Quebec is expanding booster shot eligibility to anyone 18 and older on a gradual basis starting in early January. Health Minister Christian Dubé made the announcement earlier today as cases of COVID-19 are reaching record levels across all of Quebec.

Dubé said he expects to vaccinate the entire eligible population in Quebec with a third dose by March 2022.

Quebecers will be able to book their appointments between Dec. 29 and Jan. 21.

Here is the schedule for when you can book an appointment for a third dose of the vaccine in the New Year:

 Jan. 4: 55-59 years old

 Jan. 6: 50-54 years old

 Jan. 10: 45-49 years old

 Jan. 12: 40-44 years old

 Jan. 14: 35-39 years old

 Jan. 17: 30-34 years old

 Jan. 19: 25-29 years old

 Jan. 21: 18-24 years old

"The Omicron contagion is so exponential that we must remove a lot of staff from the network, as I've explained, and that presents a risk on the network capacity to treat Quebecers," Dubé said.

"But now currently, we must take very concrete and practical steps. This is risk management and the question of balancing things out."
