Health pass: “How can I assert my vaccine contraindication? “

Hello Patrick,

If you have a contraindication to vaccination, that you have not had the Covid and that you do not wish to carry out tests regularly, you will be able to obtain the health pass through a slightly different process.

In a decree published on August 8 in the Official Journal, the Prime Minister defined 6 cases of “Medical contraindication preventing vaccination against Covid-19” :

– a history of allergy to one of the components of the vaccine (with the attestation of an allergist);
– people who have already had episodes of capillary leak syndrome;
– people on treatment with anti-SARS-CoV-2 monoclonal antibodies;
– myocarditis or pericarditis occurring prior to vaccination and still progressive;
– a pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome appearing in children after contamination with Covid;
– side effects occurring after the first dose of vaccine (myocarditis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, anaphylaxis shock);

As you are affected by one of these contraindications, you will be able to request a “Certificate of medical contraindication”, which may, where appropriate, include a validity date. This document can be obtained from your doctor. Warning, the contraindication certificate does not replace the health pass and does not contain a QR code to certify a health pass “, reports the DGS.

You must then send the certificate to the health insurance organization to which you are attached, then the latter will give you yoursanitary pass. However, you will have to wait a bit, because this system will be implemented. “Around August 25”,specifies the General Directorate of Health (DGS). Any certificate already produced before this date will be converted into a health pass.

However, if you want to travel to Europe, your health pass obtained with the contraindication certificate will not be recognized by other countries. You will then have to carry out a negative test “Pending harmonization at European level”, indicates the DGS.


What about pregnant women?

Pregnancy is not among the contraindications vaccination against Covid-19. At first not recommended due to a lack of data, vaccination has been possible since July 20 for pregnant women from their first trimester of pregnancy. No particular risk was observed in those who received a dose of the vaccine during this period, especially those who did not yet know they were pregnant.

A health pass (negative test, proof of vaccination or certificate of immunity) will therefore be requested from pregnant women in places subject to this obligation.
