May was the month of acceleration for the vaccination campaign. In Hauts-de-France, 1,366,712 injections were carried out last month, which corresponds to more than 44,000 daily injections. This figure has more than doubled compared to March (22,000 injections per day) and it increased by 50% compared to April (30,000 daily doses).
The region has thus passed the milestone of one million fully vaccinated inhabitants, which corresponds to one in five adults. More than half of the population (52%) has received at least one injection.
Even more deliveries
Coverage is particularly high among the first priority audiences. It approaches 90% for the 75-80 and 70-75 age groups and exceeds 70% for those 80 and over (73.6%) and 65-59 (73.4%).
And the pace will pick up. More than 360,000 doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines will be delivered each week in June to vaccination centers in the region.not. In total for the month, nearly two million doses are expected, or double the month of May.
