Passe Sanitaire

To protect patients, medical teams and health professionals at all our facilities (Paris, Saint-Cloud and Orsay), from August 9th, anyone who shows up at the entrance of the Institut Curie Hospital Group must present a valid Covid certificate, per the procedures below.

Institut Curie patients

On admission to our facilities in Paris, Saint-Cloud or Orsay, any patient aged older than 12, arriving for a scheduled consultation or planned admission (to the outpatient clinic or conventional admission) must present their Covid certificate, i.e., one of the following documents:

  • Certificate of full vaccination (two doses, with the second dose administered at least 7 days previously or one dose, if the individual contracted Covid-19 prior to vaccination).

From May 27, all vaccinated individuals, including those who received it before May 3, can get their vaccine certificate via the Assurance Maladie “patient portal”. This certificate may be presented as a hardcopy, or as a digital version using the Tous Anti-Covid app.

  • If you have not been vaccinated, a negative result on a PCR or antigen test in the previous 72 hours.

Patients attending reception without an appointment (emergency department) will not be asked to present a Covid certificate to access the hospital. It is highly recommended that all our patients get vaccinated, however (see Information on the Covid-19 vaccine).

 

During the pandemic, we ask all patients to adhere to protective measures:

  • Wearing a surgical or FFP2 mask is mandatory. Institut Curie no longer authorizes fabric masks. The mask must cover the mouth and nose. Please attend with your surgical or FFP2 mask.
  • Hand sanitizer must be used on admission to the facility.

 

Caregivers and visitors

To protect patients, medical teams and health professionals at all our facilities (Paris, Saint-Cloud and Orsay), all caregivers and visitors aged older than 12 must present their Covid certificate at reception, i.e., one of the following documents:

  • Certificate of full vaccination (two doses, with the second dose administered at least 7 days previously or one dose, if the individual contracted Covid-19 prior to vaccination).

From May 27, all vaccinated individuals, including those who received it before May 3, can get their vaccine certificate via the Assurance Maladie “patient portal”. This certificate may be presented as a hardcopy, or as a digital version using the Tous Anti-Covid app.

  • If you have not been vaccinated, a negative result on a PCR or antigen test in the previous 72 hours.

The following procedures remain in place:

  • Caregivers are not authorized in outpatient services (outpatient clinic, outpatient surgery unit) except in specific circumstances.
  • Visits to the inpatient sectors are limited to one visitor at a time between 13:00 and 20:00, subject to specific situations, authorized by the care teams.
  • Wearing a surgical or FFP2 mask is mandatory during all patient visits. Institut Curie no longer authorizes fabric masks. The mask must cover the mouth and nose. Please attend with your surgical or FFP2 mask.
  • Hand sanitizer must be used on admission to the facility.
  • Hands must be disinfected at least when entering and leaving the room.

Information on the Covid-19 vaccine

Institut Curie and its Hospital Group are actively protecting patients and staff. Institut Curie Hospital Group teams at our three sites, in Paris, Saint-Cloud and Orsay, are ready to welcome all patients safely.

Institut Curie strongly urges patients to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

Although the rate of vaccination among cancer patients remains much higher than the general population, it is essential that everyone continues to work toward vaccination.

The French National Cancer Institute (INCa) states that “vaccination of patients and their loved ones, along with the protective measures, remains the best way to protect against the risk of infection and developing a serious form of the disease.

Patients with cancer are among the groups at risk of developing severe complications of Covid-19.

In addition, Covid-19 infection risks causing delays to treatment, which affects the chances of achieving the expected effectiveness.

As with the general population, vaccination is so far the only way to stop the virus from evolving, to protect you and your loved ones from infection.
