16 new ICU admissions in Quebec, all of whom are unvaccinated

Don’t wait till it’s too late.

Health Minister Christian Dubé has announced that there were 37 new hospitalizations yesterday in Quebec, including 16 new ICU admissions, all of whom are unvaccinated. This follows news that an unvaccinated 39-year-old Laval man died on Thursday, reportedly shortly after booking his first-dose appointment.

The province saw 837 new cases of COVID-19, of which 635 (76%) are among people who aren’t fully vaccinated. An unvaccinated person is 35.8 times more likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19.

Currently, 88% of the 12+ population in Quebec have been vaccinated with one dose, and 82% have been vaccinated with two.

Christian Dubé took the opportunity to remind Quebecers of the importance of getting vaccinated to reduce hospitalizations.

“Vaccination limits the pressure on our hospitals. You have to continue to get your 2 doses. It is never too late to get vaccinated.”
