“I am extremely proud of the participation of adults in the vaccination campaign. I also want to thank our vaccination teams who spare no effort to promote the vaccination of more people. We had already said it, it is thanks to the vaccination that we will be able to resume a normal life and we are really close to the goal ”, indicates Dr. Julie Loslier, director of public health of the Montérégie.
“To be better protected against the virus, you need to receive a second dose of the vaccine. I therefore insist on the importance of receiving this second dose, you can even advance your appointment if you wish by following the schedule that has been proposed today ”, she continues.
A second dose in 8 weeks
The Quebec government has announced that anyone who has already received a first dose of COVID vaccine can advance their appointment to get their second dose within 8 weeks or more.
The population will be able to change their appointment for the 2e dose according to its age group following the schedule (table).
To do this, simply go to this address: Québec.ca / vaccinCOVID, click on second dose and make a new appointment (which will cancel the old one).
Note that the appointments will be kept for all people who do not wish to change the time scheduled to receive their second dose.
