Not really surprising.
I don’t know if it is the same in France, but in the UK Press there are stories of anti-vaxxers dying from Covid and saying that they wish they had had the vaccine. Their families aren’t too impressed either.

There are the same sort of stories in the US press. The nursing staff have to tell them that it’s too late.

@Stella Thank you, the nearest to us is St. Jean de Cole which, when I passed through the other day was absolutely rammed with tourists. Also their (and others’) cars parked on both sides of the narrow street which made giving way to the long (100m) priority section very difficult. Nowhere to pull over.
