We must continue to accelerate the pace of vaccination."\nAlong with a reminder that "The situation is fragile. We continue to be careful to save lives."\nThe mayor did not specify when exactly these groups of people will be able to book their first appointments, but we can expect such to happen shortly according to Quebec's COVID-19 vaccination campaign.\n\nWhat order is Montreal giving out first vaccine doses?\nMontreal is following the province-wide vaccination order, which is as follows:\n\nVulnerable people and people with a significant loss of autonomy who live in residential and long-term care centres (CHSLDs) or in intermediate and family-type resources (RI‑RTFs);\nWorkers in the health and social services network who have contact with users;\nAutonomous or semi-autonomous people who live in private seniors' homes (RPAs) or in certain closed residential facilities for older adults;\nIsolated and remote communities;\nPeople 80 years of age or older;\nPeople 70 to 79 years of age;\nPeople 60 to 69 years of age;\nAdults under 60 years of age who have a chronic disease or health problem that increases the risk of complications of COVID‑19;\nAdults under 60 years of age who do not have a chronic disease or health problem that increases the risk of complications, but who provide essential services and have contact with users;\nThe rest of the adult population.\n\nMontreal is currently at step seven, and Plante's tweet tells us that the city will "soon" be moving into steps eight and nine.\n\nWhen will everyone else get their first vaccination appointment in Montreal, if they haven't yet?\nWith Montreal about to move into stages eight and nine of Quebec's vaccination order, according to Plante, that means the "rest of the adult population" will be next on the list.\nWhile it's not certain when stage 10 will begin, Premier François Legault has promised that any Quebecer who wants to be vaccinated will receive their first dose by June 24.
