Residents in private seniors’ residences in the Laurentians are now fully vaccinated

The Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) des Laurentides announced that, as of June 1, residents of private seniors’ residences (RPAs) in the Laurentians region have received their second dose of vaccine. Residents of these facilities are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19!
Residents of RPAs who consented to vaccination were able to get their second dose within the prescribed deadlines, enabling them to enjoy maximum protection against the virus.
This important operation was conducted onsite at each of the RPAs and executed by the CISSS des Laurentides mobiles vaccination teams.
“For our seniors, full vaccination combined with the positive evolution of the epidemiological situation in our region, along with the gradual reopening now underway, is a major step forward on the way to resuming a normal life. Seniors can now rejoice at the prospect of seeing progressively more of their family and friends, which will be extremely beneficial to their well-being”, said the deputy President and Executive Director of the CISSS des Laurentides, M. Jean-Philippe Cotton.
Mr. Cotton also emphasized the importance of complying with health regulations. ”With the summer season beginning soon, we must keep in mind that protecting everyone’s health and safety remains our top priority. It’s why we must remain vigilant, even if our seniors are now fully vaccinated. I am counting on everyone’s cooperation on this last leg of our collective efforts to vanquish the virus”, he declared.
