The COVID-19 vaccination operation continues in the Pontiac. Some age groups are over 90%. In total, 56.4% of the population aged 18 and over has been vaccinated so far. The Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de l’Outaouais now wants to encourage all age groups 18 and over to make an appointment to get their vaccine.

“We encourage young people to make an appointment now, since as of this week, vaccination is open to those 30 and under”, repeated several times last Wednesday the director of Covid-19 vaccination in Outaouais, Nency Heroux.

As mentioned during the press conference this week by the acting director of public health in the Outaouais, Dr. Brigitte Pinard, vaccination is, according to specialists, the main solution to return to “normal”.

Remember that to make an appointment, people must register via the CLIC SANTÉ portal.
