To more easily vaccinate healthcare workers in the northern part of the region, the Laurentian Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS) is preparing for the upcoming opening of two new COVID-19 vaccination sites in the premises of the Pavillon Philippe-Lapointe in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts and the CLSC de Mont-Laurier.
The CISSS plans to open the Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts site in the week of January 25 and that of the CLSC de Mont-Laurier next February. The opening of vaccination sites is however conditional on receipt of vaccines.
“These new vaccination sites will allow health workers in these two sectors to be vaccinated without having to travel to the Boisbriand vaccination clinic, which represents several kilometers of travel for them. Residents of the Philippe-Lapointe Pavilion and those staying in nearby intermediate resources will also be vaccinated as a priority. The CISSS des Laurentides is also currently looking at different venues to open additional vaccination sites, as vaccination becomes available to new groups. Our goal is to offer our services, such as vaccination, as close as possible to where people live.” said the President and CEO of the CISSS des Laurentides, Ms. Rosemonde Landry.
The CISSS des Laurentides will communicate with people eligible for vaccination in these sectors, respecting the order of priority, upon receipt of new doses of vaccines.
