France released video to encourage vaccines and went viral | Digital Trends Spanish
The government of France has launched a vaccination campaign against COVID-19 that, appealing to nostalgia, has gone viral not only in the country but throughout the world.
It is a one minute long video showing what could be done again if everyone gets vaccinated, achieving herd immunity and returning to a new normal; all, with a background music whose lyrics say freedom (“Liberty”).

The video shows several massive activities that can be carried out again once a large part of the population already has immunity to the coronavirus. This was posted on Twitter by Olivier Véran, the French government’s health minister, along with a comment saying that “with every vaccination, life begins anew” and inviting everyone to go for their dose.
The video’s universal message made it go viral and quickly reached more than two million views. Also, there is an interesting detail in the fact that an inoculation is shown in the foreground and in a very explicit way, something that is not very normal to see in videos like this, perhaps in favor of people who are afraid of needles.
In France they are interested in everyone getting vaccinated but still they are not about to accept the entry into the country of tourists or people who are inoculated with vaccines that they consider unsafe. Specifically, the Sinovac and Sputnik V vaccines are on their unacceptable list and for now, there is only a green light for people with AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson.
However, that could change in the future since, at the beginning of June, the WHO authorized the use of the Sinovac vaccine.
