The COVID-19 vaccination campaign has been a resounding success and will continue for people aged 12 years and over. The CISSS des Laurentides is informing the public that the Deux-Montagnes vaccination site in the Olympia Arena will be closing on August 29th, 2021. After this date, the public is asked to go to one of the other vaccination sites in the region.
“Closing this site is necessary as the arena must resume normal activities. We have therefore arranged to redirect people who have not yet received their vaccine to another vaccination site located near their home. People who have an appointment will receive a personalised message from Clic-Santé via text or email to inform them of the change of venue”, said Ms. Rosemonde Landry, President and Executive Director of the CISSS des Laurentides.
“We are very satisfied with the way the vaccination campaign has unfolded in our region and in particular in the Deux-Montagnes MRC, where 77% of the population is fully vaccinated”, added Ms. Landry in thanking the public for their participation.
For those who are not yet vaccinated and who wish to be, it is not too late! A shuttle and escort service are available. To request it, call the appointment centre at 1-877-644-4545. In addition, mobile vaccination teams will be put in place throughout the region in the coming days to continue outreach vaccinations. The public is asked to move up their appointment for a second COVID-19 shot. A minimum interval of 4 weeks between doses is required. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect against the COVID variants.
