The indicators are on the rise.
This Saturday, July 24, an ephemeral vaccination center against Covid-19 had taken place in the shopping arcade of the E.Leclerc hypermarket in Cahors-Pradines. A real success with 500 people coming to be vaccinated. Michel Prosic, prefect of Lot, was satisfied that the trial had been transformed while taking stock of the health situation of the department: “The disease is progressing quickly. There were several clusters, the vast majority of family or friendly meals with 95% of people unvaccinated. The challenge today is to vaccinate 12-30 year olds. We give ourselves the means to go to people. There was a rush following the president’s announcements, which is why we have 4 centers with walk-in lines: Gourdon, Saint-Céré, Figeac, and Cahors. Like today, we will go where the people are, the locals, the tourists, the seasonal workers: in Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, in Rocamadour… On the Leclerc center, things have not been empty since this morning. “” 45 employees were vaccinated this morning. When the Prefect asked us to try this experiment, we said yes because we are also a public service company. We will start the same operation again on August 14, ”said Jean-Paul Marty, CEO.
