All adult Quebecers who want the COVID-19 vaccine will be able to sign up for their first shot in the next two weeks. Starting tomorrow, those aged 50-59 can sign up, with a new age group added to the list every two or three days.
Quebec Minister of Health and Social Services Christian Dubé made the announcement at an afternoon press conference joined by National Public Health Director Dr. Horacio Arruda and Daniel Paré, director of the COVID Vaccination Campaign.
The rollout is as follows:
- April 30: Age 50-59
- May 3: Age 45-49
- May 5: Age 40-44
- May 7: Age 35-39
- May 10: Age 30-34
- May 12: Age 25-29
- May 14: Age 18-24
Most of these people will receive the Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine, though some of it could be from Moderna or Johnson & Johnson (which only requires one dose). This is separate from when Quebec made their remaining AstraZeneca vaccine shots available to people aged 45 and up last week. That campaign is still ongoing and clearly identified as separate on the government’s website.
You can make an appointment for your COVID-19 vaccine shot when it becomes available to your age group through the Clic Santé website
