Quebec Wants Some Businesses To Create 'Vaccination Hubs'

Health Minister Chrisitan Dubé announced Friday that the province is inviting businesses to lend a helping hand with Quebec's vaccination effort by setting up sites where their employees can get their doses.

According to a press release, "the goal is to establish between 20 and 50 vaccination hubs in several regions of Quebec" where private businesses will "ensure the vaccination of employees of the company," as well as their families.

The public will also have access to the sites.

Participating companies "will have to commit to vaccinating 15,000 to 25,000 people" at their hubs between May and August.

According to the government, several companies have already expressed interest. Others can sign up online.

"Businesses are mobilizing in the interest of Quebec and economic recovery because obviously, recovery requires the vaccination of Quebecers," said Dubé.
