Quebec has announced the opening of a bike- and drive-thru vaccine site for Montrealers hoping to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The site will be located at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and will take place on the weekends of May 29 to 30, as well as June 5 to 6 and June 12 to 13.

Appointments by car will be on June 5, 6, 12, and 13.

Cyclists can make an appointment or simply show up at the track on May 29 and 30.

Health Minister Christian Dubé and Montreal mayor Valérie Plante made the announcement at a press conference on Wednesday.

"Since there's no Formula 1, there are a lot of cyclists who ride the track and love this site," said Plante. "So, to live the experience of a 'pit stop' to get a vaccine, I think is a great idea."

500 doses will be available for people without an appointment.

Montreal's first drive-thru vaccination centre opened at the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport on May 17.
