Quebec Will Soon Open Its First Drive-Thru Vaccination Centre In Montreal

On Tuesday, Health Minister Christian Dubé announced that Quebec will be opening its first-ever drive-thru vaccination centre in Montreal's West Island.

The site, which will be located on the grounds of the Montreal Trudeau Airport, is scheduled to open in mid-May and can carry out around 4,000 vaccinations a day at full capacity.

The site will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week and will have 150 workers and volunteers on hand.  

"With its experience in population vaccination against COVID-19, the CIUSSS de l'Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal is ready to take up this new challenge and offer a new vaccination experience to residents of the West Island and to all Montrealers," the health ministry said in a press release.

The site will "massively increase the number of people vaccinated in Quebec every day," according to Lynne McVey, president and CEO of the CIUSSS de l'Ouest de l'Île-de-Montréal.
