Quebec will begin vaccinating seniors age 85 and over against COVID-19. Montreal is expecting to give out at least 75,000 vaccine doses in the first week to people born in or before 1936 who do not live-in long-term care homes or seniors’ residences.

You can book appointments, starting at 8 a.m. February 24, via québec.ca/covidvaccine.

You can also book an appointment by calling 1-877-644-4545 on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., and on weekends between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Please note that medicare cards will not be necessary to book appointments.

According to the website, a person who accompanies someone who is 85 years of age or older to a vaccination appointment may get the vaccine at the same time if they meet the following criteria:

  • They are 70 years of age or older;
  • They provide support to their loved one who is over 85 years of age 3 or more days a week.
  • Only one accompanying person can get vaccinated per person over 85 years of age.

**We recommend you double check this info when booking an appointment**
