Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé has announced that the province has now administered 8 million total doses: 6 million first doses (80% of 12+) and 2 million second doses (27% of 12+). Dubé confirmed that there have been 0 deaths from COVID-19 in Quebec in the last 24 hours, but also that there is a major shortfall of 127,000 vaccine appointments being taken among 18–39 year olds.

While Quebec has vaccinated 70.1% of its total population with at least one dose — the highest of any province in Canada — the province has not reached its goal of vaccinating 75% of all age groups (12+). 18–29 (66%) and 30–39 (71%) are the two age groups with the lowest percentage of their population vaccinated with at least one dose. 127,000 18–39 year olds still need to make their first dose appointment to reach the 75% benchmark.

“Everyone’s contribution makes a difference. If you want to maintain a positive situation, you have to get vaccinated. We have to play as a team.”

The province has asked that Quebecers encourage their friends, notably those 18–39 years old, to get vaccinated.
