Olympic Stadium mass vaccination

Lineups for AstraZeneca started at 4 a.m. in Montreal

A new age group jumps at the chance to get the AstraZeneca vaccine.

After we were told last week that the vaccination progress in Montreal was underwhelming, with virtually no lineups at the walk-in vaccination centres, it seems that opening up the AstraZeneca vaccine to people 45+ today has had a positive effect. According to a report, which was retweeted by Christian Dubé, a lineup to get vaccinated at the Olympic Stadium with no appointment formed this morning at 4:15 a.m. (almost four hours before the site opened). The photo below was taken at 5:45 a.m.
