Quebec travelers can get an additional COVID-19 vaccine if their country of destination requires it – .


MONTREAL – Quebec travelers can now receive an additional dose of an RNA coronavirus vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) if their country of destination requires it.

The province’s website says anyone who has received two doses of any of the approved vaccines is considered “sufficiently protected” against COVID-19.

“This is not the case in all countries”, we can read. “Indeed, there is no international consensus on what should be recognized as ‘adequately vaccinated’. “

Those who need two doses of an RNA vaccine can get an additional injection by making an appointment with ClicSante or by going to a walk-in clinic.

The province, however, warned that “there are currently no studies to assess the impact of this additional dose.”

“The person must be properly counseled to be informed of the potential risks associated with this additional dose, compared to the benefits of the planned trip. “

In total, the province received 12,228,529 doses from the federal government.
