This has been the question on everyones mind for the last few months. The Province of Quebec have been extremely slow on information on how and when the Quebec population will be receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
A shortage of COVID-19 vaccinations have held up the Quebec government and is the main reason single doses were given to get as many people vaccinated as possible. The Quebec government says the second does will be distributed within the 90 days recommended from manufacturers.
How do I get my appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination
At this time you can NOT. The Quebec government is vaccinating top priority groups such as healthcare workers, people who are at extreme risk.
The province of Quebec says it will contact people at the appropriate time from its website.
Appointments will be able to be made via a 1- 800 phone number ( which has not be given out) or via Clic Santé.
