As of 5:30 am Saturday morning, citizens lined up in front of the Knights of Columbus room to get their vaccination coupons.
The 280 volunteers thus received their second injection of AstraZeneca.
To be eligible, you had to have received your first dose before April 3.
The experience will be repeated on Sunday, at the same location: 280 doses, still from the British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, will be accessible without an appointment to people aged 45 and over who have received their first dose before April 3.
On Monday and Tuesday, 3,000 doses per day will be waiting for volunteers at the vaccination clinics of the Center de foires and Laval University. Vaccination will be available from 6 a.m. in the morning and will end when stocks run out or at 9 p.m.
Again, only people who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine before April 3 will be able to receive their second dose during this walk-in vaccination effort.
In addition, the CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale reserves 2,000 of the 8,500 doses received on Friday to vaccinate people a second time at home.
Walk-in vaccination for young people
In addition, on the strength of the success met last weekend with its walk-in vaccination effort aimed at the youngest, public health is making available, Sunday, 150 doses of Pfizer for citizens from 12 to 30 years old.
This walk-in clinic will be open from 1 p.m.
As of Friday, 60.8% of the population of the Capitale-Nationale had received at least one dose of vaccine against COVID-19.
By adding people who have made an appointment at a vaccination clinic, this proportion rises to 70% of the total population.
