The MNA for Pontiac, André Fortin, recalled that there are doses of vaccines available only for the day of March 17, but also invited the government to make more doses available for the Outaouais.

“If we are in a region where the risk has increased, before bringing us back to the red zone, the government is obliged to increase the number of vaccinations. If we look at the two regions which currently have an increase in cases, it is the Outaouais and Saguenay, it is surely no coincidence that these are the two regions which have the fewest people vaccinated, ”says André Fortin.

André Fortin mentioned that he had already made this request to the government this morning. “The government must also explain once again when it will decide to change the area and why,” says André Fortin.

The full interview with André Fortin is available here.
