France launches citizens’ collective to tackle widespread vaccine hesitancy

With one of the most vaccine-skeptic populations in the world, France has its work cut out for its vaccination campaign. According to recent polls, only 41 percent of the French population says they are “sure” they want to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

To boost the public’s confidence, the French government is doing something different: putting power in the hands of everyday citizens to help oversee the country’s vaccine rollout.

In November, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the creation of a citizens’ collective: 35 people chosen at random, coming from different geographic regions of the country, different socioeconomic backgrounds, and different opinions about vaccines.
