Health Minister Christian Dubé says the government’s goal is to have all Quebec citizens who want the shot be vaccinated by June 23. He says teenagers will get their second COVID-19 vaccine by the end of summer before the next school year begins.
Only the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine has been approved by Health Canada for the 12 to 17 age group.
The age group can now reserve a spot through the Clic Santé website.
As of Monday morning, Quebec has administered 5,829,449 COVID-19 vaccines across the province since December 2020.
