60% of Quebecers 12+ have now received their second dose

On track to reach 75% by Aug. 31.

Quebec Heath Minister Christian Dubé has just confirmed that 60% of Quebecers who are 12 years old and older have now received their second dose of the vaccine. Quebec is on track to achieve its goal of at least 75% of the province fully vaccinated by Aug. 31, in order for public health to allow the removal of masks.

The only age group in Quebec that has not reached the 75% milestone for first doses is the 18 to 29 demographic, who are sitting at 70%. The province has introduced initiatives like the vaccine lottery in order to appeal to those individuals who need the extra incentive to get vaccinated.

“It has never been easier to move your appointment ahead by four weeks through ClicSanté. We are staying the course on our target to achieve at least 75% vaccination in 12+ by Aug. 31.”
