Quebecers in the Montreal area should be able to book vaccine appointments at local pharmacies starting today as the Quebec government reached a deal with pharmacies that will allow them to start administering COVID-19 vaccines by March 22.

Health Minister Christian Dubé made the announcement earlier this month, saying that 350 pharmacies across Montreal will start taking appointments for vaccinations by March 15.

The program is expected to expand to more than 1,400 pharmacies across the province that will administer about two million doses but for now, the Montreal region is being prioritized due to the presence of more contagious COVID-19 variants.

Citizens can make their appointments and check the locations offering the vaccine through the Clic Santé website.

As of Sunday, people age 70 and up are able to register for shots across the province, while in Montreal the target age has dropped to 65.
