The following information is likely to be changed according to the COVID context (national & international). Please check this page from time to time.

We strongly recommend you to check which COVID certificates you need before coming to France and verify now which COVID vaccines are eligible in France. France accepts all the vaccines eligible in EU, but also Covishield: Pfizer/Comirnaty, Moderna/Spikevax, AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria/Covishield, Johnson&Johnson, Novavax/Nuvaxovid. A full immunization (with three doses) is highly recommended to facilitate both visit and stay in France. Any other vaccines are not accepted in France, but your stay can be possible if you are tested COVID-negative before boarding.

Note that MMiN society could recommend the wearing of a mask during the meeting according to the health context.
