The comic book is being worked on


Another Great Classic The music was playing on my computer and this number came along. I noticed some slight differences with the LP / album version to find out it was a 1971 recording of a live performance in Pompeii. Great stuff.

▫️ Here follows a short summary of the main points presented by the Prime Minister and his team during yesterday’s press conference.


Curfew from 6 p.m. widespread all over the country from Saturday onwards and for a minimum of 2 weeks

Tighter border controls:

From Monday, all travellers wishing to visit France from outside the European Union will have to present a negative test to Covid-19 before leaving. This is to cope with the emergence of new, potentially more contagious variants of the coronavirus. These people will also have to make a solemn commitment to isolate themselves for seven days once they arrive in France, and then to redo a second PCR test at the end of this period.


The reinforced sanitary protocol in schools

Resumption of tutorials at the university


Immunisation extended to a new priority audience on Monday

The vaccination will be open “to people, whatever their age, presenting a pathology leading to a very high risk of a serious form of the disease” from Monday. This concerns some 800,000 people, Health Minister Olivier Véran said, including those treated for cancer, suffering from trisomy, severe kidney failure or having undergone an organ transplant.

Including people over 75 years of age, who will also be able to be vaccinated as of Monday, 6.4 million French people will then be called upon to be vaccinated, Olivier Véran added. They will be able to go to one of the “700 vaccination centres” that will be open from this date on the territory. To make an appointment, you will need to go to http://www.sante.fr or call 0800 009 110.


Repayment of State-guaranteed loans deferred by one year for companies

Aid to pay the fixed costs of certain closed businesses


Reconfinement not ruled out

The Prime Minister warned that a third containment would be applied “without delay” in case of “strong epidemic degradation”, while stressing that the current situation “does not require” such a measure.

▫️ Here are the current vaccination centres in the Aude departement

11 – AUDE

  • Centre de vaccination – Maison medicale de garde de Lezignan Corbières15 Boulevard Pasteur, 11200 Lézignan-Corbières – 08 09 54 19 19

This what you get when you click on the link “Prendre rendez-vous” (make an appointment). It could not be easier. I just wish I was in the category allowed to be vaccinated. On the other hand I am quite happy not to be over 75 yet.
