French Senate passes curtailed version of ‘vaccine pass’ bill

France24 says France’s Senate voted early Thursday morning to pass an amended version of a bill that would transform the country’s health pass into a stricter “vaccine pass”.

The bill passed around 2:30 am Thursday by 249 votes to 63, with 26 abstentions. The vote, chaired by Senate President Gerard Larcher of the right-wing Republicans, followed two long days of relatively calm debate, contrasting with the turbulent climate that had surrounded the bill’s adoption last week in the National Assembly.

Under the bill, French residents will be required to prove their vaccination status to access restaurants and bars, cultural venues, or interregional public transport. A negative Covid-19 test will no longer be sufficient, except for access to health facilities and services.
