Quebec has just announced that everyone 18 and older will be able to book an appointment for COVID-19 vaccines as of May 14.
The announcement was made this afternoon by public health director Horacio Arruda, health minister Christian Dubé and Premier François Legault.
Those aged 50-59 will be eligible for a vaccine tomorrow, April 30. By the end of next week, anyone over 35 will be eligible. The province hopes to have registration open to all adults by May 14.
"The sky is starting to get sunny," Dube said as he announced the news at a press conference Thursday.
Here is a breakdown of specific dates:
