MISE & Agrave; DAY
In Quebec, more than 50,000 children aged 5 to 11 received their first dose, less than a week after the start of vaccination in this age group. & nbsp;
In Laval, more than 20% of children received their first injection, or made an appointment for it, during the first five days of eligibility.
“ It's still impressive, given that we have not yet started vaccination in schools, ”said Laval's COVID-19 vaccination coordinator, Serge Asselin, in an interview with TVA Nouvelles.
The latter adds that all the appointment time slots have filled up quickly.
In addition, mobile clinics will be deployed in schools in Laval as of Wednesday, in order to speed up the vaccination campaign. The goal is for everyone who wants to have their first dose before the holidays.
