Montrealers aged 75 years and above can now register for their COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Most of the other regions in Quebec still limit the vaccination to those over the age of 85 years. Initially, the vaccination limit for Montreal had been lowered to 80, but on Sunday evening, the Clic Sante website allowed residents of Montreal and Laval aged 75 and above to register for their appointment.
The website also allows caregivers of people aged 80 and above to register for the appointment at the same time as the person they are caring for. Several sites in Montreal are ready to start vaccination on Monday. The public health official in the region said that the City of Montreal has the capability of administering a thousand doses in a day.
In the next four weeks, 700 000 doses of vaccine are scheduled to arrive in the next four weeks in Quebec. The doses include the Astrazenica vaccine, which last week was approved by Health Canada. Quebecers who are eligible to receive the vaccine can book their appointment through the Clic Sante website or call 1-877-644-4545.
