
The DGT (Direction Générale du Travail) first recalls that “in accordance with the recommendations of February 2, 2021 from the High Authority for Health (HAS), it was decided that as of February 25, 2021, the AstraZeneca vaccine would be used for the vaccination of people aged 50 to 64 included with co-morbidities ”.
In addition, "the health authorities have decided to make this possibility available to occupational physicians, who will be able to vaccinate volunteer employees from member companies that are part of the aforementioned target".
The DGT asks occupational physicians to respect the recommendations of the health authorities regarding the prioritization of target audiences in the vaccination campaign and to respect the ethical rules applying to any act of vaccination (respect for the consent of the person, medical confidentiality , etc ...)
Indeed, for all medical data collections, screenings or even here vaccination, respect for consent and medical confidentiality remain in place, even in these times of Covid-19.
