PARIS, Nov 25 (Reuters) - French Health Minister Olivier Veran said on Thursday that France had enough COVID-19 vaccine doses in supply as the country is about to launch a booster shot campaign for all adults in the hope to contain a new wave of the disease.

During a news conference, Veran said France had about 25 million doses at its disposal. As of today, a little more than six million people have received a booster shot. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten and Sudip Kar-Gupta; Editing by Dominique Vidalon)
