In a press release released yesterday (Sunday April 11), the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de l’Outaouais said workers in health and social services, who until now had not been vaccinated against COVID-19, can now make an appointment for their vaccine. This only concerns staff who are in direct contact with the population in their professional activities. The first part of the list is essential workers and according to the CISSS de l’Outaouais, an announcement will soon follow for other essential workers including school staff, daycare staff, etc.

More specifically, the target groups are:
- The personnel of the health and social services network who were not yet targeted by the vaccination;
- Health and social service workers employed in the private sector, for example in dental clinics, family medicine groups, private medical clinics, pharmacies, psychology clinics, optometry clinics, physiotherapy clinics, hearing aid clinics (this also includes technical staff);
- Community workers in contact with high-risk patients, such as street workers in mental health, homelessness and drug addiction.

During their vaccination appointment, people in this group will need to provide proof of employment to prove that they are indeed health and social services workers. This group can now make an appointment on Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID. For those who do not have access to the Internet or who have difficulty using it, you can call 1 877 644-4545 for support.
