Extension for 1st doses and family doctor assistance

The The CISSS des Laurentides announced that it will extend its walk-in vaccination offer for people who want their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This service will continue to be offered at all vaccination sites in the region until further notice.

People eligible for the 2nd dose or the booster dose must, for their part, continue to make an appointment on Clic Santé. “Our capacity to vaccinate is increasing day by day, for all our vaccination sites. We invite people who are trying to get an appointment or who would like an earlier date to regularly consult the clicsante.ca site, as new time slots are continually being added. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the commitment of the staff at our vaccination sites, which are contributing greatly to increasing the availability of appointments at the moment,” said Ms. Rosemonde Landry, President and CEO of the CISSS des Laurentides.

It should be noted that people who have had COVID-19 will be able to obtain, if they wish, a booster dose as soon as the symptoms of the disease end. A minimum interval of three months must have elapsed between the second dose and the booster dose. People with reduced mobility and requiring accompaniment can use our free shuttle service to get to a vaccination site.

The CISSS des Laurentides also announced that as of January 11, 2022, persons needing care for minor ailments will have access to two clinics in the Laurentian region.

Two of the three new designated pediatric clinics that opened in September for children without a family doctor are broadening their service offer to include adults without a family physician. People can now seek treatment for various health issues, whether COVID-related or not.

To allow the public greater access, consultations at these designated clinics for patients without a family doctor are by appointment only in Boisbriand and Saint-Jérôme.

Persons wishing to book an appointment must meet the following criteria: They must not have a regular doctor, pediatrician or specialised nurse practitioner and must have a minor physical ailment (the list of excluded health issues is available online).

“These designated clinics for patients without a family physician aim to provide an added alternative to people in the Laurentians who need a medical consultation. This type of initiative also helps to lower the pressure on hospital emergency rooms in the region by reducing the number of consultations for non-urgent health problems,” said Ms. Rosemonde Landry, President and Executive Director of the CISSS des Laurentides
