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:

April 30: ages 50 to 59

 May 3: ages 45 to 49

 May 5: ages 40 to 44

 May 7: ages 35 to 39

 May 10: ages 30 to 34

 May 12: ages 25 to 29

 May 14: ages 18 to 24

As of Thursday, at 11 a.m., Quebec has administered more than 3 million vaccine doses, including some 66,000-second doses, meaning 35 per cent of the population has rolled up their sleeves at least once so far. Of those, 76,399 people have received two doses.
