COVID-19: Quebec to open pop-up vaccine clinic to get unvaccinated their 1st dose
CA, 25 Jan 2022
The Quebec government says a new “positive approach” to persuade people to get their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine will complement the punitive measures so far imposed to increase vaccination rates.
“It’s really intensification of what has been done before,” junior health minister Lionel Carmant told reporters Monday in reference to a question about whether the government had any novel ideas to reach the roughly 540,000 Quebecers who so far have not had a single dose of vaccine.
A pop-up vaccination clinic will open in downtown Montreal this week and a telephone line will be set up and staffed by medical professionals to field calls from residents seeking information about the vaccines, he said.
Global’s Raquel Fletcher explains the measure.
