"We're very very pleased to announce that we will work with [pharmacies] in the Montreal area," said Dubé. "People will be able to be vaccinated in pharmacies."

The health minister explained the government aims to "intensify" the vaccination campaign in regions where COVID-19 virus variants "are more present."

Dubé added that around 17,000 people got their first vaccine dose on the first day of mass vaccinations on March 1.
