Faced with the start of the 4th wave of COVID-19 infections, Quebec will implement a vaccine passport system – .


div id = ””> Quebec will set up a vaccination passport system in the coming weeks, Premier François Legault announced today.

Details of the system will be released soon, Legault said. But he said the increase in the number of cases in Quebec and the prospect of more hospitalizations and deaths have made the vaccine passport system necessary.

The system will allow the province to avoid the widespread closures that have marked its response to the pandemic to date, he said.

“People who have made the effort to get their two doses should be able to live somewhat normal lives,” said Legault.

France and Italy have already set up vaccination passport systems. New York City will begin implementing a system later this month.

Earlier this week, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé said Quebeckers who are not fully vaccinated could be excluded from places and activities deemed to be “high” or “moderate” risk – such as gyms. , team sports and theaters, for example – as an alternative to generalized confinement.
