France once again allows Spaniards who do not have residency to be vaccinated after having banned it for a few hours

In this town, the morning has been lived with uncertainty. If at 8.30, as explained by those responsible for the vaccination center to, the prefecture of the region in which the town is located gave an order to stop vaccinating Spaniards without residence in France, minutes before 11.00, they again received a call from the same authority to accept anyone again.

However, those responsible for the center have explained that they do not know if this new decision will be maintained beyond today, or if, on the contrary, the French authorities will restrict vaccines again. “It is something that has to be resolved between the two countries.
