Quebec is now allowing anyone over the age of 60 in Montreal to book an appointment to get a COVID-19 vaccination. Elsewhere in the province, where the age is upwards of 80, the accompanying person must be at least 70.

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 60 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.

Montreal residents can register on the Clic Sante website.

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.

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