“Expanding vaccinations to these two new groups in the Laurentians marks an important new stage in the battle we have been fighting for more than a year. It brings hope for the future. We encourage everyone to heed the call and get vaccinated,” said Caroline Chantal, director of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the CISSS des Laurentides.
Given the limited availability of vaccine doses, the vaccine roll-out is being done in stages. Although
vaccinations are by age group; it will still be possible for older seniors to make an appointment to be
vaccinated even after the campaign in their region has moved on to subsequent age groups.
