The Department of Health is not planning a school-based vaccination campaign against COVID-19 this fall.
By e-mail, the CISSS des Iles specifies that vaccination for this age group is available during weekly clinics, but reminds us that this is not a recommendation of the Quebec Immunization Committee at this time.
For seniors, people living in CHSLDs, intermediate and family-type resources, seniors’ residences and HLMs have received a new booster dose in recent weeks.
Vaccination for babies aged 6 months to 4 years is offered once a week at the CLSC for parents who wish to receive it, the CISSS says.
Weekly vaccination clinics are organized at the L’Étang-du-Nord Recreation Centre for all age groups from 5 years old.
It is possible to receive the booster dose as well as to start the vaccination against COVID-19 with the first and second inoculations.
The teams went to the CLSC de l’Est at the beginning of September and will go to the Centre multifonctionnel de Bassin on September 15.
Finally, it is reported that the new bivalent vaccine from Moderna, recommended for those 30 years and older as a booster dose, will be available in the islands in the next few days in limited quantities at first.
