Has anyone had their two Anti Covid vaccinations elsewhere than France (eg UK) and hoped to have them added to the record of vaccinations on their Carte Vitale?
A few days ago I approached my local Pharmacy to update my Carte Vitale and thought I’d take the opportunity to include my record of vaccinations. I received both my recant anti Covid vaccinations overseas (not India). The Pharmacist was as helpful as she could be but was at a loss how it could be done. She suggested the my local GP or the local hospital. The later directed me to the local Covid Centre.
At the Covid centre the receptionist said flatly that overseas vaccinations are not recognised. This was in spite of my certificate, signed by the administering GP, with full details of the vaccinations, down to the batch number. Nothing would dissuade the receptionist.
So I foolishly asked if then I could get the two anti Covid vaccinations a second time. Again she said flatly no.
So I asked what else I could do and her answer was to 'talk to the Consulate of the country in which i had received the vaccinations. So I asked what help would that be and her response was blank…
Surely there are others in France who received their anti Covid vaccinations in say the UK and were hoping to have the fact listed in their Carte Vitale, like any routine medication?
