As the next batches of vaccine arrive, the list will be extended to include every long-term care facility in the Laurentians. Vaccinations at these locations will be reserved for the residents of those facilities. Priority groups for vaccination are based on the recommendation of Quebec’s immunisation committee and the goal is to prevent serious illness and deaths.
“With the arrival of this first batch of Moderna vaccines, we are pleased to be able to extend vaccinations to our vulnerable long-term care residents. This will enable us to better protect our residents as well as members of our personnel who are in close contact with them and stop the spread of the virus. In coming weeks, we hope to be able to vaccinate all 2530 residents of our CHSLDs in the region,” said the President and Executive Director of the CISSS des Laurentides, Ms. Rosemonde Landry.
