The French government will present a bill on a vaccine passport on Monday (December 27), French government spokesman Gabriel Attal said on Tuesday (December 21).
 
The bill was originally supposed to be presented on January 5, but the French government "decided to move faster on the schedule", Attal said.

Attal added that the government would hope to see the law adopted by the Parliament in early January, instead of late January.
 
French Health Minister Olivier Veran said Omicron was currently suspected to account for up to 10% of new coronavirus cases and that could rise to more than 50% early next year.
 
"The figures are probably higher today... In Paris, to be specific, more than one in three infections seems to be linked to Omicron," Attal said.
 
The government has rolled out a booster campaign to stem the spread of the new variant. About 76.3% of France's total population have been vaccinated with two doses, according to the government. In the U.S., 61.6% have received two jabs.
