While the province already offered dating for people 70 and older, several groups have been added to the list, including:

  • People with chronic diseases
  • Pregnant women
  • Health workers
  • People who live in remote areas
  • People aged 60 and over

The third doses are given six months after the second.

All these new groups, in addition to the sixties, about a million people in total, will be able to receive vaccines this month. People with chronic health problems or who are pregnant can now book appointments through Health Click .

Appointments for people 65 to 69 years old will open on January 4.

Those between 60 and 64 years old will be able to make appointments from January 6.

While Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization has recommended booster shots for all people over the age of 50, Quebec has yet to show any signs of expanding eligibility for people over 50.
