At 4:30 am, the first people presented themselves at the CERVO Research Center in Quebec, in the Beauport sector, and at the L’Ancienne-Lorette site, to obtain a place.
“It went very well, it’s a step in the right direction,” said Marc Bergeron, who arrived around 5:30 am Thursday morning. He preferred to show up on Thursday morning than to wait another three weeks. Already about thirty cars were in line when he arrived. “There are more people than the lines of the SQDC”, he jokes.
Those aged 55 and over can get a coupon to get vaccinated the same day, on a first come, first served basis.
At around 7 a.m., people were informed that the 960 coupons had been distributed to CERVO. They will have to come back tomorrow morning at 6 a.m.
A line stretches from La Canardière to rue d’Estimauville, where motorists move slowly.
At the Ancienne-Lorette site, the 300 coupons were used up after 15 minutes.
