France passes law on vaccination passport

According to the law, citizens will have no other way to obtain a vaccination passport other than by completing a full course of vaccinations. Residents of the country from 12 to 15 years of age can use the old rules of the sanitary passport, which allow the replacement of full vaccination with negative PCR tests.

The presentation of a vaccination passport may be accompanied by the presentation of an identity card.

For the use of a fake document, the law provides for three years in prison and a €45,000 fine or, in case of relapse, five years and €75,000. will be punished.

The government intends to introduce vaccination passports on the 20th of January. Opponents of the law can still prevent its entry into force — file an appeal with Constitutional Council.
