The Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, has confirmed that making appointments for the general population will begin shortly. Starting tomorrow, April 30, appointment scheduling will be rolled out gradually, depending on age groups. The goal of the Quebec government is to open vaccination to everyone within two weeks.

"After opening the vaccination to all priority groups, we are finally able to start making appointments for the rest of the adult population. This is great news. I am very proud of what we have achieved so far, and also of the public response. Vaccination is the best solution that will allow us to return to normal life. Several weeks will still be needed to protect a sufficiently large part of the population, but we are approaching the goal, ”said Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé.
