Vaccine pass and face mask

Vaccine pass

From January 24, 2022, the “vaccine pass” concerns anyone over the age of 16. The “vaccine pass” does not apply to minors aged 12 to 15. It is therefore the “health pass” – which includes the additional possibility of presenting proof of a negative test of less than 24 hours – which remains mandatory for this age group.

The vaccine pass is mandatory to take the ski lifts and access the mountain restaurants (including the terraces), for all people over 12 years and 2 months old.

Verifications of your vaccine pass will be carried out at the ski lifts and at the entrance to altitude restaurants.

For more information on the vaccination pass, visit the government website.

 

The vaccination pass consists of presenting, in numeric format (via « My Booklet » of the AllAntiCovid application ) paper, a health proof, of the following 3 (one of these 3 proof is sufficient):

  • The vaccination certificate, provided that persons have a complete vaccination plan (booster dose made within the time limit for persons aged 18 and 1 month who are eligible for it)
  • The result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid, more than 11 days and less than 6 months
  • The certificate of contraindication to vaccination

 

Face mask

Approved face masks (surgical or class 1 medical) or neck warmers must be worn from the age of 6 year old for all ski lifts (including in access/queuing queues and on board the ski lifts).

 

Rules to come into effect in France

  • Those who are 65 and over and who have been fully vaccinated for more than six months and five weeks will need to demonstrate that they have received an approved COVID-19 booster injection in order to access the health pass.
  • Those who are aged 18-64 years old and who have been fully vaccinated for more than seven months will need to demonstrate they have received an approved COVID-19 booster injection in order to access the health pass. The third dose will be mandatory to obtain the health pass.

 

Teenagers 12 to 15-year-old cannot be fully vaccinated and therefore cannot have an health pass to enter public places in France without taking a test every 24 hours.

The Val d’Isère Pharmacy is allowed to deliver health pass to the 12-15 years old who got covid + 1 shot of vaccine less than 6 month ago) :
