Macron delivers bad news to France: Vaccine passports, mandatory shots for health workers, AND unpopular pension reform

French President Emmanuel Macron has told his citizens that they’ll need to be vaccinated to visit bars and board trains, and health workers face mandatory Covid jabs. Macron will also push ahead with unpopular pension reforms.

In a televised address on Monday, Macron announced that coronavirus vaccinations will be mandatory for healthcare workers in France, and a “health pass” proving vaccination status, or a negative test for Covid-19, will be necessary to board a train or visit restaurants, theaters, bars and cinemas from August. All French people over 12 years old will need a pass.

"We will extend the health pass as much as possible to push as many of you as possible to get vaccinated," Macron said.
