The total number of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients has decreased by nine over the past 24 hours, totalling 248 across the province.
Over the past day, 65,947 COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the province. Since December 2020, 15,752,494 total vaccines have been distributed in Quebec.
During a Thursday press conference, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé warned of the new measures amid the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. He confirmed that the province would soon require three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to be entirely up to date with the digital passport.
As of today, Quebecers 40 years old and up can book booster shot appointments via the Clic Santé website — only if they have already received their second dose of a Health Canada-approved vaccine at least three months prior.
Public Health promises not to impose passport modifications before everyone has the chance to receive a third vaccine dose.
