Quebec Is Going To Start Vaccinating The 'General Population' & Launch A Sign-Up Site
The government is also launching a sign-up site for appointments that will go live on February 25.
To vaccinate is to win against the pandemic.
Premier François Legault
The site will be at Quebec.ca/vaccincovid .
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."
