COVID-19: Quebec unveils drive-through vaccination site at Montreal Airport

For the first time in what marks Quebec, a new drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinic will open at Montreal’s Trudeau International Airport.

The center, which was unveiled on Tuesday morning, as the province gradually expands inoculation access to the general population.

“This is a fantastic initiative and will contribute to the success of vaccinating all Quebecers,” Health Minister Christian Dube told reporters.

The clinic will be open to the public on 17 May. It will be open from 8 am to 8 pm every day.

He also indicated that there may be other drive-through vaccination centers in the province.

“I don’t think it will be the last,” he said.

Quebec has administered more than three million doses of the vaccine since the rollout began last December. Most shots given in the province are the first dose.

According to the Health Minister, the campaign is going well and there is hunger for more appointments. Registration sees an uproar every time the province lowers the minimum age requirement.

“People want to be vaccinated,” Dubey said.
