Update April 8, 2021: As of today, the Department of Health and Social Services invites seniors from 60 years and over (born 1961 and before) to make an appointment to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Remember that the availability of vaccines being limited, vaccination in the population takes place in stages. Although vaccination takes place by age group, it will still be possible for an older person to make an appointment to be vaccinated even if the vaccination sequence in their region has been extended to the following age groups.
“The third wave of the pandemic is affecting us now, which makes it even more relevant to protect ourselves from the COVID-19 virus as soon as possible. Also, I think it’s important to remember that the vaccine can take up to three weeks to be fully effective. It is therefore essential that vaccinated people continue to respect health measures, ”says Caroline Chantal, director of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the CISSS des Laurentides.
Visiting the site Québec.ca / vaccinCOVID is the easiest and fastest way to make an appointment and to follow the progress of the campaign by region.
If you are not comfortable with the Internet, you can also dial 1 866 495-5833. If necessary, relatives are encouraged to offer support to seniors for making appointments online.
For all the details concerning the doses reserved for the walk-in vaccination of people aged 55 to 79, consult santelaurentides.gouv.qc.ca.
