AstraZeneca vaccine available to 45 and older

AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine

The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine age restriction has been lowered to 45 years old starting Wednesday morning (April 21, 2021).

Quebecers can now walk into an AstraZeneca Vaccine center without an appointment or with an appointment at certain clinics as long as they where born in 1975 and up. The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine was only available to 55 to 79 year olds as of now.

The Quebec government has had a hard time to convince Quebecers to take the vaccine since reports of rare blood clots of people around the world who received it.

This past weekend only 4,500 people received the vaccine in Montreal and the government allowed 20,000 doses available.

Medical health experts have stressed that any risk of taking the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine are far less than the benefits.

Ontario and Alberta have lowered the age to receive the vaccine to 40 years old and over.

Tuesday a reported 1,136 new cases and 17 deaths in Quebec.

A total of 2,448,400 vaccines have been administered in Quebec and almost 48,000 in the last 24 hours.
