VACCINATION CAMPAIGN

Outside Quebec, 18,196 doses were administered for a cumulative total of 7,404,597, or 70.3% of the population.

The Premier of Quebec, François Legault, who received his second dose of COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, says he wants to reach out to young people to encourage them to be vaccinated.

“I tell them it’s important for their own protection, important for any vulnerable friends they may have; in the future it will be important if they want to travel abroad because most countries will ask for both doses, ”he said. “It’s important if we want to get back to normal life that they get these two doses. “

The province has so far received 8,285,035 doses of the vaccine.
