Quebec Is Opening Vaccination To The General Adult Population — Here Are The Dates

May 14 will be when 18 to 24 year-olds can book their appointment.

At a press conference on Thursday, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced that starting from April 30 and continuing over the next few weeks, Quebec vaccination appointments will open up to the entire adult population on Clic Santé

As of April 30, anyone 50 to 59 years old can book an appointment, then, every two days, "we'll descend a five-year age category," according to Dubé.

So what's Quebec's vaccination schedule?

What this means is that on the week of May 3, people aged 49 to 45 will be able to gradually book a vaccination appointment, then on May 5 for people aged 44 to 40 and May 7 for aged 39 to 35.

The following week, as of May 10, which Dubé has dubbed "The Week of the Young," 30 to 34-year-olds can book appointments, followed by 25 to 29 year-olds on May 12, and finally, 18 to 24 year-olds on May 14. 

"We'll be able to offer the first dose to all adult Quebecers from now until the 24th of June," said Dubé.

How do I sign up to get my first vaccine dose in Quebec?

It’s quite simple, really. 

Once your age group is up, visit Clic Santé and schedule an appointment at a vaccine centre in your area. 

The government is working out plans for drive-thru clinics. Details are forthcoming, according to Daniel Paré, who is leading the vaccination effort.

Ontario is also opening vaccination to all adults

Ontario also plans to open vaccination to adults over 18 in the next month, Narcity reports.

Ontario residents 55 years and older can book an appointment on April 30, followed by residents 50 years and older on May 3. 

The age range increases by 10 years over the following weeks, culminating with adults 18 years and older in the week of May 24.
