Priority groups of Quebecers are ready to receive the province’s first round of COVID-19 vaccinations as of Monday (December 21) across 21 sites throughout Quebec.

The new vaccination clinics will be in addition to the two sites that opened this past week at two long-term care homes (CHSLDs) in Quebec City and Montreal.

Quebec’s Health Minister Christian Dubé made the announcement on Thursday and specified that the 21 clinics will open at long-term care homes and hospitals.

On Thursday, Santé Quebec reported over 1,000 virus-related hospitalizations for the first time since early June.

Dubé says the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccinations will take place on December 21, 28, and January 4. Vaccinations will be reserved for the “priority population” citing elders and vulnerable people as the top priority. The health minister says these people are being contacted by health officials.

Public health says 969 Quebecers were vaccinated against the coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing the provincial total to 2,582. Health officials expect 4,875 doses to be administered by December 20.

Quebec plans to vaccinate 650,000 people by April 1, 2021.
