PARIS (Reuters) – Consignments of Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine should arrive in France this week, Dominique Le Guludec, head of France’s medical regulator, said on Monday.

“I think that the Moderna vaccine ought to arrive this week,” Le Guludec, head of the Haute Autorite de Sante (HAS), told BFM TV.

Epidemiologist and government scientific adviser Arnaud Fontanet told France Info radio that France needed to speed up its rollout of vaccines.
