PARIS, May 15 ― French President Emmanuel Macron said in a Twitter statement today that 20 million people in France had now received at least one shot of a Covid-19 vaccine, as the government tries to step up its vaccination campaign.

The French government had set itself a target to give a first injection to 20 million people by mid-May, after a slow start to its campaign several months ago. It has now opened up the vaccination programme to a broader number of people. ― Reuters
