The Constitutional Court of France today approved most of the provisions of the disputed law which introduces a certificate of vaccination in order to protect public health during a pandemic.
The parliament adopted the final text on Sunday, and the vaccination confirmation will be applied from Monday, January 24, as announced by Prime Minister Jean Castex.
Under the new law, all people over the age of 16 will need to have a vaccination certificate to enter entertainment venues, restaurants and bars, fairs and public transport that connects the provinces.
A negative test will no longer be enough, except for entering health facilities.
However, the possibility of the organizers of political rallies requesting a sanitary pass from the participants is censored.
At the call of the Disobedient France (radical left) group, some 60 representatives of various parties, as well as senators from the Socialist Party, asked the Constitutional Court to assess the constitutionality of the proposed law because they considered one provision to violate fundamental freedoms.
