COVID: Quebec to Start Vaccinating Seniors 85 and Over on March 1

Quebec Premier François Legault provides an update on the province’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign during a press conference at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, which is being used as one of several mass vaccination sites in the city. The premier announces that mass vaccination for people over 85 will begin March 1. Vaccination will start in Montreal but all eligible Quebecers will be able to book their appointments starting February 25. The premier is joined by Christian Dubé, Quebec’s minister of health and social services, and Dr. Horacio Arruda, the province’s director of public health. (February 23, 2021) (no interpretation)
