MISE & Agrave; DAY

Here comes the turn of Quebecers who have received two doses of the AstraZeneca or Covishield vaccine to make an appointment on Clic Santé in order to obtain their booster dose.

The 3rd dose administered will be a messenger RNA vaccine, either from Pfizer or Moderna. & nbsp;

The booster dose for the 164,458 Quebecers who have received the AstraZeneca or Covishield viral vector serum is not compulsory, but it is offered to those concerned who wish it.

Their last dose must imperatively go back to six months, the obligatory interval between the 2nd and 3rd dose of serum against the coronavirus.

“Although viral vector vaccines offer very good protection against the complications of COVID-19, this protection is lower against the less severe forms of the disease than in the case of messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines or in the one where the person has received a mixed combination of the two types of vaccine, ”explains the government in a press release.

As for vaccination Quebec seniors aged 70 and over who have been inoculated against COVID with Pfizer or Moderna and who live at home, the appointment for the 3rd dose has been possible on Clic Santé for a few days.
