The site will be at .

Residents without an internet connection can call 1-877-644-4545 to register.

However, Legault stressed that anyone younger than 85 years old has to wait their turn and not call or book a spot yet.

The government website notes that appointments will be mandatory.

The province's vaccination campaign will begin in the Montreal area, where a number of vaccination sites have already been announced.

The premier said that the move to administer doses to the general population represents a hopeful step forward, but he also urged caution.

"We have to be careful in the next weeks," he said, reminding listeners that COVID-19 virus variants continue to spread.

"If we don't pay attention, we could see the number of cases explode."
